Filler Treatment to Cheeks


The cheeks are a fundamental component of beauty. Fuller and more defined cheeks not only contribute to beauty but are also a sign of youth. In the modern age of smartphones and selfies, the expectation to look picture perfect has never been greater

Dr. Faisal typically consults two groups of patients

The first group is younger and would like more contoured cheeks

The second is a little older and they typically complain of their cheeks flattening and not being as round as they once were. The flattening of the cheek also leads to secondary effects like deepening of the laughter lines

Fillers to the cheek offer a minimally invasive method to volumise the cheeks

Fillers of the cheek fall into two groups

  1. Hyaluronic Acid
  2. Sculptra

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that exists within the body.

A synthetic form of hyaluronic acid has been used in cosmetic practice for many years. It is a very safe substance and is known to have a very low complication profile

When placed inside the body it absorbs water like a sponge, causing the volume to increase. The absorption of water hydrates the skin.

Dr. Faisal only uses the most reputable brands of Hyaluronic acid. His priority is to use products that have the highest safety standards combined with the best results and longest-lasting outcomes

His preferred partners are the Juvederm®️ range by Allergan®️, Restylane®️ by  Galderma®️ and Teoxane®️

The results with hyaluronic are immediately visible

The effects of Hyaluronic acid will last for about 9-12 months



Scupltra®️ is the trade name of a substance called poly-L-lactic acid. It is a very clever substance that promotes the body to produce a natural protein called collagen. This helps to produce a very natural cheek enhancement

The results following Sculptra ®️ injection are visible after 3 months and last for about 2-2.5 years

What is Filler Treatment to Cheeks?

It is performed in the clinic

Local anaesthetic numbing cream will be applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid typically comes in 1 cc syringes and for this, you will need about 2 cc's

A combination of a very fine needle and Cannulae are used to perform the procedure 

It is normally completed within 15-20 minutes


Sculptra®️ has to be reconstituted at least 24 hours prior to the treatment so a deposit is typically taken at booking

2 vials of Sculptra®️ are typically necessary for the cheeks. A top-up treatment may be necessary 3 months

A combination of a very fine needle and Cannulae are used to perform the procedure 

It is normally completed within 15-20 minutes

What is the Recovery following treatment

You  are able to go home immediately after treatment

Hyaluronic Acid

The filler is pliable for a couple of days after the procedure so it is advisable to avoid  putting pressure on it

There may be mild discomfort at the injection sites. This is easily managed with paracetamol

The results may look exaggerated at the start, however, the body encapsulates the filler and the result smoothes out over the next couple of weeks


The Sculptra®️ will have been diluted in saltwater, so the results will look quite exaggerated. 

The swelling will diminish over the first 5 days

You will have to massage the cheeks for 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 1 week

The result will slowly start to show over the next 2-3 months

Dr. Faisal will review you at 3 months, and the decision will be made to use another vial if necessary

How Can you Prepare for the Procedure?

Taking arnica tablets 3-4 days leading up to the procedure can significantly reduce bruising

Stopping blood thinning tablets such as aspirin, warfarin and Plavix 1 week leading up to the procedure can significantly reduce the chance of bleeding

Applying the local anaesthetic numbing cream before you arrive in the clinic can improve the efficiency with which you can have the procedure and exit the clinic

As dermal fillers aren’t a surgical procedure, you should be in good health immediately. Your capability to work or drive will not be impaired in any way. However, you may experience swelling that will last up to a couple of days. One surefire way to remedy this are cold packs, though they might prove unnecessary, since in most cases the swelling isn’t really noticeable. Beyond that, no significant aftercare is necessary. It is important, however, that you spend the rest of the day after the procedure relaxing, as you may be quite tired. Avoid working out or other high-intensity activities for the 24 hours after the treatment, as an increased heart rate begets an increased risk of bruising.

Though it is highly unlikely this will happen, should you experience significant bruising or bruising that persists longer than normal, contact your doctor. He’ll help you through ultrasound or laser treatment, which is a reliable way of reducing bruising. Keep in mind that the results brought on by dermal fillers are temporary and must be reapplied after six to nine months in order to maintain the impression of plumper, smoother, younger cheeks.

Over 2000 satisfied patients

I had surgery in February with Doctor Faisal and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I went from 64kg to 95kg with gestational diabetes during two back to back pregnancies at age 40, and ended up with massive abdominal separation. Doctor Faisal was able to perform an extremely extensive abdominal muscle and hernia repair, combined with lipo and a cosmetic tummy tuck that has completely transformed not only my appearance but my confidence and physical strength also. My body now looks better than it did before I had children. I conducted extensive research for over 3 years on best plastic surgeon Dubai before I chose Doctor Faisal based on his qualification, experience, confidence in his ability to perform this surgery without the use of a mesh as well as his extremely reassuring manner. The recovery went smoothly and my scar is healing beautifully. Its low, neat, and I didn't experience any healing complications. To anyone that is on the fence, or hesitating about moving forwards with such a procedure, I definitely say- go for it! I wish I'd done it 3 years ago and gotten back into a bikini sooner. Thanks Doctor Faisal, I will miss you!

