Cheek augmentation before and after

Facial harmony does not only depend on the lips, nose or eyes. The slight protuberances in the cheeks, cheekbones and chin are important to achieve aesthetic balance in our face. Offering more prominence to an area that needs it, can be basic to harmonize the whole and to be able to see the results.

Although extremely infrequent, the main ones are those derived from any intervention: hematomas and infections. In the specific case of prosthetic implants, the risk is the slight asymmetry that may remain between both cheekbones since they are located in different positions in their natural shape.

Face, mouth, nose and eyes take a different proportion enhancing the beauty of each person in a discreet way. The changes they produce in the overall appearance of the face are very positive but without losing its identity.

The injected fat can be partially reabsorbed by our body which will require a second intervention at least 6 months after the first one. Against this disadvantage, is the fact that doctor and patient can opt for a gradual approach to the final result that provides security and greater patient control.


The projection of the cheekbones is key in giving attractiveness and character to the face. A cheek augmentation in this region offers two important benefits: a facial rejuvenation and an increase in facial beauty.

Thanks to the customized malar prostheses and a minimally invasive surgery, the patient can return to normal life within 48 hours and the results are immediate; in a few days the implant is perfectly integrated into the patient’s face and the contour of the cheekbones recovers the three-dimensionality achieving a more beautiful and harmonious effect.

It is possible to restore volume and correct facial wrinkles using the patient’s own fat as a filler. It is the most natural way since within the adipose tissue we find mesenchymal stem cells that once reintroduced help to fill and rejuvenate our appearance. We use it together in facelift treatments as an alternative to prosthesis.

It is possible to augment the cheekbones in those patients who do not have enough volume or the desired shape due to birth defects or traumatic injuries. It is a cosmetic surgery that allows the modification of the tissues in the area of the cheekbones and the middle third of the face.


The aesthetic surgery of the cheekbones (or pomuloplasty), consists in the increase of the cheekbones, through the introduction of synthetic material (solid silicone, Gore-tex, etc…) or with osteotomies, with the injection of own fat, or with the extraction of the buccal fat or Bichat’s ball, which causes a lowering of the cheek and, therefore, an accentuation of the cheekbone.

The aesthetic surgery of the cheekbones (pomuloplasty) with prosthesis placement is performed through an intraoral incision (inside the mouth) and the prosthesis is placed at the level of the cheekbones to give them volume and sutured with resorbable material. The scars are completely invisible even the preauricular scars are quite well concealed since the tissues in that area have good healing.

Some of the potential complications that may occur are hematoma, that is to say that the space fills with blood, which resolves in a week. Others can be infection, seromas or excessive swelling from whistling or blowing in the postoperative period.

Cheek Augmentation

Facial implants are used to improve facial contours. Often these implants help give a more harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.

There are many implants available, made from a wide variety of materials. These implants can straighten the jawline, bring forward a chin or cheekbones, helping to balance the rest of the face.

This text describes some of the facial implants available as well as the techniques for their use. With these facts you can familiarize yourself with these procedures but for more details that may be relevant to your particular case it is preferable that the information be personalized.

Facial implants can improve your appearance and your self-esteem. If you are looking for improvement, not perfection, in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, a facial implant may be the right choice.

We often use these implants to achieve a better balance of a young patient’s features. For example, a teenage girl may need to reshape her nose and bring her chin forward a bit to make her features more proportionate. More mature patients generally use implants in conjunction with other treatments. For example, during a facelift, implants placed over the cheekbones contribute to a more youthful appearance. Implants can also be used to improve faces that appear sad or tired.
