Over time, your body slows down the production of collagen, which can cause your face to lose volume. This can create sunken facial features that make you look older. Cheek augmentation can bring back volume and balance to the face to look years younger.
What is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that reduces sagging skin and boosts volume to the face. There are a few cosmetic surgery techniques that help lift cheekbones and restore volume to the face. Fat from other areas of the body or dermal fillers can be injected into the soft tissues to bring more fullness to the target areas. Volume can also be restored through cheek implants.
Implants are the only permanent solution out of these three treatment options for cheek augmentation. There are several different options available to choose from for cheek implants. Fat transfers and dermal fillers may require multiple treatments to help maintain optimal results. Cheek augmentation can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance your appearance.
Ideal Cheek Augmentation Candidates
A consultation with a board certified surgeon can help determine if you are an ideal candidate for cheek augmentation. Cheek augmentation is ideal for individuals who are unhappy with the contour of their face. If you are taking anti-inflammatory medications or blood thinners, you may want to speak with your doctor before considering cheek augmentation. Individuals should be in good general health with no chronic underlying medical conditions that could impact healing. If you are pregnant or nursing, you may want to delay cheek augmentation.
