Whichever you choose, our cheek augmentation options can help you achieve customized results for a lasting impression.
Facial filler injections are part of a non-surgical lift, which may also be referred as a liquid lift. We offer a variety of injectable fillers that can be used to enhance the cheeks, including longer acting fillers such as Voluma® and Sculptra® Aesthetic.
We also offer fat injections for cheek augmentation for potential long lasting results with minimal downtime. Using your own fat obtained from gentle liposuction, fat is placed in precise locations to enhance the cheeks. Fat transfer may also enhance other areas (ex. smile lines, lips, etc) at the same time too.
Facial implants are made of solid silicone and are designed for the mid-facial cheek area. Cheek implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes and give patients long-term improvements. Small incisions are placed inside the mouth to avoid external scars. They are made from a type of silicone that’s soft yet solid and strong, mimicking the feel of natural bone.
How It’s Performed
If you choose injectable fillers, you should expect a brief appointment involving a few injections after which you can often return to your regular activities. Facial filler patients often return to work very soon after treatment, even the same day in many cases. Any swelling resolves soon after visiting the plastic surgeon’s office.
Cheek implants and fat transfer require a brief time in surgery. Dr. Chaboki can perform your cheek augmentation with an implant or fat transfer while you are under local anesthesia with sedation or completely asleep with general anesthesia.
