About Cheek Augmentation

At Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center in Vienna, VA, Dr. Shlomo Widder offers cheek augmentation to enhance deflated or flat cheeks. Over time, the natural aging process, gravity, and weight fluctuation can cause the cheeks to fall or sag. If you have lost volume in your cheeks, then cheek augmentation can provide you with significant improvement. By using flexible silicone implants, this procedure can add volume and definition to your facial structure. Dr. Widder is a highly-skilled, board-certified Plastic Surgeon who will partner with you to develop an optimal treatment plan that suits your facial profile and cosmetic desires. The results will produce a fuller, younger looking contour that you will love.

Best Candidates

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

  • Overall good health and are non-smokers.
  • Hollow cheeks.
  • Droopy/loose cheeks.
  • Lack of facial definition.

What to Expect

During your consultation, the plastic surgeon will examine your cheeks and discuss with the best size, shape, and placement for the implant. Patients will be given a local anesthetic prior to the procedure to help alleviate discomfort and pain. During surgery, the implants will be placed in the cheeks through a “pocket” created in the cheekbone. Once the implant is securely in place, the incision(s) will be closed.

Other Considerations

Following cheek augmentation surgery, patients should expect an extended recovery process, but you should see a visible improvement immediately. Typically, patients experience bruising and swelling in their cheeks for approximately 1-2 weeks. The cheeks will also feel tight and stiff. While a full recovery can take up to 2 months, patients can return to their regular routines within 7-10 days after the procedure. Exercising can be resumed after 3-4 weeks.

Look and Feel Younger

Cheek augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery that can enhance the overall appearance of your face. Cheek implants can add lift and contour to the cheeks, which creates a more youthful appearance. This helps to diminish wrinkles and provide you with softer, smoother skin.
