Planning Your Cheek Augmentation Procedure

When you come in for your initial consultation with Dr. Greenberg, you will discuss your goals for treatment, and together you will determine a plan. During this time, you will be encouraged to speak frankly about what you hope to accomplish, and to ask any questions you may have regarding any stage of treatment. For patients who desire more volume in their cheeks, but feel hesitant about using implants, Dr. Greenberg can perform a cheek augmentation using fat transfer. This involves using liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body – usually the midsection – and injecting those purified fat cells into the cheeks.

Cheek implants come in different sizes and shapes, and can be customized for any facial shape to provide a natural-looking enhancement. Facial implants made from silicone do not integrate with the natural tissue, and can be safely removed later. Other materials, such as hydroxyapatite, will fuse with natural bone tissue and become a permanent part of your facial structure.

What to Expect from Your Procedure

After the scope of your treatment plan and cost has been finalized and your surgery has been scheduled, Dr. Greenberg will give you a set of pre-operative instructions. If cheek augmentation is being performed along with another surgery, the implants will be inserted through the incisions used for the other procedure. If it is a stand-alone procedure, small incisions will be made inside the mouth above the gum line, allowing Dr. Greenberg to place and secure your implants. There may be some temporary numbness or tingling immediately following your procedure, but this will gradually diminish over time. As swelling subsides, you will begin to notice the enhancements achieved with your cheek implants.

When performed by an experienced surgeon, cheek augmentation is a very safe procedure. Dr. Greeberg will conduct a thorough review of your medical history before proceeding with any surgical treatment, and follows the highest standards of safety throughout your surgery.

Face lifts are performed on patients as they age to restore a youthful look. In general, a face lift will lift your sagging cheeks, help to eliminate jowls, and remove the redundant skin. face lifts will correct and tighten both the skin and deeper muscular layers of the face. Unfortunately, nothing stops the aging process – not even a face lift, but a face lift can turn back the aging process by 10 years. Face lifts improve the visible signs of aging by removing the excess fat, tightening the muscles, and removing the extra sagging skin from your face and neck.

What are the Factors that Affect the Cost of Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation can be an effective way to add definition to your face and rejuvenate your look. If you are considering cheek augmentation, the cost of the surgery is often a factor when making your decision. The overall price of this cosmetic treatment can vary from patient to patient, depending on various factors, such as the type of surgical technique and anesthesia that are used. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg can explain the factors affecting cheek augmentation cost at his Long Island, NY, practice.

Cheek Augmentation Techniques
When you receive care from a skilled, experienced physician, cheek augmentation can be a great investment in your appearance. The biggest factor affecting cheek augmentation cost is the surgical method used.

During your consultation, Dr. Greenberg will evaluate your facial structure and talk to you about your cosmetic goals. This allows him to determine which technique is most appropriate. Fat transfer is the most conservative option.

You deserve safe, quality care when undergoing cheek augmentation surgery. Dr. Greenberg has performed numerous facial enhancement surgeries, with a consistently high level of patient satisfaction.

During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Greenberg will perform liposuction on another part of your body. He will then isolate and refine the unwanted fat cells, and inject them into your cheeks at varying depths to achieve a natural appearance. The cost of this method can vary since Dr. Greenberg can perform liposuction on a larger area of your body at the same time, if desired.

Alternatively, he may recommend cheek augmentation with implants. With this method, he will carefully insert silicone implants through inconspicuous incisions inside your mouth. There are many types and sizes of implants, and Dr. Greenberg will help you select the right implant for your goals. The type that you choose will affect the cost of your treatment.

Sedation Method and Location
Whether you select the fat transfer or the implant surgical technique will affect the type of anesthesia used. In turn, this will affect the overall cost of your treatment. Typically, Dr. Greenberg will administer local anesthesia for a fat transfer procedure.

If you are going to receive cheek implants, he will typically administer general anesthesia. General anesthesia is more costly than local anesthesia, but it will keep you comfortable during the more extensive procedure.

In addition, the cost of your cheek augmentation will depend on the location of your surgery. Since our Woodbury location has a surgical center on site, Dr. Greenberg can perform all procedures on-site. Your surgery will not need to take place in a hospital, which helps keeps your costs lower than they might be at other practices.

Choose an Experienced Surgeon
When researching cosmetic surgery options, patients are sometimes drawn to doctors who advertise prices much lower than other practitioners. However, it is important to choose a skilled, experienced surgeon. Cheek augmentation is an important investment in your appearance. With an unqualified doctor, you risk adverse side effects.

Dr. Greenberg works hard to keep costs affordable, while still providing the safe, quality care that you deserve. Dr. Greenberg has trained at the finest medical institutions in the country, and has been featured in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and the New York Times. Most importantly, he has performed numerous facial enhancement surgeries with a consistently high level of patient satisfaction.
