Can I get away with one syringe of cheek filler to address my under-eye area or do I need a syringe there as well?

A patient asked 10 months ago
I went in for consultation for under eye filler and the nurse injector stated that she almost never does under eye filler without doing cheek filler first. She recommended I get 2 syringes of Voluma before the 1 syringe of under eye filler. I am wondering if 1 syringe of cheek filler plus 1 syringe of under eye filler will suffice. I am 34 years old.

Cheek Filler & Under Eye Filler

 
Hi and thank you for your question! While each patient is different and an in-person consultation and examination is needed, I frequently inject cheek filler together with filler under the eyes for a more uniform and natural-looking results. In many patients, injecting filler under the eyes without addressing the volume loss in cheeks will lead to unsatisfactory results. Regarding the number of syringe needed, as long as your injector is experienced and you have done your research to make sure she is the right one for you, you should trust her recommendation and going below the recommended number of syringes might not be the best approach. I hope it helps and good luck!
