The cheeks are bony structures located mid-face and have several important aesthetic and physiological functions.

 

The cheeks function to:

 

  •      Support muscle and facial skin
  •      Soften a smile
  •      Highlight the eyes
  •      Prevent facial skin sagging
  •      Delay the development of wrinkles and facial folds

 

Cosmetic cheek surgery (cheek augmentation) is a surgical procedure that involves accentuating the curves of the cheeks by various means.

 

Due to the texture and hardness of silicone implants, Dr. Cordoba can improve the shape and volume of your cheeks. A compensatory and more proportional volume may help harmonize and rejuvenate the appearance of the entire face.

Silicone cheek implants are safe and long-term devices. They are very well accepted by the body. The implants are available in various shapes and sizes to meet the specific needs of each patient.

 

During a cosmetic cheek surgery, the implants are inserted through small incisions within the mouth. The scars are well hidden.
Cheek augmentation surgery is a one day surgery that does not require hospitalization due to its simplicity, minimal scarring, and rapid recovery.
Cosmetic surgery of the cheeks can be performed as a single procedure or may be combined with other surgeries such as a face lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), or rhinoplasty.
 
 

Alternative Treatments


One option would be not to undergo a cheek augmentation with implants.

There is another surgical options such as lipofilling (injections of own fat) or a non-surgical procedure such as injections of fillers (hyaluronic acid). The sagging of the cheeks can also be adjusted during a face lift by tightening the facial muscles.
