Cheek Augmentation Overview
Cheek augmentation helps sunken cheeks and facial hollows.
- Cheek implant surgery improves facial contours and restores lost volume. A wide variety of facial implants are currently available for the enhancement of cheeks. Cheek implants vary widely not only in shape and style, but also in terms of the materials from which they are fabricated.
- Cheek implant materials include Alloderm and Gore-tex (yup, the same stuff as your winter parka).
- Nearly 9,000 cheek implant procedures were performed last year, a 16% decline from 2000.
- Some plastic surgeons prefer to use injectable fillers or structural fat grafting, or fat transfer to enhance cheeks and facial features.
