Cheek Augmentation Surgery
Hallow or weak cheeks can be created by many factors, including age 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. Dr. Feledy offers several different cheek augmentation techniques at his Washington DC, Chevy Chase plastic surgery clinics.
Cheek Augmentation FAQs
Who should consider cheek augmentation?
How is cheek augmentation performed?
Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Perlane, can be injected into the cheeks. In some cases, the stimulation of new collagen growth can produce long-lasting results.
Cheek implants are silicone based and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Dr. Feledy 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.
What happens after cheek augmentation?
Dermal fillers cause no downtime and any swelling or redness soon passes. Results typically last between 6-14 months and many patients pursue repeat treatments to maintain their results.
