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 AAAASF-accredited 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.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream. Very supportive with great bedside manner. This truly talented surgeon has your best interests in mind always."- H.V. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2019
"I Recommend Dr Schnitt - Dr. Schnitt and his staff were polite and knowledgeable. I had a filler in my lips and I was very happy with the results. Unfortunately I feel that the enhancement vanished quickly, I want to say three months at best, but I don't think this was the doctor's fault. It's something to keep into consideration, that fillers do not last a long time for some people, and especially in areas that move a lot like the mouth. Regardless, results were beautiful and very natural looking. I will probably go back to have it done again."- P. / RealSelf / May 01, 2019
"Acute attention to detail!! He is a perfectionist in every way!! His level of compassionate perfection meets no other match!! He is a superior vascular surgeon with a gift for helping kids. His work with operation smile has given him a skill and reward for keeping kids from having terrible scars. He treated my daughter, when her pediatrician suggested a dermatologist remove something from her scalp for a biopsy. The scar is unnoticeable in her hair & the results could have been drastically different. Dr. Drew has respectively passed when I've wanted and even insisted upon procedures. His policy is to improve and enhance! You'll never look weird if he is your doc!! Specialty: boobs, gender reassignment, vascular, nose, Botox, anything child related - from stitches to cleft pallet!!"- S.T. / Yelp / Apr 30, 2019

"I wanted to share my outstanding experience regarding my recent reconstructive surgery. In addition to being a highly credentialed, phenomenal doctor who has enabled me to feel proud of my body again, he is a wonderful person. Compassionate, caring, & always willing to listen, Dr. Goodwin's bedside manner is unparalleled. Despite my countless questions, I never once felt rushed during any of my appointments & he always answered me with kindness, patience, & sensitivity."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 24, 2019
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.
