Cheek Augmentation

A conversation about feminine facial features is hardly complete without an honorable mention for the cheeks. Just as the chiseled jaw is the realm of the man, cheeky cheeks belong to the female.

The classically feminine cheeks tend to be fuller and forward projecting. Because of this, Dr. Cardenas may recommend cheek implants for some Facial Feminization patients.

As an alternative, Dr. Cardenas sometimes specifies a fat infusion into the cheeks to make them fuller. This procedure involves a transfer of fat from another part of your body. That’s right - it’s your own fat! This option is particularly advantageous if you’re having liposuction anyway to remove fatty deposits elsewhere in the body.
