Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances your face’s appearance with a symmetrical, proportional look.
We don’t often stop to think about what makes a face attractive, but the truth is that symmetry plays a major role. If your face is unbalanced, or if one side is out of proportion with respect to the other, it can make you look older than you feel. For many of our Beverly Hills patients, cheek implants offer the perfect solution to this kind of imbalance, and it’s a common component of facial feminization procedures.
A cheek implant is a medical prosthetic device that helps fill out a cheek, create the appearance of higher cheekbones, and bring more symmetry to the face. Implants are typically made of silicone or a polyethylene material like Medpor or Gore-Tex. Dr. Mashhadian places these implants with precision and in such a way as to reduce or eliminate scarring.
Cheek implant surgery only takes an hour or two, and you’ll recover within a week or so. The results are, however, lifelong. Dr. Mashhadian brings years of experience, a personable approach, and an artistic eye to his practice.
