    Cheek Augmentation

    What is cheek augmentation?

    The cheeks play an important role in defining an attractive face, and well-defined cheek bones have long been recognised as a hallmark of beauty. Sufficient volume of the cheek contour is essential to a youthful appearance. As people age, the fat pads and soft tissue that give cheeks their fullness, begin to descend and bone thinning begins, creating a flat visage. In addition the supportive tissue beneath the skin begins to erode, hastening the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

    A weak cheek structure can make the face appear drawn and gaunt. It may also give the appearance of a 'fleshy' lower face.

    Aesthetic procedures offer various ways to restore a more youthful appearance to the cheeks, like cheek and mid face lift and cheek augmentation by mean of injectables or implants.   

    When considering cheek augmentation it is essential to consider the overall structure of the face (not look at the cheeks alone as a standalone entity) and how the cheeks can be enhanced to blend in and balance with the neighbouring structures as well as identifying any naturally occurring asymmetries.

    Cheek augmentation is a procedure to enhance the cheek volume and improve contour by means of injectables that provide temporary results or cheek implants that offer a more permanent solution.

    Cheek implants fill out the mid face with precision and permanence and is most suitable for those who are looking for long term results.
