Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves enhancing the volume and contour of the cheeks. The process begins with a consultation with a qualified and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the candidate's goals and expectations for the procedure. During the surgery, the patient is typically placed under general anesthesia. The surgeon then makes small incisions inside the mouth or on the outside of the cheeks. They will then insert implants or inject fillers into the cheeks to create the desired volume and contour. Cheek implants are typically made of silicone, Gore-Tex, or other biocompatible materials, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The surgeon will choose an implant that is best suited to the patient's individual needs and desired outcome. Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incisions with sutures. Fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, are injected directly into the cheeks to create volume and contour. Fillers are a less invasive option than implants, but the results are temporary and will need to be repeated over time. After the surgery, the patient may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
