What are cheek implants?
Cheek implants can dramatically change the look of your face, by giving the face a more symmetrical and contoured appearance and lifting sagging facial skin. Cheek implants are made of silicone, which can be molded and shaped according to each patient’s needs and what they hope to accomplish with their new look. These implants can last for a lifetime and are very safe. Getting cheek implants typically takes less than an hour in your doctor’s office under local or general anesthesia, and any incisions needed can be made so that they are hidden.
Are there other options for cheek augmentation?
Fat transfer is another way to give cheeks lovely definition. The fat is taken out of another part of the body and injected into the cheeks. A benefit of this procedure is that there is no need to worry about a bad reaction, as the fat comes from the patient’s own body. Another benefit is that the fat can be injected a little bit at a time, which means the doctor can place the fat right where it is needed and then easily shape it.
If you aren’t quite ready for cheek implants or fat transfer, though, an injectable filler may be the way to go. Juvéderm, for example, can add volume to the face, and you’ll see results right away. Dermal fillers are only a temporary solution, though, and you will need additional injections. The upside of fillers is that a treatment takes less than an hour and you can get right back to your activities afterwards – many people have a filler treatment done on their lunch hour.
