The goal of cheek augmentation is to add volume or lift to the cheeks. Some people are bothered by their cheeks losing volume, or even sagging, with age. Others never develop the desired volume in their cheeks and are bothered by cheeks that may be considered flat or thin.
Valid surgical options for augmenting and enhancing the cheeks are fat grafting/transfer (where a patient’s own fat is used) or the use of solid cheek implants. A nonsurgical option is the use of injectable fillers to enhance the cheeks, which is covered on the dermal fillers page.
Cheek Implant Incision
A cheek augmentation requires different incisions based on the technique used. If fat transfer is used to enhance your cheeks, you will likely have a small incision near the area of fat that is harvested and small incisions near your cheeks. These incisions usually measure just several millimeters in length. If solid cheek implants are used, then the incision is based on your surgeon’s preferred approach. Some plastic surgeons insert cheek implants through an incision inside the mouth, whereas other plastic surgeons perform the operation through an incision under your eyelid.
Determining the Best Incision Location for a Cheek Implant
For many surgeries, the incision location that is chosen can have an impact on the results of the procedure. In regards to cheek implants, there are a variety of options to choose from, and each comes with its own unique benefits.
The location of your incision will be discussed during your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. In order to ensure your satisfaction with the results of your procedure, your surgeon will help you determine which incision is best for you based on your individual needs and goals.
The cheek augmentation incision can be made inside the lower eyelid or inside the upper lip, or a pre-existing incision can be used if you are having multiple procedures.
