In brief: Cheek Augmentation
A cheek implant can enhance cheeks by giving them a more prominent and sculpted look and by restoring a youthful fullness to this area.
Cosmetic fillers or stem-cell enriched fat grafts can restore volume to this area.

In brief: Cheek Augmentation
Cheek augmentation involves either injection of facial fillers, your own fat (liposuctioned from elsewhere on your body), or surgical placement of a custom implant over your cheek bone.
The result can produce larger cheeks, particularly along the sides of your face, thereby creating a more heart-shaped or triangular-shaped face. This is cosmetically desirable.

In brief: Generally fillers
As we age it is common to lose some volume in our face, including the cheeks.
Various fillers are commonly used to restore volume to the cheeks- this is cheek augmentation. Common fillers for this area include restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, Radiesse and others. Sometimes one can have their own fat injected in this area. There is also surgical augmentation, which uses various implants.
