Many people in the Chico, CA area would like to add contour and volume to their cheeks. Luckily, cheek augmentation is a straightforward procedure that can help you accomplish this. Whether you have always wanted a different shape or have lost volume with age, cheek implants can help. They can add some lift to your face if it has started to sag over time.
What is Cheek Augmentation?
There are actually several options for cheek augmentation out there. You can use injectable fillers or a fat transfer to fill out your face. The most common form of augmentation, however, involves cheek implants.
When it comes to implants for the cheeks, there are many different options. This is great news because it allows you to really customize your look. These implants can be made from different types of material. Silicone implants are common and can be removed at a later date if necessary. Another common material is hydroxyapatite.
Who is a Good Candidate for Cheek Augmentation?
This is a great option for those who are self-conscious about their look due to their cheeks. It is important to have this surgery done for yourself and not to please someone else. While this procedure can be beneficial to a wide range of both men and women, there are certain things that will make you a better candidate. These include:
- Being at a stable weight
- Being in overall good health
- Being a non-smoker
- Having realistic expectations regarding the procedure and results
- Having a positive outlook
- Having cheeks that are saggy, flat, or thin
- Being bothered by how your cheeks look
What to Expect with Cheek Augmentation Surgery
Many people have this surgery done in conjunction with other procedures. During cheek augmentation, a small pocket will be formed inside of the cheek to place the implant. This will then be closed. When using implants, the results will be relatively permanent. It is important to note that natural aging can still cause facial changes over time.
