Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Augmentation

Aside from the eyes and nose, the cheek is the most prominent beauty signal on the face. The cheek is also a great indicator of youthfulness, as age tends to attenuate the strength of the malar and submalar (zygomatic) bones, leading to a gradual drop of the cheek, a condition which is exacerbated by the diminishing subcutaneous fat in the facial area.

Cheek augmentation surgery provides a great way to reverse this natural process as it is capable of contouring the cheek back to the way it looks during a patient’s glory days – or even better. In addition, the procedure is equally useful for people born with small or excessively large cheek bones.

Depending on individual patients, cheek augmentation can be performed using any one of the following three procedures:

Post-Surgery Care

The procedure normally takes less than two hours to complete. For dermal filler injections, the procedure can be completed in as little as half an hour. The stitching on the incision can be removed after ten days. It will take the same amount of time if dissolvable stitches are used. The source location of any fat tissues used will heal even quicker.


The risk of infection is very low, but extended bleeding (over a day) is quite common. Perhaps the most serious risk is the body rejecting the implants, which is very rare, and can be treated effectively with surgical intervention.
