Augment Your Cheeks:
Fat Transfer or Implants

Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the prominence and definition of the cheekbones. This technique aims to improve facial symmetry and restore a youthful appearance by adding volume to the cheeks. Two primary methods are commonly used for cheek augmentation: fat grafting and implants.

Cheek Augmentation Methods

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting involves the removal of excess fat from one part of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and then purifying and re-injecting it into the cheeks. This method is popular for its natural look and feel, as it uses the patient’s own tissue. Fat grafting offers the advantage of dual benefits – contouring through fat removal and augmentation through fat transfer.

Cheek Implants

Cheek implants involve inserting solid silicone implants into the cheeks. This method is for individuals seeking a more immediate and dramatic enhancement. During cheek augmentation surgery in Minneapolis, the surgeon inserts the implant into the targeted areas through small incisions. Cheek implants come in various shapes and sizes, allowing customization to meet the patient’s specific facial structure.

Cheek Augmentation FAQs

How long does cheek augmentation last?

The longevity of cheek augmentation results can vary depending on the technique used and individual factors. Fat grafting results may be partially absorbed by the body over time, necessitating touch-up procedures. Cheek implants, however, provide more permanent results and may last for over a decade, but the implant may eventually have to be replaced.

Is cheek augmentation a painful procedure?

Some patients who have undergone cheek augmentation surgery in Minneapolis may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising after cheek augmentation, but this can typically be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. The level of discomfort varies among individuals and depends on the chosen technique.

What is the recovery like after cheek augmentation?

Recovery time can vary but generally involves several days of swelling and bruising. Most patients can resume their regular activities within a week or two, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a few weeks. Your surgeon will provide detailed post-operative care instructions.

Are there any risks or complications associated with cheek augmentation?

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, scarring, or asymmetry. However, these risks are minimized when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Singh.
