Filling the cheekbones

Some are born with it, others dream of it: prominent cheekbones. But even naturally gorgeous cheekbones lose their shape when support tissue is lost as a result of natural ageing. Fillers help restore lost volume to the cheekbones or may be applied to simply accentuate them beautifully, if you wish.

Why have a cheekbone treatment?

In young men and women, fillers in the cheekbones accentuate the V-shape of the face, which consequently radiates youthfulness. In the more mature man or woman a cheekbone treatment removes tiredness from the face and restores natural contours.


A symmetrical V-shape of the face is associated with natural beauty and youth. However, our physicians will look at your natural facial shape before proposing any form of treatment. A cheekbone treatment gives the face a subtle lift, so as a result you will look rested but still entirely natural. Filling up the cheekbones also immediately softens the nasolabial fold lines, thereby giving an illusion of youth to the entire face.

  • Restore natural contours
  • Accentuate facial V-line

The treatment

Before treatment, some pictures are taken for your personal dossier. After you have given the doctor written consent for treatment and your health has been mapped out, an anaesthetic cream is to the area surrounding your cheekbones. The procedure itself does not take more than a few minutes. You will receive between five and ten injections to the area that is to be treated. After the doctor has massaged the treatment area, you will have the option to cool your cheekbones with an icepack. The prices in our video are maybe not the actual prices. Please look at our pricelist for the actual prices.

Natural result

The doctors of The Body Clinic prefer to use a little less product for the initial procedure to leave some wriggling space for an optional touch-up during the free check-up appointment. This way, we can guarantee you the best and most natural end result. Our doctors use hyaluronic acid for their fillers. This bioactive product has an enhancing effect on the skin through natural hydration and stimulation of the collagen.
We aim to deliver a youthful appearance and contours. You do not have to fear over-the-top American style work. After all, you want to look better, not different. Precisely this is our strength: ‘Less is more’.

Before and after the treatment

Before the treatment

Our advice is to arrive half an hour in advance of your appointment. We will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. Some time is required for the effect of the cream to kick in. To prevent bruising: We recommend you starting your intake of Arnica drops (maximum dosage) for five days leading up to your appointment and urge you to quit taking food supplement, vitamins and fish oil five days in advance as well. We also advise you not to drink any alcohol for 48 hours before your appointment. Also, quit taking any blood-thinning medications such as Naproxen, Ibuprofen and Aspirin a full week in advance of your appointment. If you take these medications regularly, please consult your family doctor.

After the treatment

You may immediately cool the treated area following your procedure. Avoid exposure to the sun for the first week post-procedure. Also, do not visit a tanning salon or sauna. Make sure to apply a sunscreen with a high SPF every day. We advise you to avoid all beauty or skin therapist treatments for two weeks post-treatment. We would like to welcome you back to our clinic for a check-up appointment after two weeks.

Recovery time

Although in most cases your cheekbones will not appear to have undergone a procedure, some swelling might occur. This can persist for a few days. You might also experience some minor bruising at the treated area, but you are allowed to camouflage the bruising a few hours after treatment.

Effect duration

The final results of your treatment should be visible after approximately two weeks. Subsequently the filler will slowly dissolve. After twelve months, you can schedule a follow-up treatment.

Free intake

At The Body Clinic, we think it is important that you make a well-informed decision when selecting treatment. So our free, no obligation intake is carried out by the same physician who does the treatment if and when you decide to have it. All your options will be mapped out, and alternatives considered. You will receive tailor-made, personal advice. If you wish, you can have treatment straight away.


The Princess-brand filler that we use in the area of the cheekbones is extremely safe. We only utilize hyaluronic acids that have been commercially available for a long time, the safety of which has been proved over the long term. A major advantage of hyaluronic acid is that it is naturally found inside your skin. Here it contributes to the hydration and elasticity of the skin. Your body is familiar with this substance, making the chances of any allergic reaction or bodily rejection very much negligible. Over 40 million treatments have been carried out with this filler, and to date no noteworthy complications or adverse effects have been observed. Finally, this filler can be actively dissolved with the use of the solvent Hyason. This guarantees that extra bit of safety and a treatment tailored to your very needs.

Will I get apple-cheeks if I fill my cheekbones?

No, our physicians fill the cheekbones high up. This prevents the face from becoming apple-cheeked. Sometimes it may be the right decision to treat the temples too for an especially natural result. This lifts the face optically even more.

Will filling my cheekbones optically lift the lower side of my face?

Adding volume to cheekbones and, if required, to the temples as well, restores the V-shape of the face. The upper side of the face is lifted optically and in addition the nasolabial fold becomes less deep. To optically lift the lower side of the face, it is best that we treat the corners of the mouth as well. It may be very difficult, even impossible, to lift the lower part of the face using fillers. Please discuss this with our physician during your free intake consultation.

What are the costs of cheekbone treatment?

Depending on the number of millilitres used, The Body Clinic will charge between 550-700 euros. If you combine this with a liquid facelift, it’ll be less expensive.

Am I not too young for cheekbone treatment?

On the contrary – young people also qualify for cheekbone and lip treatment. The Body Clinic often performs procedures on professional fashion and beauty models who want optimization of their cheekbones and lips. And for models, more than for anyone else, the appearance of natural contours is of the utmost importance. This is exactly what The Body Clinic guarantees.
