CHEEKS

cheeks

Experience a transformation tailored to enhance your facial contours and help you look and feel your best.

From concerns about facial contour to the desire for a new profile, we offer various options for addressing midface concerns around the cheeks, nose, and mouth. At Wenzel Facial Plastic Surgery, we are committed to creating a personalized procedure plan that aligns with your aesthetic goals and enhances your inherent beauty.

As we age, bone structure in the cheeks may diminish, or we may gain fat in the face, leading to a less defined facial contour. Utilizing state-of-the-art fillers and implants, we effectively sculpt and enhance the cheeks for natural and impactful results. For puffy, rounded cheeks, we can reduce the fat between your cheekbone and jawline to highlight the bone structure in your face. Contact us to schedule your consultation to learn more about our midface procedures.

Buccal Fat Reduction

WHAT IT IS

Buccal fat reduction, also known as cheek reduction surgery, is designed to sculpt and refine the facial contour for a sleek, sophisticated appearance. This procedure specifically targets the buccal fat pads nestled deep within the lower cheeks, whose size and volume can contribute significantly to the face’s overall shape. Genetics often dictate the size of these fat pads, meaning that diet and exercise alone may not reduce their volume.

If you have ever felt that your face appears overly round or “chubby” despite a healthy diet and exercise regimen, buccal fat reduction surgery could provide the solution you’ve been seeking.

HOW IT WORKS

The Buccal fat reduction procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s comfort and the surgeon’s recommendations. Dr. Wenzel begins by creating a small incision on the inside of the cheek, ensuring no visible scarring. Through this incision, he can access the buccal fat pad and carefully extract the desired amount of fat to create a more balanced and attractive facial contour. The procedure typically takes less than an hour, and the recovery process is generally swift with minimal discomfort. Schedule a consultation to learn more about this fantastic option.

Cheek Filler and Implants

WHAT IT IS

As facial aesthetics professionals, we understand the crucial role that well-defined cheeks play in creating a balanced, youthful facial profile and the unique concerns associated with aging around the mouth, including developing wrinkles and losing lip volume.

Deep nasolabial folds and “marionette lines,” which often extend from the corners of the mouth to the nose and chin, are excellently addressed with fillers, as these areas may not see significant improvement with a facelift alone. Alongside fillers or implants, our experienced team, led by Dr. Wenzel, may recommend complementary treatments such as laser therapies, chemical peels, or dermabrasion to refine the skin’s surface and target fine wrinkles.

Cheek implants, also called cheek augmentation, offer a long-lasting and effective solution for patients seeking enhanced facial contours. They provide a noticeable lift, add volume to the midface, and help create a harmonious balance with other facial features. Beyond aesthetics, cheek implants can also contribute to a renewed sense of self-confidence, helping you feel more comfortable and self-assured in your appearance. Dr. Wenzel works closely with each patient to select the optimal implant size and shape that complements your unique facial structure, ensuring natural and flattering results.

HOW IT WORKS

We specialize in using cheek fillers as a modern, minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. This treatment utilizes injectable substances, commonly made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps maintain skin plumpness and hydration. When carefully and strategically injected into specific areas of the cheeks, these fillers can add volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance the overall facial contours for six months to two years with little-to-no downtime.

Cheek implants, made from biocompatible materials, offer a permanent solution for individuals seeking to add volume to the midface, balance their facial proportions, or correct asymmetry. During the surgery, a small incision is made either inside the mouth or through the lower eyelid. The implant is then carefully positioned in a pocket created over the cheekbone. Once the implant is securely in place, the incision is closed. As this procedure involves surgical intervention, it requires a brief recovery period. However, the outcome is a long-lasting enhancement to your facial contours, significantly boosting the cheeks’ volume and definition.

FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

Cheek Fillers: The longevity of cheek fillers depends on the type of filler used and individual factors like your body’s metabolic rate. Typically, results can last from 6 months up to 2 years.

Cheek Implants: Unlike temporary solutions like fillers, cheek implants permanently enhance your facial contours. They can, however, be surgically removed or replaced if necessary.

Buccal Fat Reduction: The results of buccal fat pad removal are permanent. It can take up to four months to see the final results. However, if a significant amount of weight is gained in the future, the cheeks may plump up again.

The recovery period can vary depending on the specific procedure and the patient’s healing process. Generally, most patients can return to normal activities within one to two weeks following surgery. Swelling and bruising typically subside within the first week, while complete healing may take several weeks.

Our team provides each patient with comprehensive post-operative care instructions and support to ensure a smooth recovery.

Dr. Wenzel is highly skilled in placing incisions in discreet locations to minimize visible scarring. Over time, these scars typically fade and become less noticeable.

Ideal candidates for cheek fillers or implants are individuals who wish to enhance the volume or definition of their cheekbones. This could be due to age-related volume loss or a natural lack of prominence in this area.
