Cheek Augmentation Montreal

Our Montreal cheek augmentation procedure aims to create a balanced and proportionate appearance for the face and neck, effectively defining and lifting sunken cheeks. If you're looking to enhance facial harmony, Dr. Ali, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial surgery, can provide expert guidance.

What is a Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation can involve dermal fillers or fat grafting, as well as surgical implants, to enhance the prominence and youthfulness of cheeks that appear flat or concave.

As we age, the face naturally loses fat, leading to a loss of smoothness and suppleness. Our cheek augmentation procedures in Houston, TX, offer the opportunity to achieve a healthier, more contoured appearance for the cheeks and the face overall.

Cheek Augmentation Has the Ability to:

  • Add youthful, contoured fullness to the face
  • Make the face appear less hollow and sunken
  • Counteract the aging effects on facial features

Because a cheek augmentation is such a personal procedure, it’s important to find a surgical artist like Dr. Mentz. The contours of your face and your unique beauty should only be trusted to a surgeon who can achieve the results you want with minute attention to detail and precision. You want the very best of the best. That’s what Dr. Mentz has been trained and certified to provide.

Dr. Ali's Surgical Technique for Cheek Augmentation

To achieve a naturally sculpted and fuller look for the cheeks, Dr. Ali prefers to restore volume using either cosmetic dermal fillers or cell-enriched fat grafting. If fat grafting is chosen, he will liposuction fat from another area of the body and inject it into the cheeks to re-sculpt their appearance.
Cheek implants may also be an option. To minimize the appearance of scarring, Dr. Ali makes incisions in discreet areas of the face where they either won’t be visible or will blend well with the skin. Cheek implants can be inserted through incisions made inside the mouth or around the eyes.

Cheek Augmentation Options

Implants

Cheek implants can help create a more youthful, sculpted appearance in the midface, reversing the aging process. There are multiple types of implants to choose from (malar, submalar, and malar/submalar) along with a variety of shapes and sizes to suit every individual. While most implants are made with silicone, polyethylene and polytetrafluoroethylene are sometimes used as well.

Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft add plumpness and fullness to the cheeks without the need for invasive surgery, scarring, or downtime. Cheek fillers are typically made with hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound that binds to water, hydrating and rejuvenating the skin from within.

Fat Transfer

During fat transfer, fat cells are harvested from an area such as the belly, thighs, or hips via liposuction. Once the fat has been purified and sterilized, it is injected into the cheeks to achieve a more youthful, elevated appearance. A fat transfer procedure provides the added benefit of sculpting and reshaping the donor regions.

Is a Cheek Augmentation Right for you?

Good candidates for facial implants are those who are dissatisfied with their midface and cheek features, seeking to enhance facial symmetry and restore a more youthful appearance in the mid and lower face.

However, being a good candidate requires more than just a desire for change. Patients must be non-smokers in good mental and physical health, without significant health issues such as hypertension or bleeding disorders that could compromise their treatment or recovery. Lastly, it's essential for clients to have realistic goals for their surgery, which will be discussed in detail during their private consultation.

What will your Private Consultation Entail?

During your private consultation with Dr. Ali, he will examine your features and medical history, discussing your aesthetic goals for your facial appearance. As part of this, he will thoroughly explain the cheek augmentation procedure options and help you decide whether cheek implants or fillers are your best choice. During the consultation, you'll have the opportunity to ask any questions and determine the best option to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Candidates for Cheek Augmentation

If you’re considering our Montreal, QC cheek augmentation, it’s important to understand that the best candidates for this treatment are those:
  • Whose face and skull have fully matured
  • Who are unhappy with their flat or concave cheeks
  • Feel that their weak cheek structure makes them appear unhealthy or aged
  • Have experience volume loss in the cheeks due to age
  • Want a youthful, healthy-looking contour for the cheeks

What to Expect During your Surgery

Cheek enhancement is conducted on an outpatient basis under either general or local anesthesia, determined during your private consultation. Patients can typically return home on the same day as their surgery.

Incisions are made inside the mouth. The cheek implants are meticulously selected to match your unique anatomy and desired outcome. Once positioned, Dr. Ali will close the incisions with fine sutures and apply bandages to minimize swelling.

Recovery

Patients can expect mild to moderate bruising and discomfort for 1 to 2 days post-surgery, during which they'll follow a liquid-only diet. Dr. Ali will provide specific post-operative instructions tailored to each patient, which may include antibiotics, drains, and compression garments. Most patients require 1 to 2 weeks before returning to normal activities, and 6 to 8 weeks before resuming exercise. If cosmetic dermal fillers are utilized, there is typically no recovery time needed.
