Cheek Augmentation in Chicago for Sunken Cheeks

If you wish to achieve full and youthful cheeks, cheek augmentation could be right for you. This is cosmetic surgery that makes the cheeks fuller with the use of implants. Implants are solid materials that are compatible with human tissues that enhance the look of cheekbones and make cheeks look fuller. Some plastic surgeons may use structural fat grafting or injectable fillers that use soft tissue filler or your own fat to restore the appearance of cheeks. A board-certified plastic surgeon should perform the surgery for you to minimize risks and give you a satisfying look. Cheek augmentation is among the many facial treatments that Dr. Bloch from Chicago performs at his facility, Body by Bloch. You can arrange a consultation meeting with him at The cheek surgery can be combined with other facial procedures such as facelift, brow lift, rhinoplasty or eye lift.


How is cheek implant surgery performed?

Cheek augmentation is performed under general anesthesia. After you are relaxed, Dr. Bloch makes incisions either on your lower eyelid or inside the mouth. Through the incision, the implant is inserted and supported with deep sutures. Incisions can also be used for other facial procedures that you want to be done along cheek augmentation. After implant placement, incisions are closed with stitches or sutures. Scarring is less minimal with incisions done inside the mouth.
