Cheek augmentation surgery has improved in recent years and offers natural results for men and women who want to enhance their facial structure. The procedure is effective at filling in sunken cheeks to contour the face for a rounder appearance, making it a popular surgery that is conducted an average of 9,000 times each year. Cheek implant products that are used include Alloderm and Gore-tex for rigid or flexible materials that alter the face shape. The implant integrates with the bone tissue over time to create a natural appearance.

The average cost of cheek augmentation surgery is $2,000 to $3,000 with additional costs that often cover x-rays, lab fees, and blood tests. Many people choose to undergo the surgery to attain a more youthful face with instant cheekbones that create more angles on the face. This restores lost volume that can occur due to age while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles or sagging that has developed on the skin. Filling in the cheeks allows other areas of the face to be pulled up to reduce the downturn of the mouth and eliminate the appearance of nasolabial folds.

Candidates for the procedure are individuals who have poorly defined cheeks or suffer from loss of cheek tissue. Patients must be in good health and have a stable weight to be a candidate for the surgery.

How Does Cheek Augmentation Surgery Work?

During the treatment, local or general anesthesia will be administered to the patient. Small incisions are made inside of the mouth or on the lower eyelids to insert each implant. The incisions may be made in other locations if other surgeries are performed at the same time. The plastic surgeon will form small pockets in the cheek tissue where the implants will be placed. The area where the implants are inserted will then be sculpted by the physician before sutures are used to close the incisions.

Recovery time requires that patients rest for a week following the surgery without returning to work or exercising. Bruising and swelling can be expected on the face and can make it difficult to chew, yawn, or bite. The neck and head should be elevated 24 hours a day to prevent the implant from moving as the cheeks begin to heal. Pain medication may also be prescribed to aid the healing process and reduce the amount of discomfort that is experienced.
