If you’ve found yourself yearning for a more prominent set of cheekbones, that classically beautiful look you’ve always dreamed of can be yours! Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that adds volume and contours to your cheeks, resulting in a natural look that’s sure to turn heads. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers cheek augmentation for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.

What Exactly is Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation is perfect for younger and older patients alike, and can address different issues that are unique to each age group. Younger patients may not have well-defined cheeks, while older patients tend to lose volume in their cheeks as they age...and both can be fixed up with our cheek augmentation procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Cheek Augmentation?

  • Enjoy a naturally beautiful look, with implants that come in multiple shapes and styles
  • Enhance and balance your facial contours
  • Correct irregularities and remedy congenital deformities

Am I the Ideal Candidate for Cheek Augmentation?

If you’re an adult who wants to add some definition to the middle portion of your face, you’re a perfect fit for cheek augmentation. The same goes for younger individuals whose cheeks are poorly defined, as well as older patients who have lost volume in their cheeks.

What Should I Do Before Having My Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation can change your appearance for the better, and it’s important that you understand every step of the procedure before you move forward.

Setting up an in-person consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons will help you understand everything you need to know, so you can be comfortable and completely at ease before your cheek augmentation procedure.

What Should I Expect on The Day of My Cheek Augmentation?

The incision for your cheek augmentation will be placed on the outer cheek, or at the top of your upper lip. Your surgeon will form a pocket inside the soft tissue before placing the implant. Once the implant is properly positioned, the incisions will be closed.

What Can I Expect After My Cheek Augmentation?

Your Richmond cheek augmentation will cause a feeling of tightness in the face for a few days, during which time you might also deal with some mild to moderate pain. Using your mouth might be a little difficult until the swelling subsides.

How Long Does Cheek Augmentation Take?

Cheek augmentation usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes.

Will I Have Scars After My Cheek Augmentation?

The only visible scar left after a cheek augmentation comes from an incision made just below the eye, which is thankfully quite small and not noticeable.

When Will I See My Results?

Right away! The results of your cheek augmentation will be noticeable immediately after your procedure.

Are There Any Possible Complications with Cheek Augmentation?

Possible complications from cheek augmentation are typically limited to infection and shifting of the implant, but these issues only come up in rare cases.

How Long Will the Results of My Cheek Augmentation Last?

Forever, but you can always have your implant removed, if needed.

How Much Does Cheek Augmentation Cost in Richmond?

Most insurance won’t cover the cost of your cheek augmentation. We’ll provide a cost breakdown after your consultation, and walk you through our payment options. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
