Cheek augmentation is popular among individuals who have lost volume in their cheeks due to aging or those with naturally flat or sunken cheeks. Dr. Frank Lalezar performs personalized cheek augmentation in NYC using dermal fillers, autologous fat injections, or silicone implants to elevate your facial contours.
Define & Lift Sunken Cheeks
Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the cheeks. The procedure involves numerous techniques, such as fillers, fat injections, or implants, to make the cheeks look fuller and more youthful. Cheek augmentation can help you reverse age-related loss of facial volume, elevate your natural facial contours, and soften the wrinkles and creases around the cheeks and mouth.
The Goals of Cheek Augmentation:
- Enhancing facial contours and proportions
- Improving the appearance of sunken or flat cheeks
- Adding volume to the mid-face area
- Softening wrinkles and lines around the cheeks and mouth
- Restoring facial volume loss due to age
Dr. Lalezar’s Cheek Augmentation Technique
Dr. Lalezar is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon specializing in cutting-edge cheek augmentation techniques. He understands that everyone has unique expectations, so he curates personalized treatment plans based on your needs. He evaluates your cheeks, measures the degree of volume loss, discusses your goals, and determines if you need dermal fillers, fat injections, silicone implants, or a combination of these methods.
Dermal fillers are a popular choice for cheek augmentation in NYC. They are administered quickly and have minimal downtime. The procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid-based filler into the cheeks using a fine needle. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring gel that binds water molecules and makes your cheeks look fuller and suppler. Dermal fillers are non-surgical, require no downtime, and the results are immediate.
Fat grafting involves taking fat from another area of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, and injecting it into the cheeks to add volume. The procedure is typically performed under general or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation and takes an hour or two. The surgeon uses liposuction to harvest excess fat cells, purify them, and inject them into the cheeks. The results look completely natural.
Silicone implants are another option for cheek augmentation, but they are less commonly used. Implant-based cheek augmentation involves making an incision in the cheek and inserting the silicone implant. The incision is typically made inside the mouth or lower eyelid so there are no visible scars. Silicone implants can last for several years, but they may need to be replaced if they become damaged or shift position.
