Full and defined cheeks are a sign of youth and beauty, but over time the face loses fat and the cheeks become flat and drooping, giving way to a sunken appearance.
Although some are born with high cheekbones in a natural way, achieving the look of sculpted cheeks can be achieved through non-surgical and surgical treatments that focus on restoring fatness, volume and definition.
Cheek augmentation can add shape and volume to your cheeks, improving your overall facial appearance. As you get older, your face loses some of its fullness and the skin tends to give way. The cheek augmentation surgery restores fullness for a more youthful appearance.
Along with fat grafting, cheek implants are another option to restore youth more permanently. Silicone implants, ideal for someone who wants to add a lot of volume instead of a slight increase, add fullness and create a lifting effect.
Cheek implants are a permanent solution for cheeks that have been deflated with age or are hollowed out.
Good candidates for cheek augmentation include physically healthy men and women who have realistic expectations and are interested in making their cheekbones look more prominent.
Considerable swelling may occur due to tissue trauma, especially if screws are used to fix the implant to the cheekbone. Your cheeks will look very elevated for a while, and the definition you're looking for may not be apparent for a few months.
The results are immediate, although you may think that the implants are too large at first because of the swelling. It may take a few months for more refined results to emerge.
