Benefits of Cheek Augmentation
While your cheeks may seem like just one part of your face, the shape and size of your cheeks have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your eyes, smile, nose, and chin. Your cheeks can also make you appear more masculine or feminine. By refining this feature, you can dramatically change your overall look. Your cheek augmentation can be part of a more comprehensive treatment including a brow lift, rhinoplasty, facelift, or other procedures.
Dr. Barone will recommend a treatment plan based on your cosmetic goals and facial structure.
Dr. Barone provides cheek implants, which come in a variety of textures, shapes, and sizes. On the day of your surgery, Dr. Barone will make small incisions either within your mouth or in your lower eyelids. If you are undergoing other facial procedures on the same day, she may be able to use the incisions created during those procedures to access your cheek tissue, minimizing scarring. After she makes your incisions, Dr. Barone will create pockets for the implants and set them in place. She will then use sutures to close your incisions, completing your surgery.
Dr. Barone can also use fat injections to augment your cheeks. This process involves using liposuction to remove excess fat from other areas of the body. The fat is purified and injected into your face for a fuller, more contoured look. Fat Injections are permanent, but additional treatments may be needed to maintain the volume that you desire.
Dr. Barone can perform both of these procedures using local anesthesia to maintain your comfort.
Cheek Augmentation Candidates
Candidates for cheek augmentation should be in good overall health. Patients wishing to have cheek implants placed should not be allergic to silicone. Meanwhile, patients who wish to use fat grafting to augment their cheeks should have an area of the body they wish to treat with liposuction. Perhaps most importantly, transgender liposuction patients should have goals for achieving a more feminine or masculine appearance that can be achieved by refining the contours of the cheeks. You and Dr. Barone will have an in-depth consultation to determine if cheek augmentation is the best way to help you achieve the appearance you desire.
