The cheeks are one of the first areas to lose volume as we age. Enhancement in this area can help rejuvenate your appearance and turn back the hands of time to help you appear more youthful. We offer a myriad of cheek augmentation options that can be customized and combined to help deliver the best results.

The cheeks are a popular area that people focus on to help enhance the overall appearance and profile of the face. This is because, as a focal area of your appearance, having a voluminous cheek and sharp cheekbones is a desired trait and can be a coveted look for many. Contouring and other beauty hacks or makeup tricks can help, but this might not be the right solution for all patients. Certain male patients, for example, may desire a stronger cheek and thus opt for a different approach than a woman might. Cheek augmentation procedures are an excellent solution for anyone who wants to see a boost or replenish lost hydration, volume, and contour from weight changes or natural side effects of aging.

What Can I Expect From Cheek Augmentation?

We offer procedures that can be customized and tweaked to suit each patient’s unique facial structure and overall aesthetic needs. We offer different options to help address the loss of volume or adjustments in facial structure and profile.

These can vary from minimally-invasive procedures to cosmetic surgery and can help to deliver different results based on what you need. During your initial consultation with Dr. Otake, you’ll be able to discuss your aesthetic goals, any concerns you may have, and what your current lifestyle is. They will help you get a better idea of treatment options available to you and what you can expect from the procedure.

What Types of Treatment Options Are Available?

Cheek augmentation can be approached in various different ways and offer results ranging from slight enhancements to dramatic changes. In some cases, patients might opt to combine this with other procedures, such as a facelift or other facial services, or undergo a cheek augmentation as a standalone treatment. The most common treatment options our Connecticut cheek augmentation patients opt for include:

  • Sculptra®: Sculptra® uses a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid to replace lost collagen and gradually reduce facial wrinkles and lines in the skin. Patients will need various rounds of Sculptra® injections, scheduled roughly three times, 4-6 weeks apart. When properly cared for, the results of this procedure may last up to several years.
  • Restylane® Lyft: This popular injectable gel is formulated to help enhance volume in the cheeks. This hydrating injectable is made of the naturally-occurring compound, hyaluronic acid. The HA binds to the tissues within your skin to boost collagen.
  • Surgical Implants: To achieve the look of sharper, more defined cheekbones, a silicone implant can be surgically inserted to permanently accentuate the contour of your cheeks.

Who is a Candidate?

Candidates for the procedure include patients in good general health that have healthy lifestyle habits and do not smoke or drink excessively.

You must have realistic expectations for your outcome and understand the potential results of your treatment. For some procedures, patients must be 21 years or older. During your initial consultation, you’ll be able to discuss what your goals are and Dr. Otake will help determine which approach is best for you.

What Are the Benefits of a Cheek Augmentation?

As we age, our skin can start to lose volume and develop wrinkles or fine lines. In particular, this is true about the face and our facial features.

Areas like the cheeks and midface region are often the first to change as gravity, natural side effects of aging, sun damage, weight fluctuations, and more affect it. Typically, this can cause the cheekbones, cheeks, and area near the nose and mouth to warp or lose volume. Cheek augmentation can help to improve your facial contour and deliver a more youthful and overall more flattering appearance.
