Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Augmentation

At Artiste Plastic Surgery Cheek Augmentation is performed for the following reasons:

  • In patients who lack cheek projection due to congenital causes
  • For those wanting more prominent cheek bones
  • For those patients that have lost prominence as part of the aging process

Technique:

Cheek Implants:

Cheek implants are placed over the zygoma (cheek bone) through an intra-oral incision where prominence is desired.

Filler or Fat Grafting

In milder cases filler or fat grafting may be used to augment the cheekbone structure.

Facelift:
As part of a routine facelift, the High SMAS flap augments the cheek area.

The procedure will be illustrated in detail and you will be given a detailed instruction sheet on expected post-operative course and potential complications during your consultation with Dr Jack Zoumaras.

It is recommended that you are a stableย weight for at least 3-6 months to obtain the best possible results.

It is advised to stop smoking at least 6 weeks before and after surgery.
