Beverly Hills, Orange County Plastic Surgeon:  Cheek Augmentation Surgery, Cheek Lift

Kyoung Charles Kim, MD is a Orange County/ Beverly Hills Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery of the face, breast and body.  The Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon is Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and offers various best in class surgeries including:  Cheek Augmentation Surgery and Cheek Lift Surgery.

Cheek Augmentation Surgery:  Cheek augmentation is done for a variety of different aesthetic reasons. Besides the obvious need to fill out a sunken in cheek appearance and improve facial balance, cheek augmentation surgery is also commonly used for an anti-aging effect. By augmenting the soft submalar tissue to fill midfacial hollows, the lifting of this tissue provides a facial rejuvenating effect and may even soften the depth of the nasolabial fold beneath it.

Cheek Implants are a popular way to achieve the ideal aesthetic cheek shape.  Cheek Implants come in many shapes and sizes and the Plastic Surgeon will review the options with you during your complimentary consultation with the LA/ Orange County Plastic Surgeon. 

Fat transfer to cheeks is also offered by the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon.  Transfering facial fat to the cheeks is an aesthetically pleasing and minimally invasive restoration procedure that allows the Orange County Plastic Surgeon to alter and rejuvenate the face to its more youthful and refreshed look with fat from the patient.

This fat transfer to cheeks procedure is performed using a minimally-invasive method and features very little down time. With this procedure, the patient's own fat tissue is removed, processed, and then is reinjected deep in the face to help provide enhancement to the face, lips, cheeks, chin and cheekbones.

Cheek Augmentation Surgery can also be achieved with various facial injectables - such as Restylane -- this is known as "non-surgical cheek augmentation".  However, though lasting years - the procedure is not permanent.
