Cheek Implants or Fillers? By Dr. Suzanne Yee on July 27, 2009

If you lack definition in your cheeks, then you might have considered cheek augmentation. There are two solutions to cheek augmentation; dermal fillers (non-surgical) or cheek implants (surgical). If you want to go the non-surgical route, then fillers are the answer. Fillers can provide an almost immediate result and have little or no down time. The most common fillers used for cheek augmentation are Radiesse and Perlane. Both of these fillers provide fullness, along with smoothness and can last up to a year. However, fillers are temporary and can become costly in the long run. The surgical answer to cheek augmentation are cheek implants. These implants are permanent and can help define your cheek bones and balance the appearance of your face. Cheek implants come in various shapes and sizes and your doctor can help choose the ones that suite you best. If you are on the fence about permanent cheek augmentation, then fillers are the answer. If you have desired high cheek bones and are ready to take the plunge, the cheek implants are your best bet. Defined cheek bones have been a sign of iconic beauty since the beginning of time, just look at Cher!
