Cheek augmentation is a popular procedure that can be used to restore, augment, or reconstruct the contours of your face. The implants are available in a variety of sizes and shapes and can be used to restore loss of body, or create a more sculpted and contoured appearance. If your cheeks are sunken, flat, or have changed over time, Dr. Kerendian, our Los Angeles cheek augmentation expert, can help.
Dr. Kerendian, our expert in cheek augmentation in Los Angeles, may suggest cheek augmentation if you:
• Have poorly defined cheeks
• Have lost volume due to aging or weight loss
• Want to improve the definition of your cheeks
• Wish to restore lost contour
• Want to create a more proportionate appearance
• Have deformities, asymmetries, or abnormalities due to injuries or congenital conditions
• Are in good general health and have realistic expectations
Cheek implants are similar to other types of implants. They generally consist of solid silicone inserts, which are available in a variety of sizes and styles, and can also be customized. Injectables may also be used for temporary enhancements. Before your procedure, Dr. Kerendian, our Los Angeles cheek augmentation expert, will examine you to determine your candidacy for the procedure. We will explain the process and determine the best way to proceed. You will need to bring information about your medical history, including a list of your current medications, so that we can ensure your safety before and during the surgical procedure. Your treatment plan will be created based on your unique physical characteristics, the type of procedure you choose, and your individual goals.
