Full looking cheeks and high cheekbones provide a youthful appearance. If you would like to increase the volume of your cheeks, you may consider cheek augmentation surgery. There are three ways to augment the cheeks. One is by inserting implants on the cheekbones to enhance the cheeks’ projection. The other technique is by inserting implants just under the skin to achieve fuller cheeks. A combined implant is meant to augment the cheekbones and the cheeks. The surgery may take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.
You are a good candidate for cheek augmentation if:
- You are over 18 and do not have ideal cheek shape.
- Your cheeks are too flat or hollow.
- You have lost cheek volume due to ageing.
- You are physically healthy & you have realistic expectations.
Like other major cosmetic surgeries, cheek augmentation begins with the administration of an anaesthesia. Your surgeon will then make incisions under the eyes or inside the mouth. A very common material used in cheek augmentation is silicone.
Aside from silicone, your surgeon may use your own fat which could be taken from your hips or buttock. Fillers and injectables are also available. The recovery period for a cheek augmentation surgery is 7 to 10 days. You will temporarily experience swelling, bruising, and numbness during the healing process.
