What is cheek enhancement?
Cheek enhancement, or cheek augmentation, aims to add volume and elevate the cheek in order to restore a youthful look.
Cheek descent and loss of volume can be a result of aging and significant weight loss. These changes lead to a hollowed and aged appearance.
The objective of a cheek enhancement is to rejuvenate the face by adding volume, and lifting the cheeks. This is mainly achieved through fat grafting or injectable fillers. Rarely, surgery is required.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Cheek Enhancement?
You may be an ideal candidate for a cheek enhancement, if you:
- Desire a more youthful look
- Have cheeks that are too flat, thin, or saggy
What Does Cheek Enhancement Consist Of?
A cheek enhancement procedure with fat grafting is done under local or general anesthesia. It can also be done in the office setting with fillers.
There are three different methods for cheek enhancement:
Injectable fillers – the surgeon may choose to use fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, which are injected into the cheeks to enhance definition and improve volume. The dermal fillers can be injected with the help of a topical anesthetic.
Fat grafting – Fat grafting is ideal for long-lasting cheek enhancement results. With this option, fat is removed from a donor area, and then strategically injected into the cheeks.
Surgery – There are surgical options for cheek enhancement. Commonly, this is performed in conjunction with a face lift . The deep cheek fat pad is elevated through a facelift incision to restore a youthful and fuller cheek.
How Much Does Cheek Augmentation Cost?
The cost of cheek augmentation generally depends on the treatment plan that is developed for you. Other adjunctive procedures, such as neuromodulators and lip enhancement, will have an impact on the final cost.
