Apple Cheek Injection


Every time there is a beauty pageant, many people always suspect that some of the contestants have undergone cosmetic or plastic surgery, making them more attractive. My colleagues and clients often ask me if someone has had a certain type of treatment. Of course, I have no inside information, nor am I their attending physician, so I can only say “no comment”.

That being said, some contestants’ apple cheek areas seem to be especially large, and their chins are very sharp, which looks unnatural. If a woman is tall and thin, with a BMI (body mass index) that may not even reach 18, how could she have a large and round apple cheek when she lacks facial fat? Maybe it’s just makeup skills? I can only analyze it based on my knowledge and experience.

Round and plump apple cheeks give a lively, cute, and youthful feel. Therefore, apple cheek injection is a very popular medical beauty treatment. The material injected is usually hyaluronic acid, microcrystalline, poly-L-lactic acid, autologous fat, or permanent fillers. I have previously discussed the differences between hyaluronic acid, microcrystalline, and poly-L-lactic acid, so I won’t go into detail here. The technique for injecting apple cheeks is not too difficult, but the key is to control the injection site and dosage. If the injection site is incorrect, the highest point of the apple cheek may be too close to the nose or ears, which will not look good. Of course, being too high or too low is also unnatural, and symmetry is also very important. In addition, I think the most important thing is to control the dosage. If the face is already thin, don’t blindly inject too much, otherwise it may look strange. Furthermore, age is an important factor in determining the dosage of injection. You can imagine that the size of the apple cheek will definitely be different between a 60-year-old woman and a 20-year-old woman. If you need to inject, I suggest spreading the injection over different locations (including temples, nose, chin, etc.) for a more natural and balanced effect with appropriate proportions.

I hope everyone does not think that the larger the apple cheek, the better! If you need it, it is most important to discuss it with your doctor.
