About Cheek Augmentation
If you want to improve the hollow features of your mid-face, we can help at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa. Our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons provide excellent augmentation services for patients wanting to plump the cheek area of the face that has fallen flat due to aging, years of smoking, fluctuations in weight, or genetics. We have many options available at our surgery center, such as:
Cheek implants: We can surgically insert a synthetic implant into your cheek to smooth your skin and fill in lost volume. This is an invasive procedure with longer-lasting results.
Fat transfer: With the transfer from your own purified body fat, we can fill in the areas of your mid-face. Using liposuction on one area of your body like the abdomen, we can augment your face using your own fat.
Injectable fillers: For a noninvasive approach, we can use cosmetic injectable fillers, such as Restylane® or Juvéderm®, to temporarily fill in your cheeks. You can also try an injectable filler first before having an augmentation done to see how you like the results.
As you can see, there are different ways that we can enhance your sunken cheeks. We offer discreet consultations in our private practice in Delray Beach, FL. If you would like to know more, please contact our office for an appointment.
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017
"I had an amazing experience. - Dr. Goodwin performed an abdominalplasty during my hysterectomy. The scar from the incision is hardly noticeable and my stomach looks fantastic. I have dropped a dress size and I'm still swollen. Dr. Goodwin is easy to talk to and answered my questions. His staff is also fantastic. Very happy with the results."- V. / RealSelf / Aug 02, 2017

The best candidates for cheek augmentation surgery are men and women who have:
- Overall good health and are non-smokers
- Hollow cheeks
- Droopy/loose cheeks
- Lack of facial definition
What to Expect
During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will examine your cheeks and discuss the best size, shape, and placement for the implant. A local anesthetic will be given prior to the procedure to help alleviate discomfort and pain. During surgery, the implants will be placed in the cheeks through a "pocket" created in the cheekbone. Once the implant is securely in place, the incision(s) will be closed.
Following cheek augmentation surgery you should expect an extended recovery process, however, visible improvement can be seen immediately. Typically bruising and swelling of the cheeks are noticeable for about 1 – 2 weeks. The cheeks will also feel tight and stiff. While a full recovery can take up to 2 months, expect to return to regular routines within 7 – 10 days after the procedure. Exercising can be resumed after 3 – 4 weeks.

Look and Feel Younger
Cheek augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery that can enhance the overall appearance of your face. Cheek implants can add lift and contour to the cheeks, which creates a more youthful appearance. This helps to diminish wrinkles and provide you with softer, smoother skin. If you are considering cheek implants, please schedule a consultation at our office in Delray Beach, FL so we can discuss how this procedure can be tailored to your needs and goals.
