Cheek Augmentation & Cosmetic Surgery

The skin over the face can be compared to a drape. The underlying skeletal structure determines the shape of the face. In some individuals, this framework is not as pronounced as in other individuals and they may appear to have a flattened face or small, recessed chin. Studies also show that as we age, we not only lose volume in the soft tissues of the face but also in the facial skeleton itself. This is very common in the midface which can easily be enhanced with facial implants.
Dr. Mohamed is able to add facial implants to the facial skeleton to accentuate the areas of the cheekbone, chin, nose, and angle of the lower jaw. By performing these skeletal augmentations, they are able to re-drape and tighten the skin of the face. This provides a more healthy and youthful appearance without the need for a more extensive skeletal reconstructive surgery. This cosmetic surgery is performed from incisions within the mouth with no visible scars. Immediate results are evident. Solid silicone implants are typically used. They are secured to the bone with a one or two small titanium screws to prevent the implants from moving. Different types and sizes of cheek implants are available to provide the most appealing look.
