Cheek augmentation is performed to improve the contours and overall size of the cheeks. Also known as malar augmentation, this procedure can be used to highlight your cheekbones or fill in sunken cheeks.
It can be used to crease subtle or dramatic differences in your facial appearance, depending on the techniques used by the surgeon. Cheek augmentation options include synthetic implants, injectable fillers or natural tissue grafts.
This procedure is intended for people who have poorly defined cheeks, which may appear hollow or sagging as a result of the loss of cheek tissue, usually due to heredity or aging. It is also an option for patients with loss of tissue in the cheekbone area due to trauma or congenital deformities.
Cheek augmentation procedures usually take 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete.
