What is Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation is a procedure designed to enhance the cheekbones. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis with intravenous sedation.  Cheek augmentation can be achieved using fat transfer in which excess fat is transferred from another portion of the body to the cheek area in order to produce a full, plump look and balance the appearance of the face. Dr. Buckingham will go over all of the available options for cheek augmentation during the consultation appointment.

What can a Cheek Augmentation Procedure do for me?

Patients may consider cheek augmentation for a variety of reasons. Some patients may have been born with cheeks that appear flat or otherwise lack definition, or the cheeks may have lost definition with age.

In other cases, a traumatic event may have occurred. Whatever the reason may be, Dr. Buckingham will be there to help walk his patients through the procedure and what to expect based on their goals and desires. A facial fat transfer process is a minimally invasive procedure that can help regain the soft contours of the face. The fat is chosen from a fattier body part like the flanks or abdomen and then transferred to the face.

One of the number one reasons people consider cheek augmentation is to regain a more youthful appearance. As people age, they loose elasticity in their skin and gravity begins to pull on the skin, causing it to sag. Cheek augmentation can help give the patient a plumper, more youthful look with the appearance of higher, more defined cheekbones. Sometimes, the cheek area is the final piece to the puzzle on giving the face a more youthful and balanced appearance.

Achieving Successful Results

Dr. Buckingham strongly believes that a successful cosmetic surgery procedure is dependent upon a strong relationship between the patient, the surgeon, and the surgeon’s staff. By having everyone involved in the overall procedure on the same page every step of the way, there is greater chance for a successful facial plastic surgery result. Dr. Buckingham will be sure to stay updated on your recovery process with multiple follow-up appointments to ensure that your recovery and healing go as smoothly as possible.
