Cheek Augmentation

Home | Treatments | Cheek Augmentation

The loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid from your skin are the primary factors responsible for the age-related loss of midface volume. If you’re unhappy with your sunken cheeks or want to enhance your natural facial contours, you might want to consider cheek augmentation with dermal fillers.

What is Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation is a non-surgical treatment wherein facial fillers are used to enhance your midface volume and contours. The cosmetic provider injects strategically chosen fillers into your facial tissues to add volume to your cheeks, helping you achieve the desired contours. You can reverse the signs of aging and look youthful with just a few injections.

What Does Cheek Augmentation Treat?

Cheek augmentation primarily addresses the loss of volume from the midface region, including the cheeks and under-eye region. As such, cheek augmentation treats hollow cheeks and tear troughs. However, enhancing cheek volume also fills in fine lines and wrinkles, making your face look smoother and softer.

How Does Cheek Augmentation Work?

Dr. Fernandez performs cheek augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm Voluma XC and Restylane Lyft. These fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that makes your skin look soft, voluminous, and youthful. It draws and binds up to 1,000x its own weight in water, making your cheeks look full and contoured. Dr. Fernandez selects the ideal dose to enhance your facial contours while ensuring natural-looking results.

You’re the Ideal Candidate for Cheek Augmentation if You:

  • Are at least 21 years of age
  • Are in generally good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the treatment
  • Are not pregnant
  • Don’t have a history of severe allergies
  • Don’t have underlying medical conditions that preclude this treatment
  • Want to enhance the contours of your cheeks

Dr. Fernandez starts all cheek augmentation treatments with a private consultation. He discusses your goals and expectations, reviews your medical history, and examines your cheeks to determine if you’re the ideal candidate for cheek augmentation. He also selects the ideal dermal filler and dose for your specific needs.

What Happens During the Cheek Augmentation Treatment?

Dr. Fernandez curates the ideal cheek augmentation treatment plan — this involves selecting the ideal filler and dose. Your skin is cleansed and numbed with an anesthetic gel. Finally, the injector delivers the chosen fillers underneath your facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The treatment concludes in 15 to 20 minutes.

What Are the Side Effects of Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation leads to redness, swelling, minor bruising, and tenderness around the treatment sites. The side effects gradually dissipate after a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately.

What Are the Results Like?

Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers produces instant results — your cheeks look fuller and more contoured as you leave the medical spa. The results continue improving over several days as the side effects dissipate. The final results last for 6 to 12 months, depending on the filler, dose, and treatment area.
