A strong cheek structure plays an important role in your facial appearance. High, full cheeks can provide balance and definition to your face and help you maintain youthful facial contours. Unfortunately, we lose fat and collagen in our cheek region as part of the aging process, resulting in a hollowed, gaunt, or tired appearance. Cheek augmentation is an excellent way to reverse these signs of aging while adding definition and balance to your facial features.
While this page will provide an overview of the cheek augmentation procedure, you will need to speak with Dr. Richard Ellenbogen in person in order to develop a customized facial surgery treatment plan that addresses all of your aesthetic goals. Please call 310-276-3183 today to schedule a consultation at our Beverly Hills plastic surgery office.
Am I a Candidate for Cheek Augmentation
Men and women of all ages can benefit from cheek augmentation. The procedure can be performed to address a variety of aesthetic goals, including:
- Restore cheeks to a high, full, and youthful looking position
- Restore lost facial volume in the cheek region
- Improve overall balance of facial contours
- Correct facial asymmetry
- Reduce the appearance of jowls
- Correct flatness in the mid-facial region
- Improve the appearance of a thin, gaunt face
In addition, ideal cheek augmentation candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure.
Your Cheek Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Ellenbogen performs all cheek augmentation procedures using a facial fat grafting technique because he finds this method achieves more long lasting, natural looking results than cheek implants. During your procedure, fat is harvested from a donor site on your body and injected into the cheek area.
The fat grafting method is much less invasive than cheek implants and as an additional benefit, you will enjoy body sculpting results in your donor region. Dr. Ellenbogen often recommends cheek augmentation in conjunction with chin implants to provide greater balance and definition or with a facelift for enhanced results.
