What is Cheek Augmentation ?
The cheeks play a significant role in defining an attractive face. Well-defined cheeks have been recognized as a hallmark of beauty. Adding the sufficient volume to the cheeks can improve the facial contour and one can have a youthful appearance.
Aesthetic procedures like cheek augmentation or cheek implant restores a more youthful appearance by using either fat, fillers or implants. Owing to the advantages, cheek augmentation is becoming one of the popular facial plastic surgeries in India. Face plastic surgery in India is done at state-of the art hospitals that are well equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure to give the best results in plastic surgery.

Types of Cheek Augmentation procedures
There are a number of options available in India for cheek augmentation to suit your needs. Some of them are listed below:
Cheek implant surgery: In this technique, the surgeon uses solid silicone implants to achieve the look of firmer cheeks.
Soft tissue cheek fillers: The soft tissue cheek fillers (collagen or restylane) are temporary alternatives and are less invasive than solid implants.
Fat grafting: In this technique, fat is extracted from some part of the body through liposuction, then processed to and is placed to add volume to the cheek area. This also eliminates the possibility of rejection.
This procedure is commonly combined with other procedures such as facelift or chin augmentation.
How is Cheek Augmentation done?
The surgeon begins by making an incision-the usual choice for incisions for cheek implants is either in the natural lines of the lower eyelashes to avoid any scars or inside the mouth at the junction of gums and lips.
A pocket is created following the incision in the facial tissue.
The implant is then inserted in the pocket and the incision sutured.
What is the Recovery after Cheek Augmentation like?
You can return to work and other normal activities within a week after the cheek implants or cheek augmentation surgery. You will have to avoid vigorous activities which can involve rough contact of the surgery site for at least six to eight weeks.

Fat transfer to calves is an option for people with a good amount of fat available from the donor sites- viz. your abdomen, thighs, arms, hips or buttocks from where the fat can be harvested.

But the results may not be as pronounced as implants and a touch up may be required.
