Hollow or weak cheeks can be caused by many factors, including age, weight loss, and your natural bone structure. Fortunately, there are a variety of cheek augmentation options that can remedy sunken cheeks through the use of cheek implants, fat grafts, or dermal fillers.

Find The Solution That’s Right For You
People with weak cheekbones or sunken cheeks may benefit from cheek implants. By scheduling a consultation with either Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino, you can discuss your cheek augmentation options with an experienced plastic surgeon and find the solution that’s right for you whether it is receiving cheek implants or some other filler technique.
Enhance The Appearance
There are surgical and non-surgical methods that can effectively increase and enhance the appearance of the cheeks. All involve the insertion of some type of volumizer. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Sculptra, can be injected into the cheeks. In some cases, the stimulation of new collagen growth can produce long-lasting results. Cheek implants can be silicone, hydroxyapatite, or Gore-Tex based and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Your surgeon, makes a small incision in the upper lip or lower eyelid and places the cheek implant under the facial tissue. Fat transfer to cheeks involves removing fat from another part of the body and injecting it into the cheek. This restores some of the fat that was lost in the natural processes of aging.
See The Best Results
Your recovery and results will depend on which type of cheek augmentation technique used. Dermal fillers cause no downtime and any swelling or redness soon passes. Results typically last between 6-14 months and many Washington DC cheek implant patients pursue repeat treatments to maintain their results. Cheek implant patients may have mild bruising and swelling post operatively and will be cautioned to avoid certain foods in the immediate post operative period while their incisions heal.
There are few risks associated with dermal fillers. Cheek implants and fat grafts are surgical procedures and have a number of risks that can be minimized by a qualified plastic surgeon. These risks include infection, implant rejection, poor healing, bleeding, and adverse reaction to anesthesia.
