Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Enhancement

The goal of cheek augmentation is to add volume or lift to the cheeks. Valid surgical options for enhancing the cheeks are fat grafting or cheek implants.

Cheek augmentation candidates

Cheek augmentation is a highly individualized procedure. It can be a life-changing procedure for patients who are self-conscious about their cheeks. This procedure should be done for yourself, not for someone else or to conform with any sort of ideal image.

In general, you may be a good cheek augmentation candidate if:

  • You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are a nonsmoker
  • You are bothered by the appearance of your cheeks
  • You have cheeks that are too flat, thin or saggy

If you're considering surgery, spend some time reviewing cheek augmentation photos and learning about what to expect during recovery. Preparation ahead of time helps patients have reasonable expectations and a smoother recovery.
