Cheek Augmentation for a More Youthful Look Beverly Hills, CA
Cheek Procedures

When it comes to aging, the midface is often an overlooked area. By ignoring this area of your face, you are running the risk of looking older. Cheek augmentation can restore your youthful appearance, and your confidence as well.

What is Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation, also known as midface modification, is a term used for several procedures that can augment the structure and appearance of the cheeks. Cheek augmentation can be achieved using implants or fillers. Submalar, or mid-face, implants are installed under the skin where the cheekbone starts. Malar implants are placed below the skin in the area where the cheekbone sits in order to achieve a more angular facial structure.

Fillers are more often used by older patients to achieve a fuller cheek area without undergoing a surgical procedure. These fillers are made with hyaluronic or polylactic acid and are injected into the cheek and under eye area to plump the face and make the face appear younger.

Implant Surgery: What to Expect

During surgery, the surgeon will administer an anesthetic. An incision will be made large enough to accommodate the implant. Once the implant is placed, the surgeon will close the incision, which will be small enough to result in very minimal, if any, scarring. The incision will be closed with sutures or adhesives, depending on the type of incision used.

After surgery, expect to see localized swelling that can range from a few days to around two weeks. You may experience bruising and tenderness during this time as well, and cool compresses can help reduce swelling and pain. You may also experience numbness in the region for up to a few months post-surgery. Regular activity may be resumed within a few days after the procedure, but you will be advised to avoid injury to the region for at least 4-6 weeks. 

The midface is an often-overlooked area when it comes to facial augmentation, but it can create dramatic, natural-looking results that will leave friends and family commenting on your youthful looks. If you would like more information on cheek augmentation or any other facial procedure, call the office of Kami Parsa, M.D. to schedule a consultation.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
