Cheek Augmentation

The cheeks are a dominant feature of the face. Having lifted and firm cheeks is considered an epitome of beauty and youthfulness. But is everybody equally blessed in having those firm, high and lifted cheeks? The answer would be no! Ageing is a major factor that affects the overall appearance of the cheeks making them recessed and saggy. Apart from that, the facial structure also contributes to this. Some people inherently have hollowed or flat cheeks that may bring down their confidence and self esteem.

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, headed by Dr Santosh Bhatia, prides itself on providing a solution to this issue and restoring a youthful look and firmness to the cheeks through a simple yet effective surgery: Cheek augmentation!
