Cheek Augmentation

Cheek AugmentationCheek augmentation, also referred to as a cheek lift is used to add volume or lift to the cheeks. It is common that as we age, we lose volume in our faces and we experience sagging. A cheek lift can correct these effects of the aging process.

There are three options for cheek augmentation:

  • The use of solid cheek implants
  • Fat grafting/transfer where a patient’s own fat is used
  • Injectable fillers, which is a non-surgical option

If you’re considering cheek augmentation, take some time reviewing cheek augmentation photos. Dr. McLain and his staff will be happy to give you some guidance.
