“Cheek fillers are used to restore lost volume, creating extra definition and to lift to the face,” Emma began.

She continued to say that cheek filler provides results such as “creating contour and definition,” as well as “adding volume and lifting and projecting the mid face to restore harmony and balance as we age.”

How long does it last?

Dr Emma advises that the duration cheek filler lasts for varies.

She explained: “How long the filler lasts depends on the type of filler you get and where it is placed, but it can last from between 9months to 2 years.”

Which celebrities have cheek fillers?

Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry, 24, has revealed she had cheek fillers in the past.

She told The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine: “I love surgery. I've had loads of fillers in my face and a nose job, but I still don't like my nose so I want another one.”

Love Island beauty Megan Barton-Hanson, 26, has also been known to get cheek fillers.

Kiss Aesthetics confirmed the star has had fillers in the past, and they said on Instagram: “For those asking – yes Meg is our client and did come and see us before she entered the villa for her treatments.”

Megan reportedly had the Kylie package, which features cream being applied to the cheeks and chin before fillers are inserted.

Friends star Courtney Cox said she realised “fillers are not [her] friend” in the past.

The star had her fillers dissolved in 2017 because she “didn’t look herself.”

Dr Rosh, the Director of Cheshire clinic KLNIK, has since told The Sun, while referring to a photo of Courtney: “She's had a lot of filler especially in that middle cheek compartment giving her the 'overfilled syndrome.’

“This can happen by using inexperience practitioners or if a patient's desire to remove a line takes over so you under up overfilled rather than looking fresher and rejuvinated.”
