How do you avoid “pillow face” with injectable fillers?

I avoid the over-filled appearance with injectable fillers through a conservative approach in the volumization of the face.  For example, the cheek region is a common area that we volumize with filler.  The reason we volumize this region is because it is the cheeks that lose volume and descend down the cheeks over time.  These changes result in deeper smile lines and formation of jowl.  I like to use a hyaluronic acid filler, such as Juvederm, to augment the cheeks.  We avoid the “pillow face” appearance by not over-injecting the cheeks.  The beauty of hyaluronic acid filler is that it is soft, gives a natural appearance, and safe.  It typically lasts approximately 6-12 months.
