Cosmetic surgery of the cheeks
Cheek surgery is a part of facial cosmetic surgery and can improve the appearance of the central area of the face through cosmetic medicine or cosmetic surgery. In some cases, your cosmetic surgeon will suggest reducing the volume of the cheeks through liposuction of the cheeks or the removal of Bichat’s balls in order to hollow out the cheeks.
In other cases, if there is a lack of volume in the cheeks, your plastic surgeon may suggest hyaluronic acid injections or lipofilling (reinjection of your own fat) or the placement of cheek implants.
