Cheek Augmentation to emphasize your facial contours
Prominent cheekbones add beauty and natural contours to the face. Unfortunately, attractive cheekbones do not come naturally for everyone, and the aging process can change the appearance of formerly high, full cheekbones. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Gabriel E. Salloum, M.D., F.A.C.S., specializes in cheek enhancements, a surgical procedure that adds cheek volume, lifts aging skin, and creates beautiful facial contours at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL.
What Is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that emphasizes the cheekbones, bringing out the beauty of the patient’s eyes and face. Dr. Salloum customizes the procedure based on his patient’s facial structure, skin elasticity, and goals. Cheek enhancement adds balance to the face, strengthens shallow or hollow cheeks, and lifts sagging skin.
Dr. Salloum offers several cheek enhancement options, including implants, dermal fillers, and facial fat transfer. He often performs cheek enhancements along with a facelift, eyelid surgery, or other complimentary facial procedures.
Implants provide permanent augmentation for improved facial contours. While facial implants are available in many sizes, shapes, and types, Dr. Salloum typically recommends silicone implants because silicone is safe and biocompatible, and offers permanent improvements ranging from subtle to dramatic, so you can pair them with chin implants for a more complete facial balance.
Injectable Filler treatments
Injectable fillers offer a non-surgical alternative to implants with little to no downtime. Facial fillers like Radiesse®, Juvederm, and Restylane® provide augmentation in the mid-face for enhanced facial aesthetics. Fillers can lift and contour the cheek area, creating a more youthful appearance. Regularly scheduled treatments will allow patients to maintain their injection results and enjoy long-lasting improvements.
Dr. Salloum may recommend a liquid facelift, which temporarily improves multiple areas of the face, treats fine lines and wrinkles, adds volume to the temples, fills the hollow areas under the eyes, boosts flat cheeks, lifts the brows, and more. Fillers last 6 months to 2 years, depending on the product used and the treatment area.
Facial fat naturally decreases with age, creating wrinkles, sagging skin, bony contours around the temples and eyes, and deflation in the cheeks. Dr. Salloum may recommend a minimally invasive facial fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, which restores subtle, long-lasting volume to the cheeks.
To perform this procedure, the doctor removes fat from one area of the body (such as the stomach or hips) using liposuction and injects the cleansed fat back into the body to add volume to the cheeks or other areas of the face.
There is little risk of infection or rejection of the fat because the body recognizes it as its own tissue. Dr. Salloum performs fat grafting to enhance facial volume and improve various areas of the body, including the breasts and buttocks.

Ideal Candidate for Cheek Augmentation
Dr. Salloum examines prospective patients for candidacy during a private consultation in Miami Beach. Ideal cheek enhancement candidates are in good physical health, are not allergic to the augmentation material, and are motivated to improve their appearance by adding definition to their cheekbones. A qualified candidate for cheek implants will clearly understand their chosen procedure and have realistic expectations, acknowledging the limitations and benefits of the procedure.
Cheek Enhancement Consultation
Dr. Gabriel Salloum provides private consultations at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery. The luxurious spa-like facility offers complimentary valet service and pampers each patient with attentive care.
During the private meeting, the doctor shares before-and-after photos of prior patients who received implants, fat grafting, or cheek injectables. Dr. Salloum reviews the prospective patient’s health history and performs a physical examination to assess the elasticity of the skin and the underlying bone structure before recommending a cheek enhancement treatment.
Dr. Salloum then explains the customized treatment details, along with the benefits, risks, and financial investment. He will also invite the patient to ask questions.
Cheek Enhancement Procedure
Dr. Gabriel Salloum performs cheek enhancement surgery in Miami Beach, FL, at a local accredited surgical center. The augmentation is customized to match the patient’s goals, so the location of the incisions and the use of local, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia will vary based on the technique.
Dr. Salloum often performs cheek augmentation alongside other cosmetic procedures, so additional steps may be required. Dr. Salloum will explain the surgical details during the consultation.
Fat Grafting for Cheek Enhancement
Dr. Salloum typically completes fat grafting as an outpatient procedure using local or general anesthesia. The doctor creates a small incision in the donor area and inserts a tiny cannula to extract fat from the abdomen, hips, or thighs.
The doctor cleans the fat before injecting the healthy, undamaged fat cells into the cheeks. The fat is grafted as living tissue with very little risk of rejection. Mild bruising and swelling typically fade within 2 weeks. The fat grafting procedure typically takes 1 hour but is often combined with a facelift.
Cheek Enhancement with Implants
General anesthesia is typically used during outpatient implant surgery. Dr. Salloum adapts the implant to match the patient’s facial structure and inserts it through a small incision inside the mouth. The doctor may use a suture to secure each implant, and the tissue conforms to the silicone implants in approximately three days.
The patient will see improvements to the cheeks immediately, and the final results emerge approximately three weeks after the bruising and swelling subside. This surgery typically takes about 30 minutes, but patients often choose to combine it with a facelift or eyelid surgery.
Cheek Augmentation with Dermal Fillers
Dr. Salloum numbs the face with a topical anesthetic before providing cheek filler injections like Radiesse®, Juvederm, or Restylane®. He injects the gel-like substance under the skin above the cheekbone to add volume and create enhanced facial contours.
Once he has completed the cheek filler treatment as planned, Dr. Salloum may inject filler in other areas to reduce lines, smooth wrinkles, and fill depressed areas. The doctor gently massages the cheek area and other injection sites to disperse the gel and provide smooth, natural results. The treatment typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, but patients often choose this treatment along with a liquid facelift, eyelid surgery, or similar procedures.
Cheek Augmentation Recovery
Dr. Salloum will explain surgical aftercare instructions during the consultation. Follow the doctor’s recovery instructions carefully to reduce the risk of complications and encourage the best results. Recovery expectations vary widely depending on which treatments you receive.
The doctor may place special dressings over the area to minimize swelling and to support the cheeks as they heal following implant or fat grafting surgery. The doctor may recommend a liquid diet and a special mouth rinse if the implant procedure involves an incision inside the mouth.
