What is Cheek Augmentation, and How Is It Performed?

cheek augmentation

The cheeks are an essential part of your facial balance and harmony. However, as you age, facial skin and muscle tissue begin to change, becoming more lax and prone to sagging.

This causes a large loss of definition in all of these key areas. Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic treatment designed to restore this lost definition to help you feel and look your best.

Understanding Cheek Augmentation

Our team at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery utilizes injectable cheek augmentation to restore lost definition. Injectable cheek augmentation is a non-surgical option to enhance your cheeks with dermal fillers like Sculptra®, JUVÉDERM®, or Restylane®. Even your fat cells can be used as a filler option.

These different dermal fillers work in their own unique way to achieve different cosmetic goals. Restylane and JUVÉDERM both use hyaluronic acid to fill in desired areas, Sculptra acts as a collagen stimulator, and your own fat cells can be used for long-lasting results.

Cheek Augmentation Process

The injectable cheek augmentation process will depend on what was discussed during your consultation. That being said, the selected dermal filler is usually applied in a layered technique to ensure a gradual transition from the lower eyelid to the upper cheek. The dermal filler will be used to fill areas like the nasolabial folds and other areas to achieve a facial balance.

The process is relatively quick and takes an average of 30 minutes to complete. After the procedure, it’s best to avoid strenuous exercise and large amounts of heat for a few days. Besides some light swelling and redness, there is minimal downtime, and the procedure shouldn’t interfere with your daily routine.
