Cheek Augmentation

Cheek augmentation can be achieved using silicone implants, placed through an incision in the mouth, which cost $4000-$5000 depending on the surgeon and your location. As Dr. Chaboki stated, fillers such as Radiesse can be used or more permanent correction injecting the patient's own fat.

Silicone Implant for Cheek augmentation

Malar augmentation for facial rejuvenation is a good option for adding volume in the midface area. Malar enhancement via implants are an alternative to facial fillers, such as Radiesse, Sculptra, fat injection, or hyaluronic acid filler. Cheek implants are made of silicone, and inserted via a small incision inside the mouth for cheek augmentation. The implant itself only costs a couple hundred dollars, while the surgical fee varies based on region, from approximately $3000 to $5000.

How Mucha Does Cheek Augmentation Cost

Treatment of facial aging changes with fat grafting must  be carefully individualized to match each patient's aesthetic needs and desires.  I always examine and assess how each aesthetic area or 'unit' of the face contributes to an individual's overall appearance: the brows and eyelids, the cheeks or 'midface', the lower face and chin, and the neck. An individualized surgical plan is then developed which addresses each patient's specific concerns and needs.

Therefore, the price of a facial fat grafting will depend on exactly what each person needs and the time required to perform surgery. To select a plastic surgeon, take your time researching , visiting websites, view many, many before and after photos and speak to former patients.

Beware of doctors who discount their fees. Discounting the value of professional services, especially surgery, is not good marketing - it is a sign of desperation. The best plastic surgeons are still busy in this contracting economy, and they are not discounting their fees. At the same time, the most expensive surgeon is not necessarily the most talented, so as a consumer you still have to research this carefully. There is much more to consider than just the price in dollars that you pay: is your surgeon actually listening to you, do they truly understand the appearance that you hope to achieve, do you feel that he or she will be easily available and attentive once the surgery has been performed. If you don't have a good feeling, don't stick around to 'save money', go somewhere else.
