About Cheek Augmentation

Hollow or sunken cheeks can make you appear much older than you actually are, and no one wants to be mistaken for being older than their real age. At Uptown Body Contouring, plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio offers nonsurgical cheek augmentation to restore youthful volume and lift. Cheek augmentation is achieved with FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers. At your consultation, Dr. Del Vecchio can go over the benefits of this procedure in greater detail and determine which dermal product will best fit your goals. Contact our New York, NY office to schedule a consultation and learn how cheek augmentation can help you attain a younger, fuller-looking face.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for cheek augmentation are women and men who:

  • Desire more volume in their cheeks
  • Have age-related volume loss in their cheeks
  • Have naturally flat or hollow cheeks
  • Have lost a lot of weight, causing deflated cheeks
  • Have asymmetry in their cheeks caused by genetics, a health condition, or a trauma
  • Are in good overall health

Injectable fillers may be a good option for patients who want to avoid the time and expense of cheek implant surgery. Since injectable fillers are temporary, it can also help patients get a better idea of the amount of volume and lift they want before getting surgical cheek augmentation, which uses implants. 

Surgical Technique

Prior to your treatment, Dr. Del Vecchio will perform a detailed examination to develop a personalized treatment plan that is ideal for your unique needs and goals. Once a treatment plan is created, your appointment will be scheduled. Dermal fillers can be done in our New York, NY office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 30 minutes. For the procedure, the points of injection will be marked along the hollows of the cheeks. Then, the fillers will be injected into the mid-face and massaged to create an even fullness. You will be able to leave right after the procedure and continue your daily activities.

What to Expect

After injections of dermal fillers, the treated areas may feel tender with minor swelling for about 3 – 5 days. Cold packs and over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to minimize discomfort. Optimal results are generally seen in 10 – 14 days. Maintenance injections will be necessary because fillers are a temporary solution. Talk to your injector about when you should return for a touch-up.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does cheek augmentation cost?
Selecting a skilled plastic surgeon, like Dr. Del Vecchio, is essential to attaining natural-looking results. Depending on your needs and goals, the costs of your procedure can vary. After your initial visit and treatment planning, we can review your estimated costs. Dr. Del Vecchio's experience, education, and his keen ability for artistically placing fillers are all well worth the investment you will make in your facial appearance.

What type of dermal fillers do you use for injections?
For many years, Dr. Del Vecchio has had reliable, consistent results from Juvéderm for the cheeks. As a hyaluronic acid product, Juvéderm can enhance the cheeks by filling in sunken, hollow areas beneath the surface of your skin. This is a temporary treatment for volume loss or for the appearance of having higher cheekbones. 

Can I have a fat grafting performed to fill in my cheeks?
Yes. In fact, Dr. Del Vecchio uses state-of-the-art fat grafting techniques for the restoration of volume in the soft tissues of the face and around the orbits. He is also the inventor of the expansion vibration lipo filling method, which offers outstanding outcomes. A fat transfer can also achieve a more natural look and feel to your cheeks than dermal fillers. To determine if fat grafting is right for you, we recommend setting up an appointment with Dr. Del Vecchio at our office in NYC.
