Cheek augmentation is an effective, non-surgical, and minimally invasive option for those who wish to have
more volume in the cheekbone area and enhance their overall facial contour and balance. Because the cheek
area is augmented with an injectable dermal filler, the results are more natural, require little
down-time, and have a low incidence of side-effects. Additionally, because no general anesthesia is
required the client may control her/his outcome by looking in a handheld mirror and providing feedback to
Dr. Vafa throughout the procedure.
Traditional cheek implants are surgical, invasive procedures. Either silicone or fat is implanted into the cheekbone area.
Surgical implants are done under general anesthesia with an incision made inside the mouth, through which the implant is inserted. The recovery can be painful and the outcome may not always be as desired.
Dr. Vafa prefers to use either the Radiesse or Juvederm dermal fillers. Both fillers are FDA approved, and hypoallergenic. Juvederm has the benefit of being a reversible filler. During your free initial consultation, Dr. Vafa will determine which filler is ideal for you and your desired results.
