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.

Your cheek augmentation consultation

During your cheek augmentation consultation be prepared to discuss:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug use
  • Previous surgeries

Your plastic surgeon will also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Examine your face
  • Take photographs
  • Discuss your options and recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of cheek augmentation surgery and any risks or potential complications

The success and safety of your cheek augmentation procedure depends very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You'll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle.

Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon questions. It's very important to understand all aspects of your cheek augmentation. To help, we have prepared a checklist of questions to ask your plastic surgeon that you can take with you to your consultation.

It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
