Benefits of Cheek Augmentation
High cheekbones are a commonly sought-after look because they can help create a beautiful, proportioned facial appearance. If you have sunken or hollow cheeks and want to enhance your facial structure, cheek augmentation can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Whether the result of genetics or the natural aging process, people with hollow cheeks who want to add more definition to their upper face can benefit from cheek augmentation. Cheek augmentation commonly uses implants to make the cheekbones more prominent, but dermal fillers (Juvéderm or Restylane) can also be used for a more temporary, non-surgical solution.
Cheek augmentation is a popular aging and volume loss treatment performed at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge. Our team of plastic surgeons uses dermal fillers or implants depending on the patient’s goals, and both methods offer the following benefits:
Pronounced cheekbones help many patients achieve their ideal facial contour and can even make you appear younger. Cheek augmentation also corrects facial asymmetry, scaring, and birth defects to provide patients with a boost of self-confidence.
Both implants and fillers can be easily controlled to help you achieve subtle enhancements or a dramatic change to your facial appearance. Implants come in multiple sizes and your injector will carefully inject precise amounts of filler into your cheeks based on the results you hope to achieve. Cheek augmentation can also be combined with a chin augmentation to further contour the face for a youthful appearance.
The materials used for cheek augmentations are safe and create very low risks, even for a surgical procedure. Cheek implants are made of a durable silicon material and the dermal fillers used are based on a hyaluronic acid (HA) formula. HA is a biocompatible substance found in the body that gives the skin volume and hydration.
Temporary fillers only take a few days to settle. Cheek implants are a surgical procedure so they will take a bit more time, but most patients are able to resume all normal activities after a couple of weeks.
