2) How is cheek augmentation performed?
There are surgical and non-surgical methods that can effectively increase and enhance the appearance of your cheeks. All involve the insertion of padding. Dermal fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Perlane) are injected into the cheeks.
The stimulation of new collagen growth can produce long-lasting results. Cheek implants are silicone based and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Dr. Feledy makes a small incision in the upper lip or lower eyelid and places the cheek implant under the facial tissue.
Fat transfer to cheeks means the removal of fat from one part of the body and injecting it into the cheek. This restores some of the fat that was lost in the natural processes of aging.

How fast you will recover depends on the type of cheek augmentation technique used. Dermal fillers cause no downtime and any swelling or redness soon passes. The result last between six and 14 months with patients continuing with treatments to maintain their “new” cheeks.
