What is a Cheek Augmentation?

Regular aging and weight loss can result in more hollow or flat-looking cheeks. For patients looking for more volume in their mid-face, cheek augmentation may be beneficial. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reo Pugao offers free cheek augmentation consultations at SkinSational MedSpa in El Paso, TX to help patients understand how cheek augmentation could help them achieve their aesthetic goals. Mid-face augmentation can be performed using either nonsurgical injectable dermal fillers or surgically placed silicone cheek implants. At your consultation, Dr. Pugao can discuss the pros and cons of both choices in greater detail and decide which will best match your needs and goals. Call our El Paso, TX office to schedule a consultation, and learn how cheek augmentation can help you attain a fuller, younger-looking face.

How is a Cheek Augmentation Performed?

Ideal candidates for cheek augmentation are in good general health and desire more volume in their mid-face. During your consultation, Dr. Pugao will perform a detailed examination to create a customized treatment plan that is ideal for your unique facial structure. Cheek augmentation surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia. When you are prepped, thin incisions are created inside your mouth through the upper gums and a pocket will be made over the cheekbones. Then, the implants will be placed and the incisions will be sutured. Cheek augmentation surgery typically lasts around an hour, and you will be allowed to go home with a family member or friend to start your recovery at home. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and tightness for about 1 – 2 weeks after your surgery. Optimal healing is usually achieved in around two months. 

Cheek Augmentation FAQ

How much does cheek augmentation cost?

The costs for a cheek augmentation procedure will vary depending on the type of augmentation you decide on with Dr. Pugao. During your consultation, Dr. Pugao will examine you, listen to your goals, and then work with you to create a cheek augmentation plan that's right for you. Once your plan is complete, we can estimate your costs. At SkinSational MedSpa, we take a variety of payment methods and can help you find low-interest financing for your procedure.

What type of dermal fillers do you use for cheek augmentation injections?

For cheek augmentation using dermal fillers, Dr. Pugao has seen reliable, consistent results with hyaluronic acid fillers that can enhance the cheeks to replace lost volume and fill sunken, hollow areas. The results can be beautiful, but they are temporary, with most patients seeing their results last about 12 months.

What if I have facial asymmetry?

Facial asymmetry or one side of your face is different than the other, is very common. If asymmetry is a concern, tell Dr. Pugao during your consultation so he can assess your options. Dr. Pugao can vary the volume or height of your cheekbones to create a more harmonious balance to your facial symmetry.

Can I have a facial fat transfer to fill in my cheeks?

Yes, you can. Dr. Pugao offers facial fat grafting that uses your own fat to restore lost facial volume and enhance the appearance of the cheeks. A facial fat transfer can present less risk since it is your body's fat, and the results can feel softer and more natural.
