Cheek Enhancement

OVERVIEW

The face has a lot to do with beauty and first impressions. The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but the cheeks help give balance and symmetry to the face. Many people lose volume in their cheeks with age, resulting in a hollowed or sunken appearance. Cheek enhancement can help create a more youthful appearance by adding volume to the cheek area.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your cheeks, you may consider cheek enhancement. There are many types of cheek enhancement treatments that can be used, so it's essential to find the right one for you. So if you're considering cheek enhancement surgery, keep reading!

What is cheek enhancement, and how can it help improve your appearance?

As we age, our faces naturally lose volume; this can cause the cheeks to appear sunken or hollow. Cheek enhancement is a way to restore lost volume and create fuller, more youthful-looking cheeks.

What are the different cheek enhancement procedures available, and which is best for you?

Cheek enhancement procedures are basically of two types; surgical and nonsurgical procedures.

Surgical Cheek Enhancement

Reasonable surgical cheek enhancement procedures are fat grafting and Cheek implants.

  • Fat grafting: also known as a fat injection or fat transfer, involves taking fat from another area of your body (usually the abdomen or thighs) and injecting it into the cheeks.
  • Cheek implants: Cheek implants are another option for cheek enhancement. Cheek implants are made of a solid material inserted into the cheeks through incisions in the mouth. There are three types of cheek implants available: malar, submalar, and malar/submalar combined.

Non- Cheek Enhancement

  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are nonsurgical. This enhancement option uses injectable fillers, basically substances that can be injected into the skin to add volume. The most common type of dermal filler used for cheek enhancement is hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body.

Which type of cheek enhancement procedure is right for you?

The best way to decide which type of cheek enhancement procedure is right for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation, your surgeon will assess your individual needs and goals and help you choose the best procedure to achieve your desired results.

When will you see the results?

Cheek enhancement results will depend on the type of procedure you had.

  • If you had fat grafting, it might take a few weeks for the swelling to go down and the full results to be visible.
  • If you had dermal fillers, you would see results immediately after the procedure.
  • If you had cheek implants, it might take a few months for the swelling to go down and the full results to be visible.

Results from all procedures are usually long-lasting but may not be permanent. You may need to repeat procedures every few years to maintain your results.

What are the benefits and risks associated with each cheek enhancement procedure?

Each cheek enhancement procedure has its own set of risks and benefits.

  • Fat grafting: The main benefit of fat grafting is that it is a safe and effective way to add volume to the cheeks with minimal risk. However, fat grafting is not permanent, and you may need repeat procedures every few years to maintain your results.
  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to add volume to the cheeks with minimal risk. However, dermal fillers are not permanent, and you will need to replace them every few months to maintain your results.
  • Cheek implants: Cheek implants are a permanent way to add volume to the cheeks, but they require surgery, and there is a risk of infection and other complications.

Before you decide to have cheek enhancement surgery, it is essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and concerns. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you choose the best procedure.

You don't have to hide your self-consciousness any longer. Cheek enhancement can give you the fuller, more youthful-looking cheeks you desire. There are many options available to achieve your desired results with today's technology. Be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss which procedure is right for you.
