What Is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure used to increase the size of the cheeks through injections. This procedure may offer temporary or permanent results depending on the type of material used. Most patients desiring larger, fuller cheeks are able to achieve their desired results with just one simple procedure.
Is Cheek Augmentation Right For Me?
Fuller cheeks can be achieved through several different cosmetic techniques. The best procedure for you depends on your overall health and desired results, along with several other determining factors. Your doctor will discuss these factors with you to help you decide which treatment option is best for you to achieve the full cheeks you desire.
Cheek Augmentation Options
Most cheek augmentation options involve an injection of a facial filler to increase the size of the cheeks, although implants may be used as well. Some of the options commonly used for cheek augmentation include:
- Collagen injections
- Patient’s own fat from another area of the body
- Restylane injections (similar to natural hyaluronic acid)
Each of these different types of cheek augmentation offer patients some kind of benefits over others. You can discuss these options further with your doctor in order to determine which procedure is best for you.
Cheek Augmentation Procedure
Once the risk of allergies is eliminated, the filler is injected directly into the cheeks through a minimally invasive procedure that takes just a few minutes to perform. Proper placement is important in order to achieve optimal results.
How Long Does Cheek Augmentation Take?
Cheek Augmentation procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and can usually be done in your doctor’s office in less than an hour.
What Should I Expect After A Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek Augmentation patients may experience mild discomfort and swelling for a few days, although these side effects usually subside on their own. The cheeks may appear to be overfilled at first, since some materials, such as collagen, lose much of their volume within a very short period of time.
How Long After A Cheek Augmentation Will I See My Results?
The exact results for your procedure will depend upon the type of augmentation performed and your desired results, although most patients are satisfied with their results immediately.
What Is The Recovery Process Like After A Cheek Augmentation?
Most patients can return to work and other normal activities within one to two days after the procedure, although exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for a bit longer. Recovery from fat grafting procedures may take longer.
How Many Cheek Augmentation Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Depending on the type of material used, patients may require multiple treatments over time to maintain their desired results. Many injectable materials, especially natural ones, are not immune to the effects of aging and will gradually deplete.
Cheek Augmentation Risks
Although cheek augmentation is considered a safe procedure, there are certain risks associated with any procedure. These risks may include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, numbness, nerve damage, swelling and scarring. Most patients undergo this procedure with no complications.
You can reduce the risk of complications by choosing a doctor who is skilled and experienced in performing this procedure.
