How Do Cheek Implants Change the Shape of the Face?

If you want to alter your face’s appearance, you have several different treatment options from which to choose. For example, using fillers or implants in the cheeks will result in plump, youthful-looking skin, but they achieve this effect differently.

To know which to pick, you first determine your aesthetic goals (why you are considering facial plastic surgery) and how you wish to alter your appearance. For example, do you want more pronounced cheekbones, a rounder face, softer features or firmness?

Cheek Implants Offer Permanent Roundness

Putting a small silicone implant in the hollow of your cheek is one way to change how your face looks. The permanent results from cheek implants mean your cheeks will always look naturally rounded and firm. The procedure takes about a day or two, and recovery usually takes a week.

Cheek implants can make your face look fuller and more balanced. Your plastic surgeon will ensure each implant is the right size for the desired result. In addition, they can shape the implants to fit any face shape you want.

Those with a weak facial framework can benefit the most from cheek implants since it would take numerous filler injections to get the same result.

Cheek Implants Reverse the Signs of Aging

The face loses fat and the bones restructure as we get older. Therefore, to an outside observer, it would appear that the features of our faces have sunken out. Additionally, the skin appears less supple.

Facial support structures diminish as we age, including the muscles and fascia. As a result, the skin becomes lax and loses its contours.

The color and flexibility of your skin may also shift as biological activities deep within the cells slow down. This is because the skin loses its ability to create collagen and maintain moisture as we age. Then, wrinkles and fine lines start to become permanent.

Fortunately, all these negative consequences of aging can be remedied with the help of cheek implants. By filling the space under your skin and over your shrinking muscles, they smooth out wrinkles, firm sagging skin and volumize your hollowing face.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

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

Joann M.
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.
