Cheek Augmentation for Men in New York

Manhattan, New York City

Unfortunately, most of us aren't born with high cheekbones and as we age our faces tend to droop further diminishing what little triangular shape we have. Cheek Augmentation can help achieve the attractiveness associated with prominent cheekbones. Cheek augmentation can be achieved either through the use of an implant via an incision inside the mouth or through the use of fat grafting. We now prefer fat grafting because it obviates the need for a foreign body with its possible untoward effects. We feel fat grafting, which may be performed under local anesthesia, provides a more natural result and can better be customized to the patient. Because of possible absorption of the fat, it may have to be repeated.

The Procedure
Cheek augmentation using an implant is performed under general anesthesia and takes around two hours. A wide Cheek Augmentation for Men in New Yorkchoice of implant types are available for individual tailoring for your needs. The implants are inserted without any external or visible scars. Fat augmentation of the cheeks can be performed under local anesthesia. Cheek augmentation is often done in conjunction with other procedures to improve the overall harmony of your face, such as face lift, chin augmentation, or blepharoplasty.

You may return home later the same day and there are no dressings or sutures to remove. Taping is used for several days and the patient is placed in liquid to soft diet for the first few days. Bruising and swelling is minimal and subsides within a week or two.
