What is Cheek Augmentation?

At Beyond Beautiful in Plano, TX, board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho performs a variety of cosmetic and surgical procedures using facial implants. One of these types of surgery is for the cheeks. Cheek augmentation, commonly referred to as “cheek implants,” helps to enhance the face, restore youthfulness, and restore sunken cheeks, which is longer lasting than fillers. Placement of cheek implants is typically an outpatient procedure, performed under general anesthesia, and is ideal for someone who wants to add fullness. A variety of facial implants are available in an array of sizes, shapes, and materials, which will be discussed during a consultation with Dr. Ho to provide the best-possible look.

What Are The Benefits Of Cheek Implants?

Cheek implants in Plano, TX at Beyond Beautiful offer subtle, yet dramatic improvements to your look with a number of excellent benefits, including:

  • Creating higher, fuller, and more defined cheeks
  • Balancing facial harmony
  • Addressing sunken cheeks, or areas with volume loss
  • Offering fully customizable treatment options
  • Achieving permanent results
  • Implants are easy to remove at any time
  • Little to no scarring
  • Generally considered a very safe procedure

Is Cheek Augmentation Right for Me?

The best candidates for cheek implant surgery:

  • Have naturally flat cheeks
  • Have flat cheeks as a result of aging
  • Have flat cheeks as a result of significant weight loss
  • Desire a fuller cheek look
  • Desire a longer-term solution as compared to facial fillers

How Is Cheek Augmentation Performed?

Since this is an outpatient surgery, patients will be under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. An incision will be carefully made in the mouth, which will be placed between the cheek and upper gums. A specially made pocket will be created over the cheekbone after the soft cheek tissue has been properly elevated. Then, the plastic surgeon will insert the medical-grade plastic implant, which will be done for both cheeks. Afterwards, the incisions will be stitched up. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete. 

What Results Can I Expect from Cheek Augmentation?

After cheek implants, a patient should expect some level of swelling and numbness in the treatment area. Though rare, some patients may experience bruising. Normal activities, such as going to work, can usually be resumed within a week. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first few weeks after surgery. As the swelling resolves over time, a patient can expect to see the full benefits of the surgery over the following few months. Cheek implants have a strong safety record since they are made with the highest quality materials. While cheek implants provide long-term benefits, a patient’s face will change due to the aging process, which could impact the look of the implants over time.

Cheek Augmentation FAQ

What type of cheek implant is right for me?

When selecting the correct type of implant for your cheeks, Dr. Ho will take into account your unique facial features and aesthetic goals. Using his expertise and years of experience, he can suggest a variety of implants that will help you achieve the best outcome, whether you want to accentuate your cheeks or restore age-related volume loss. During your consultation, Dr. Ho will go over the different options available and the effect they can achieve.

What if my face is asymmetrical?

Cheek augmentation can be very effective in addressing facial asymmetry. Contrary to what most people believe, facial asymmetry (one side is slightly different than the other) is actually quite common. Dr. Ho can address asymmetry by a number of methods, such as placing a cheek implant to "raise" one cheek to match the other. If asymmetry is a concern, please feel free to bring it up with Dr. Ho during your consultation.

Can I have fat grafting performed to fill in my cheeks?

Yes, absolutely. Dr. Ho offers cutting-edge fat transfer procedures that can be used to either accentuate the cheeks or replenish areas of volume loss. Using your body's own fat can rejuvenate and enhance your look while offering a more natural alternative to synthetic implants.
