Cheek Fillers & Implants
Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that introduces silicone implants to help regain a plump, youthful look. Typically, an incision is made either below the lower lash line or on the inside of the mouth through which a cheek fillers / implant is inserted.
To create a high cheekbone, the implant is inserted into the upper cheek. To help fill out or plump a sunken face, the implants are inserted into the mid-cheek region. Your Surgeon will select the type of cheek implant most suited to the shape you want.

Cheek Fillers / implant surgery results for Men and Women
Cheek implants are suitable for both men and women looking to enhance their facial definition.
As we age, we tend to lose the fullness in our cheeks and develop minor jowling along the jaw line. Though subtle, these small changes can be very ageing. A cheek enhancement can instantly reverse both of these trends taking years off of your appearance.
The Dr Bob Khanna Clinic in reading offers a great Cheek Filler service, and free advice in a consultation.
A cheek enhancement is a quick, lunchtime procedure that can be done in about an hour.
Following a thorough review of your medical history, your doctor will apply a topical cream to minimise your discomfort during treatment.
Your doctor will then inject an appropriate dermal filler (e.g. Restylane Sub-Q or Radiesse) into the cheek area. This has two immediate affects. First, it restores the buccal fat pad over the cheek, giving you the cheek bones of your youth (or better!). Second, the lifting affect of the cheeks subtly reduces the jowling along the jaw line.
Overall, the slight changes can have a dramatic anti-ageing affect! One of the great things about a cheek enhancement is that the results are instant. You'll probably have some slight redness on the day, which will go away in a day or two. But if you've got a big event coming up, it's a great way to take years off quickly.

What are dermal & Cheek fillers?
Over time, skin can lose its elasticity and smoothness, but you can keep wrinkles at bay with the DrBk Clinic. As we grow older, the underlying tissues which give our skin a plump, youthful appearance tend to break down, resulting in laughter lines and crow's feet. Dermal fillers work to combat this problem. When injected below the skin, they can pump up those sunken or creased areas to help you regain the fullness of youth.
If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments aren't permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.
Dermal fillers, such as lip or cheek fillers, can be used to give better definition to facial features. Get a plumper pout or enjoy sharper looking cheekbones with expert cheek fillers.
Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. Your plastic surgeon will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results

Be sure to as all the questions you have about the surgery. Learning everything you can about your options, risks and benefits is the key to making an informed decision.
It is important that you explain the results that you would like. Bring photos to what you like and what you don’t like. Our consultant will be able to tell you if you are a good candidate for lip augmentation.
How is a lip augmentation performed?
There are many different types of lip augmentation procedures, each with particular advantages and limitations as will be explained below.
Injections involve filling the lip with a soft substance to create a fuller appearance. Collagen and fat are the most widely used inject-able substances.
Prepared from the collagen found in cow skin, collagen injections are used to temporarily augment the lips. Although it is purified, this collagen may cause allergic reactions in some people. For that reason, a sensitivity test should be performed before the actual lip augmentation procedure. Collagen is guaranteed by the manufacturer to be BSE-free.
Collagen is injected into the lip with a small needle. Because the body slowly absorbs the collagen, the results generally last between six and seven months. The procedure may be repeated as needed.
Fat injections are also placed in the lips with small needles. The fat used is harvested from another area of the body - most often the abdomen or the inner thighs - and is purified before it is injected into the lips. An advantage to this procedure is that there is no possibility of an allergic reaction. As with collagen injections, results are temporary. The procedure is often performed more than once to achieve desired results.

Restylane Sub Q Dermal Filler Injections in Reading
Restylane Sub Q is an ideal choice for people who want to enhance the volume in their faces.
Restylane Sub Q Dermal Filler Injections
Keeping your looks is not just about the management of facial lines and wrinkles but more about restoring lost volume in the skin. The good news is that Restylane SubQ provides deep dermal support providing help in the skin where it is needed to restore skin volume and give youthful shape and contour to the face. The effect is very natural, leaving your skin feeling firmer but soft to touch. Restylane SubQ is suitable for a wide range of patients seeking to improve their facial shape and definition without resorting to surgery or having permanent implants.
Restylane SubQ provides a non-surgical mid face lift. Whilst restoring volume in the skin in the upper half of the face to give a more youthful shape, it also diminishes the appearance of nose to mouth lines, to give a fresher look. Restylane and alternative products are used to restore the facial contours to their original healthy appearance.
Restylane SubQ also has the advantages of having long lasting results, in excess of a year, and being a non-permanent treatment. The gel in Restylane SubQ biodegrades naturally and safely over time. Beauty trends come and go and you do not want to land yourself with a look that you may regret in years to come. You also need to retain flexibility and control over your looks because your face changes shape as you age. As with all injectable treatments, some localised bruising and swelling can occur after treatment with Restylane SubQ. These side effects are temporary and usually disappear after 48 hours.
