Cheek Augmentation(Cheek Implants, High Cheek Bones)

A cheek augmentation is perfect for you if you want a more striking, better proportioned face.

That’s because it strengthens your profile by making high and full cheekbones. The procedure also gives you more projection laterally and frontally, giving you a more youthful appearance.

The amazing thing about a cheek augmentation is that even though the change to your face is relatively small, it has an incredible impact on your appearance.

There are several different procedures to undertake a cheek augmentation, and when you talk with us we will talk you through the differences. And if you’re having another procedure done it is often an excellent opportunity to combine it with a cheek augmentation.

Your Consultation

There are plenty of ways to perform your cheek augmentation, and when you schedule yours we will show you the range of options. Cheek augmentation can also be done in combination with other selected procedures such as skin wrinkle fillers for best results.

Read on to find out more about the different options:

1-Soft touch treatment: This is by far the simplest option. We use injectable dermal fillers, both temporary and permanent. These are injected with a fine needle in the comfort of our office with or without local anaesthetics.

While this will give you an immediate result, it only lasts for 3-6 months. After this you will need another injection. However, over time the effect may begin to last longer, sometimes up to 8 months. Recently, longer lasting temporary skin wrinkle fillers have come on the market and may give you a result for up to 3 years.

The goal is to achieve a balance between your upper and lower lips, while maintaining the appearance of natural fullness.

This treatment is provided at the same day of consultation in the office and may require local anaesthetics.
2-Surgical procedure: If you want a permanent solution then it’s best to go for the surgical option.

This is done in a hospital under either a local or general anaesthetic and it only takes around 60 minutes.

This procedure is quite simple and safe. It uses your own fatty tissue or an implant and will give you a long lasting refinement to the areas of your mid-face.

If we use your own tissue there is no scar. If we use an implant there will be a small 3-4 cm scar inside your mouth. This will heal, and the stitches will dissolve on their own.

For help deciding which treatment is best for you, book your consultation now and discuss your options with your surgeon.

After Your Surgery

Your surgery is only a day procedure so there is no overnight stay.

The only thing to be aware of is to not have warm fluids or hot meals for 24 hours.

Otherwise your swelling only lasts 1-2 weeks and can be reduced simply by keeping your head elevated.

Getting you back to work and normal activities

You will need to rest for 2-3 days and then build up with light duties for the next week.

You will be back into normal activities in 10-14 days time.
