Full and contoured cheeks are a sign of youthfulness and beauty, but as time moves on, the face ages and loses fat in certain areas. One of the most noticeable areas where this occurs is in the cheeks, which become flat as the skin begins to sag, and the result is a sunken look. Although some people are blessed with naturally high cheekbones, achieving the look of sculpted, defined cheeks can be accomplished through both non-surgical and surgical treatments. These treatments, offered by Deigni Plastic Surgery, focus on restoring youthfulness, plumpness, volume, and definition.
If you are considering booking a consultation for a cheek augmentation in Houston, you have come to the right place. Dr. Olivier Deigni is board-certified plastic surgeon and skilled in the art of facial plastic surgery, with years of rigorous training and medical experience to bring you the best possible results.
The first step is to book an initial consultation with Dr. Deigni. In this discussion, we will provide you a full assessment, where we will outline your options and create a strategic plan to help you get the beautiful cheeks that you desire. It is important to share any medical history or medications that might affect the healing process. While this might not preclude you from getting a cheek enhancement, you might be required to quit smoking or taking a certain drug prior to the surgery.
For the most dramatic, visible results, you will want to opt for surgical cheek implants. Dr. Deigni will create small, concealed incisions from inside the mouth. The cheek implant is then carefully inserted into the pocket and positioned directly on or below the cheekbone as per your needs. If this is simultaneously performed with another procedure, the cheek implants will be inserted through the same incisions to ensure minimal scarring to your face. Once the implants are firmly placed in the desired location, the incisions are sutured shut.
The result of the cheek augmentation in Houston is a youthful, more defined facial contour and beautifully defined cheeks. This procedure takes approximately one hour to complete and is performed in our facility under general anesthesia. However, if you are getting multiple surgeries at once, the process will take longer.
This procedure accomplishes two goals at once. In this liposuction-based surgical procedure, Dr. Deigni takes your own fat from another part of your body, like the hips, belly, thighs or buttocks, and transfers it to your cheeks. The result: fuller, plumper, more defined cheeks and a reduction of stubborn fat from one or more of your problem areas. Because it is using your own fat tissue, there is no chance of your body rejecting it.
For approximately one week after cheek augmentation surgery in Houston, patients may experience limited movement of the mouth area, particularly the lips. Sutures will dissolve after approximately ten days, although based on your particular needs you may be required to come back to our office to have them professionally removed. Usually, you can return to your normal daily activities after two weeks.
If you do not wish to go through with a full surgery, or you are not the ideal candidate for a surgical procedure, we also provide non-surgical options to help you obtain beautiful, contoured and defined cheeks.
We can easily help you restore the volume and fullness lost with age, or enhance definition to the mid-face and cheeks with the use of injectable fillers right here in our Med Spa. This treatment will take less than an hour and will have a much shorter downtime and recovery (in many cases requiring no downtime). Results can last up to a year or more if you maintain a healthy lifestyle. To continue your amazing results, be sure to come in for touch-ups as recommended by our team – usually six to twelve months.
Cheek enhancements are designed to seamlessly complement and enhance your unique facial features. Whether you opt for a surgical or non-surgical route, our cheek augmentation in Houston can help you transform your face, making you feel more beautiful and more confident.
