Cheek Augmentation in Charlotte, NC
Losing volume in the midface region is a common sign of aging. Other people may naturally lack volume in the face because of genetics. Dr. Waheed Mohamed at Carolinas Center for Cosmetic Surgery can restore lost volume and accentuate the midface region through cheek augmentation, a procedure that uses cheek implants to achieve the desired results.
Cheek augmentation is a safe and effective way to achieve fuller-looking cheeks for a more youthful appearance. If you are interested in a less-invasive solution to restore facial volume, dermal fillers are another option to consider. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mohamed carefully assesses your cosmetic goals and health to determine the right surgical options for you.
Benefits of Cheek Augmentation

Nonsmokers often have smoother procedures and faster recoveries. Keep in mind that cosmetic surgery should always be performed because you wish to pursue it, not to fill expectations set forth by others. Our team of experts will help determine the right procedure for you, and if you are a candidate for cheek augmentation, we will ensure you achieve lasting, pleasing results that you will love.
Cheek Augmentation Procedure
During your consultation appointment, Dr. Mohamed and our highly trained staff will explain the details of your treatment. As an oral surgeon, he is qualified to administer all forms of anesthesia and will help determine the right choice for your procedure. Local anesthesia, IV sedation, and/or general anesthesia may be used.
There are different methods to achieve various results for this procedure, including fat grafting and cheek implants. If a fat transfer is being used, Dr. Mohamed will make small incisions in the areas where fat is being harvested and again in your cheeks. These incisions are only millimeters in length. If cheek implants are being used, we will make an incision either inside the mouth or under the eyelid to insert the implant.
Injectable fillers are a minimally invasive alternative to cheek augmentation. They are inserted under the skin for cheek enhancement and to add volume. Learn more about dermal fillers at Carolinas Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
