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.
"I had my breast implant about 2 years ago. Even they were bigger than I was expecting, they look very natural. People who doesn't know I had an implant couldn't tell I had implants. Although having them to big for my body, i had a hard time to adjust my new look. Being back and forth with Dr. Widder and his staff, we finally agreed to have a local procedure to get them smaller. Most importantly they work very professionally, never had any problem with my appointments, they were always on time and friendly. The only thing I had negative experience was the new Cup size which has been sold. I highly recommend him to any of my friends who considers to have an implants. I am just not a big breasts person and didn't realize the outcome. I am glad we worked it out, they are getting smaller. :-))"- R.G. / Google / Aug 14, 2017

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.
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.
