About Cheek Augmentation
If you want to improve the hollow features of your mid-face, we can help at Inspire Aesthetics. 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.

"My first experience with Inspire in Fort Lauderdale was AMAZING! The precautions they are taking in this new normal made me feel safe and at ease. Vanessa and Erika greeted me when I arrived and they were organized, courteous, and professional. Chris, the Nurse Practitioner, took his time and walked me through every step of the procedure, making sure to address any questions I had. His passion and attention to detail came through in my amazing results. Without a doubt, Inspire Fort Lauderdale is my new home for all my aesthetic needs!"- R.T. / Google / Jun 25, 2020
"As an RN for over 28years, you can bet I did my research before I felt comfortable even meeting Dr Goodwin and his staff at Inspire. After having multiple medical surgeries, I was in need of some serious repair. I had a major double-procedure performed by Dr Matthew Goodwin. I appreciated the honest approach to seeing what was possible regarding my body and what I wanted it to look like post-op. Dr. Goodwin never made me feel pressured to make a decision regarding my plan of surgical enhancement/correction. Kami became my go-to person for questions, worries, fears, and support...at all hours! At the start of my journey to surgery, I was shown before/after pictures, options, and realistic outcomes. The day of surgery was planned out step by step and was flawless. Anesthesia called me the night before to discuss his plan and my concerns. I was introduced to the surgical nurses and Dr Schnitt, who assisted. My husband was kept apprised of my progress thru-out the day. Recovery was painless...from what I can remember....lol. Dr Goodwin called me later that evening to check on me. Since my procedures were rather involved, my post-op visits stretched out over 2 months...but there was never any issues that weren't immediately addressed and resolved. Dr Goodwin has always provided a high level of care for me during each follow up. They have always answered the phone and scheduled me ASAP! I have returned to Inspire (over 1 1/2 years now) and still feel welcome. I can comfortably recommend Dr Goodwin and his team because not only did he do an amazing job with my procedure, his follow up care continues. The entire team is top notch and all deserve a great deal of credit for their work. They all made me feel very comfortable from start to finish. I look forward to continuing to work with Inspire in my future. Thanks! Carisa"- C.S. / Google / Jun 25, 2020

Best Candidates for Cheek Augmentation
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 with Cheek Augmentation
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.
Cheek Augmentation Other Considerations
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.
