What are the options for Cheek Augmentation?
Essentially there are four main categories for cheek augmentation. Implants, fat transfer, lower blepharoplasty (cheek lift), and dermal fillers. Three of these are surgical options and dermal fillers are a less invasive procedure where a substance is injected into the face with a needle.
This is less invasive, but the results are also less dramatic and only temporary. To find out more about our dermal fillers, you can find more information under the LUX Spa tab at the top of the page. For more information on the surgical options, keep reading.
A fat transfer cheek augmentation is a procedure where fat is removed from one part of your body (usually the thighs, abdomen, and hips) through liposuction and deposited and resculpted in your cheeks. It takes a highly skilled surgeon to graft the fatty tissue and resculpts it for natural fuller looking cheeks. Dr. Larsen is exceptionally talented in facial surgeries and creating natural results.
Implants are another surgical option for cheek augmentation. Implants are the most reliable, predictable, and permanent option for cheek implants. In this procedure, an implant (usually made of silicone) is often attached to the cheekbone under the facial tissue.
Cheek Lift (Lower Blepharoplasty)
A cheek lift can be performed to lift sagging skin under the eyes and over the cheeks. A fine incision is made at the lower eyelid lash line and extended slightly past the lateral corners of the eyes. Dr. Larsen will remove excess skin and, if needed, reposition the fat pad underneath the eye to give the patient more volume resulting in a more youthful appearance. This procedure can also be paired with a fat transfer if more volume is desired.
As you can see there really is no “best” option here. These are all safe and effective options that have different effects. If you are still trying to decide which option is best for you, call us today and book a free consultation. Dr. Larsen and his team will be happy to answer your questions and find the best treatment option for your optimal results.

What is the cost of cheek augmentation?
According to 2019 statistics, the average cost of cheek augmentation surgery is $2,986. This average however is only part of the total price, it does not include things like anesthesia, operating facilities, or other related expenses. At Buckhead Plastic Surgery it’s common for people to pair this procedure with other cosmetic surgeries or injections.
Unfortunately, cheek augmentation surgery is generally considered elective surgery and not covered by many insurance plans. However, in an effort to meet the needs of as many patients as possible, we do work with many third-party medical financing companies. Financing is available for those who qualify.
