Everything You Need to Know About Cheek Implants

Cheek Implant Surgery

As we get older, our cheeks can sag from loss of volume due to decreased collagen production. Your facial structure can be lifted through the use of cheek implants to create a more youthful appearance. Here’s a guide to everything you need to know about cheek implants.

What are Cheek Implants?

Cheek implants are a cosmetic procedure to increase the volume and contour of a person’s face. There are three kinds of cheek implants. Implants can be placed during surgery to provide permanent results. A fat transfer moves fatty tissue from one area of the body to the cheeks to create a healthier appearance. Injectable fillers can also be used to bring more fullness to the face.

Depending on which option you choose, the procedure can last less than a few hours. You’ll have permanent results that you can notice and enjoy immediately. Any scarring will be inconspicuous and will fade over time. They can be removed later on if you decide they aren’t right for you.

When to Consider Cheek Implants

If you’re unhappy with the shape of your cheekbones, cheek implants may be an option you want to strongly consider. These implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Cheek implants can be highly beneficial if you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight or lost volume due to aging. Having a consultation with a qualified surgeon can help you determine which treatment option will be best suited for your individual needs.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
