Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Augmentation

As our faces age with time, there tends to be a gradual descent of the skin and deeper soft tissues. This drooping can affect the appearance of the cheeks, causing a hollow, tired look. On occasion, some patients have little aging effects, but are just not satisfied with the projection of their cheekbones. Strong cheek bones, which can be achieved at Criswell and Criswell Plastic Surgery with cheek augmentation, have traditionally been associated with youth and beauty.

Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation

For patients who are not ready to undergo surgery, we offer non-surgical cheek augmentation at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery in Charlotte, North Carolina. Our skilled plastic surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures to restore volume to the cheeks, give the midface a lift, and lessen the appearance of nasolabial folds (from the nose to the lip corners).

Cheek Augmentation with Injectable Fillers

Well-defined cheeks improve the profile, help create a youthful appearance, and add balance to the face. While some patients have never had well-contoured cheeks, others have lost volume with aging. Fortunately, the cheeks can be enhanced with non-surgical treatments with the use of advanced injectable fillers.

Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, Voluma, and Radiesse, can be used effectively to sculpt and add volume to the cheeks with precise injections. This is a safe, minimally invasive method to attain fuller, more youthful looking cheeks.

There is virtually no downtime with injectable filler cheek augmentation. Patients can typically return to work immediately after treatment.

Fillers are injected under the skin in targeted areas using very fine needles. They plump up the skin from underneath, fill in lines and wrinkles, and add volume to augment facial features, including cheeks. In a cheek augmentation procedure, filler can be injected above the cheekbones for a more chiseled appearance, or into the soft tissue of the cheeks to lift and correct an aging or sunken appearance.

Cheek Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Fat harvested with liposuction from areas of the patient’s body, such as the abdomen or love handles, can be purified and then injected in the cheeks for enhancement with natural, long-lasting results. This is an excellent way to augment the cheekbones and correct facial asymmetry.

In a fat transfer procedure, our surgeons can achieve subtle, natural looking improvement to the cheeks and the midface region. We perform fat transfer cheek augmentation to:

  • Define and contour the cheeks and the face
  • Correct facial asymmetries and create a more balanced profile
  • Rejuvenate facial appearance by countering the signs of aging that pull the face downward

Attractive, well-defined cheekbones are an important element of facial beauty. Whether you have lost facial volume with aging, or nature failed to give you the cheeks you wanted to begin with, our surgeons at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery can perform a cheek augmentation procedure to help you achieve a more attractive, youthful, and balanced facial profile.
