About

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!

What Is

Cheek Augmentation ?

Cheek augmentation aids in providing volume to the cheek in order to lift them and give a firmer and contoured appearance. It helps to get rid of the sagginess and droopy look of the cheeks that generally can be seen as one ages. Also, it can help to acquire aesthetically pleasing cheeks that enhance the overall appearance of the face.

What Are The

Different Methods Of Performing A Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation is generally done with the help of one of the following:

  • Cheek augmentation with the help of fat grafting
    Cheek augmentation can be done with the help of fat grafting. In this situation, fat is extracted from any other part of the body where there seems to be excessive fat. This is generally done through liposuction. The fat is then processed and inserted into the cheeks for a fuller and smooth appearance. As one’s own fat is used for the process, the chances of any adverse reaction are nullified.
  • Cheek augmentation through implants
    In case of cheek augmentation through implants, small incisions are either made inside the mouth or under the eyelids. Pockets are created for the implants to be inserted and then placed. Silicone implants are the most commonly used implants for cheek augmentation.

It is absolutely necessary to have a consultation with Dr Santosh Bhatia first in order to analyse the condition of the breasts and then going for the breast revision process that best suits your situation.
