Cheek fillers can be used for cheek enhancement or for a cheek lift. A cheek enhancement involves cheek injections to glamourise facial features. This can be performed in young women or less young women. A cheek lift refers to restoring lost midface volume.
When we are young, our cheeks naturally have more volume. Over time this volume decreases in women and men and can lead us to look tired even when we are not. A cheek lift is, as it sounds, lifting volume back into a more youthful position for rejuvenation. Techniques for cheek lift include midface thread lift, cheek injections, surgical facelift or surgical cheek implants.

Fillers can be viewed as non-surgical cheek implants for restoring youthful volume and glamorising the face with more definition.

Facial Thread For Cheek Lift
Facial threads are rapidly growing treatment because you can achieve more dramatic lifting and rejuvenation without the downtime associated with surgery.

Surgical Approach to Cheek Lift
Surgery can provide the most dramatic cheek lift for advanced aging. You will still require volume replacement in the form of fat transfer or cheek fillers to achieve a natural result, as a surgical cheek lift does not restore volume. With surgery, you need to factor in the risk and downtime associated with surgery. Dr Shadi does not perform surgery, but she can refer to very good plastic and cosmetic surgeons.
