Throughout history, high cheekbones have been revered as a sign of beauty. Having less pronounced cheek bones can leave one feeling that their appearance is dull or lacking definition. As people age, the skin covering the cheekbone starts to sag, resulting in a flatter, less contoured face.
In some cases, this loss of tissue can be mitigated with dermal fillers or fat grafting. In others, however, cheek implants may be the only way to achieve the desired result. These implants are available in various shapes and sizes to achieve the exact correction that will match your individual facial structure. Dr. Rousso is an expert in cosmetic procedures for the face, and can help you revitalize your look.
What are the Benefits?
Cheek implants provide many benefits for patients, helping to achieve more sculpted, defined contours. Benefits include the following:
- Enhanced facial appearance
- No more need for fillers–augmentation is considered permanent
- Cheeks appear fuller and higher
- Facial features are better balanced and proportionate
- Achieves a more youthful look
- Provides a boost in self-confidence
What are my Cheek Augmentation Options?
This treatment is a non-surgical injectable process that takes only about 30 minutes, with results that last 6-12 months.
During fat grafting, fat is liposuctioned from another area of the body, purified and injected into the cheeks, allowing Dr. Rousso to sculpt and define their appearance. Results last for 3 to 4 years, but eventually the fat is reabsorbed by the body.
Cheek implants may be inserted with incisions in areas of the face where they aren’t visible or are well hidden. Incisions are made in the mouth or around the eyes. Results are considered permanent.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Cheek Lift?
Loss of volume in the face causes the skin to become flat, affecting the contours of the face. Those who have lax, deflated-looking cheeks that lack definition, or hollows in the cheeks or temples, can benefit from this procedure. Ideal candidates for this procedure should meet the following requirements:
- Are generally in good health
- Do not smoke
- Have realistic expectations for what this treatment can accomplish
- Face and skull have fully matured
- Would like better facial definition
What is the Recovery Process like?
While the recovery process will vary for each individual, generally there is swelling for a day or two. Following the procedure, bandages may be applied to the incisions. If cheek implants have been placed through an incision inside the mouth, the patient may be placed on a liquid diet and given a special mouth rinse.
How much does Cheek Augmentation Cost?
Pricing for a cheek lift ranges between $5,700 to $6,800, depending on the complexity of your procedure and your aesthetic goals. The price will vary as well if you choose to have complementary procedures combined with your cheek augmentation, such as a chin augmentation, a brow lift, or eyelid surgery.
