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

CHEEK AUGMENTATION FAQs
Cheek augmentation is an umbrella term for any procedure that fills out cheeks to improve facial contours and restore lost volume. It can also restore facial symmetry after reconstructive surgery for cancer or a cheekbone fracture.
It’s usually done with dermal fillers, other options may include cheek implants or facial fat transfer.
Injectable fillers aren’t permanent, but they can add volume to the cheek area quickly, at less expense than cosmetic surgery, with natural-looking results. They do require maintenance appointments, if you want to keep your results. Popular dermal fillers that can give you fuller cheeks and define your cheekbones include:
- Juvéderm Voluma, a hyaluronic acid–based filler that lifts and contours cheeks for up to two years
- Restylane Lyft, also a hyaluronic acid–based filler that augments cheeks for up to 12 months
- Radiesse, made of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which can last up to a year (sometimes longer, because it stimulates collagen production)
- Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) filler, which also stimulates collagen production, replacing lost facial volume for up to two years*
Fillers can instantly improve facial volume loss, and require only a simple injection session. Results can last up to two years. They do not change the structure of the face, but they can rejuvenate and restore youth to the cheek area without surgery. Patients love that there is very little downtime involved with fillers. Because of this, the treatment fits well into even the busiest schedules.*
Bleeding, bruising, swelling, infection and asymmetry that usually resolves on its own within three weeks are the most common side effects from cheek augmentation.
*Disclaimer: Any specific claims or permanence length of results vary for each patient and are not guaranteed. Only a professional can determine what your specific treatment plan should be.