- I had my surgery just over a year ago, and I can honestly say that I would not have gone ahead with such a life-changing surgery if it wasn't for Dr Faisal and his amazing team. From my very first visit, I knew that if I did go ahead with the surgery it would be with him. Instantly he made me feel at ease and knew that he would take care of me through the entire process. The numerous visits, messages, emails and phone calls were all answered without hesitation and the entire team provided a fully comprehensive service. Dr Faisal, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for helping me make this monumental decision and making my life better for it, I wouldn't have been able to feel the way I do about myself right now without you! I'm trying my best to not write an essay here, but I know these mere words do not do justice fr all that you and your team have done for me! Hopefully I will come by for a visit the next time I'm in Dubai! Sakira... Fellow LFC Supporter!

After extensive research and consultations for Plastic surgeons in Dubai, and a failed attempt a couple of years back, I finally encountered the amazing Dr.Faisal Salim, and I couldn’t be happier of my choice. It was a tough decision, to whom I would entrust this very important event in my life. Most of the information provided by the plastic surgeons I’ve met in Dubai, is more or less the same, but Dr.Faisal stood out from everyone else right away from my first consultation. He is extremely caring, empathic and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was ready to answer all my questions, some of them even before I asked! He reassured me and made me feel at ease. I knew right away after my first consultation that he was the one. We met several times after that, to discuss in further details my decision to go ahead with the surgery, and he was always outstanding, as the first time we met. He asked what were my expectations and what I wanted the outcome to be, my worries and fears, and then he explained what was realistically possible and what could be achieved. his expertise is just outstanding. Any doubt I had thought the entire process, he was always there, even when abroad. This means the world to someone who’s worried, scared or just stressed out. He was always very honest, approachable and caring. The aftercare was as outstanding as the pre operative care, and the results? I can’t be happier then I am now :) A shout out to his entire team at euromed clinic as well, the nurses and especially his co-ordinator Yasmina, she is just outstanding! a level of care and professionalism that one doesn’t encounter very often, till the late hours on the night before my surgery, she was sending messages, reassuring me was always available throughout the entire process. If you’re in that phase, were you still are not sure who to entrust your surgery too, After you meet with Dr.Faisal Salim, you should look nor worry anymore, he is the one. I can’t recommend him enough after what he’s done for me. Thank you Dr.Faisal!

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal and his team was outstanding. I had several consultations with different doctors before finally meeting Dr. Faisal. His personality and expertise totally convinced me to go ahead with my operation without any doubts. He took extensive time during the several consultations, where we discussed the reasonable expectations. Dr. Faisal managed to create the exact result I have wished for where other doctors told me differently and I couldn’t be happier. He has definitely exceeded my expectations. My healing process was extremely smooth without any complications and pain. Dr. Faisal is very compassionate, emphatic and caring. He takes a lot of time for each appointment and the aftercare was superb. I could not recommend him enough. The whole team at Euromed is extremely friendly. Yasmina has been an amazing patient coordinator and I thank her for her kindness and flexibility.

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal was more than outstanding! It took me a while to decide on a specific surgeon, and I had already seen many before I decided to proceed with Dr. Faisal. From the first appointment, his honesty, care and straightforwardness immediately put me at ease. I had felt I will be in good hands, and that was a prerequisite for me to go for it. We had several appointments before the surgery, and he explained everything so clearly with realistic expectations. On the day of the surgery, he was quite caring, calm and compassionate. Post the surgery, took all the time to look after me, and answer all my questions. He patiently endured my fussiness, impatience and always assured me. I was quite happy with the results, and his availability for the post-surgery follow-ups. I had a big surgery, which Dr. Faisal handles perfectly so I can’t recommend him enough. To add, Dr. Faisal has the most amazing coordinator (Yasmine), always been there, answered all my questions with care and support

I met Dr Faisal last year whilst on a quest to find a surgeon to complete a full tummy tuck, gynecomastia and lypo. I instantly felt at ease when meeting Dr Faisal and after a discussion he pointed out what was and wasn’t needed, he suggested a plan and showed me what I could expect by his previous surgeries. I had made my mind up and decided to choose him to move forward with. We met a few more times and he was very clear what I should do prior to surgery and made himself available with his mobile number for any further questions I might have. the morning of the surgery he seemed very focused and tried to help me relax and put me at ease, I felt good and trusted him fully. i was happy with the after care and was surprised with the speed of the healing process, he was regularly checking in and told me how it all went, over the next few weeks we met for appointments and dressing changes. It’s been 5 months now and I’m so happy with the results, I feel way more confident and I feel the results are even better than I expected. Great surgeon, would definitely recommend him!
