Sunken or indented cheeks can affect our overall appearance and make us look tired, angry, and older than we actually are. Whether you were born with the bothersome condition or have suffered from age-related volume loss, we’re here to help. Stein Plastic Surgery has a wide variety of custom cosmetic facial procedures to help you achieve the look and feel you want.

While there is no one-size-fits-all answer for everyone, there are a few reasons you may lean towards implants over fillers. Before any procedure, it’s important to speak with a board-certified surgeon with experience in the facial procedures you’re considering to ensure you’re making an informed decision.

While dermal fillers are great for short-term results, they typically only last 6-months or so. Fillers provide subtle results and can be a good option for patients who would like take more voluptuous cheeks for a ‘test ride’ before committing to a lifelong solution.

Cheek implants are made of medical-grade silicone and come in numerous shapes and sizes designed to meet your desired results. The procedure can be done in as little as 30-60 minutes and produces instant results. Implants are the ideal solution for men and women seeking long-term results with minimal downtime.

Medical-grade facial implants provide more volume and a 3D structure that fillers simply can’t. For patients who have severely sunken cheeks, dermal fillers may not be enough to give you the outcome you’re looking for.

What’s Right for You?

You may be a good candidate for cheek implants if you’re unhappy with your overall facial appearance due to weak cheek structure and would like a procedure with lifelong results. Men and women who are interested in a subtle short-term change and aren’t ready for surgery may want to consider dermal fillers.

Double board-certified Dr. Stein will talk to you about all of your options in-depth at the time of your initial consultation. Dr. Stein routinely performs facial surgical procedures and has helped thousands of men and women reach their desired outcome.
