Cheek augmentation is done to enhance the cheekbones, which creates a more youthful facial appearance. This can be done using either implants that are hidden below the skin or by fat transfer or facial filler injections that highlight this area by adding volume to enhance beauty.
Patients who want defined cheeks that enhance their appearance are the ideal candidates for a cheek augmentation procedure. The best candidates are in good health and are non-smokers.
Patients who are still recovering from a recent surgery or are currently experiencing a severe illness would be advised to wait until they are fully healed before considering taking this procedure.
A cheek augmentation consultation with one of our doctors will involve a discussion of your aesthetic needs and goals. Your doctor will examine your facial structure and look over your medical history. This will include information about any past procedures, your current medications and supplements, and any allergies.
Your doctor will tell you more about the procedure and what it involves in order to prepare you for it. They will be happy to answer questions. At the end of this consultation, a date will be set for the cheek augmentation procedure.
There are many different types of cheek implants that are used to improve the facial appearance. Speak to your board-certified doctor about which implants are right for you.
Depending on the type of filler used, the results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Some types of filler and the use of cheek implants provide a permanent improvement in the cheek appearance.
Filler injections are done in the office and take only minutes to complete. Surgical procedures such as cheek implant surgery are done as an outpatient, with you going home after the procedure.
All the incisions for cheek implant surgery are made inside the mouth to prevent any visible scarring on the outside.
Following a cheek augmentation session, patients will be advised to rest. The affected areas will experience some degree of swelling and bruising, but these will fade. Keeping one’s head elevated during recovery is recommended. Time off from work may be required, and patients should avoid strenuous physical activities for several weeks.
The total cost of this surgery is determined based on factors like your medical examinations, surgeon’s fee, hospital charges, post-surgery garments, and anesthesia. The exact techniques used will also impact cost, as will the total time needed to perform the surgery. Contact us for more information.
