what is Cheek Augmentation?

Sunken or hollow cheeks can make you seem much older than you actually are, and no one wishes to be mistaken for being older than their true age. At Mesbahi Plastic Surgery, seasoned plastic surgeon Dr. Alex Mesbahi offers nonsurgical cheek augmentation to restore full facial contours. Mid-face augmentation is done using temporary injectable dermal fillers. We also offer a variety of injectables that can help you attain your desired look. In your initial consult, Dr. Mesbahi can go over all of your options and determine which filler will best fit your concerns and goals. Call our office in McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., or Beverly Hills, CA to schedule a consultation and find out how nonsurgical cheek augmentation can help you attain a younger, fuller-looking face.

who is a Candidate for cheek augmentation?

The best candidates for nonsurgical cheek augmentation are women and men who:

  • Would like more volume in their cheeks
  • Have lost volume in their cheeks with age
  • Have naturally hollow or flat cheeks
  • Have lost a lot of weight, causing sagging cheeks
  • Have asymmetry in their cheeks caused by genetics, a physical condition, or a trauma

Dermal filler injections can be a good option for patients who want to avoid the time and expense of surgical implants. Since dermal fillers create temporary results, it can also be used to get a clearer idea of the amount of volume and lift they need before committing to surgical cheek augmentation. 

cheek augmentation Technique

Prior to your nonsurgical cheek augmentation, Dr. Mesbahi will perform a detailed examination to decide on a treatment plan that is best for your unique facial structure. In your consultation, you will decide on the type of filler you'd prefer and the areas you'd like to address. 

Dermal fillers can be done at our McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., or Beverly Hills, CA office as an outpatient treatment in about 20 – 30 minutes. For the procedure, the injection sites will be cleaned and marked along the mid-face. Then, the dermal filler will be injected into the cheeks and massaged to create an even fullness. You will be able to leave right after the treatment and continue your normal activities.

after your treatment

After dermal filler injections in the cheeks, the mid-face may feel sore or tender with mild swelling for around 3 – 5 days. Cold packs and over-the-counter pain relievers may be used to ease any discomfort. Optimal results are typically seen in 10 – 14 days. Continuous treatments will be necessary since dermal fillers are a short-term option. Be sure to talk with Dr. Mesbahi during your initial consultation about how often he thinks you should return for touch-ups.
