What is Cheek Augmentation?
At Beyond Beautiful Texas 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.
"Sarah was thorough, professional and kind. The atmosphere is relaxing and the med spa was spotless."- S.S. / Google / Nov 01, 2019
"I highly recommend this place! Dr. Ho is a miracle worker! I got botox for the first time and was a little nervous at first but Dr. Ho explained the whole process and assured me I would love it and he was absolutely right. It didn’t take long at all, just a few minutes and was painless! The wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes when I smile are gone and it looks flawless! I’ve always been really insecure about my lips, Dr. Ho told me about Kysse lip filler and I love it! My lips are plump and beautiful as ever! Also while you’re there, ask for Sarah to do a hydro facial! She’s amazing and the facial left my face feeling super clean and more youthful than it’s ever been! You won’t regret going here for anything cosmetic or any surgeries you’re considering! Life long customer!"- A.P. / Google / Aug 17, 2021
"I will say I was nervous and apprehensive, about going to this office, just because I had never been to a plastic surgeon etc. The FIRST THING THAT HAPPENED WAS...,they made me feel unbelievably comfortable, I felt so at ease. Dr Ho was so easy to talk to about what I wanted. He also informed me what would work best, they told me the cost and printed it so I could see it on paper. I just can’t say enough good about this place. I highly recommend Dr Ho and his staff...."- K.S. / Yelp / Aug 15, 2021
"I have been a patient of Dr. Ho’s for five years now. I can’t say enough great things about him and all of his team members. They all welcome me with a smile and assist with anything I need. I return time and time again, not only because of Dr. Ho’s amazing work with my Dysport, Restylane Kysse Lip Filler, and the latest and greatest Contour under eye/cheek filler, but because of his ethics, integrity, and overall kindness. He also makes it a priority to learn the latest and greatest technology so he can serve his patients in the best possible way. He has and continues to give me the natural look I desire. I can honestly say, with every visit I leave refreshed, confident, and happy knowing I was taken care of by a doctor and team that truly cares about their patients. I highly recommend him to all my family and friends!"- K.F. / Yelp / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr KAM and her staff! She truly is the best plastic surgeon and her and her staff are very thoughtful and caring! Not only did she do a wonderful job with my breast augmentation, but she checked on me for several days after my surgery to make sure I was doing well. I had breast cancer last year with radiation on my right breast and Dr KAM is carefully monitoring that side regularly. She has the BEST bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever had!! I, without a doubt, would recommend her to anyone!!"- H.W. / Yelp / Jun 28, 2021
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.
