About Cheek Augmentation
Do your cheeks seem hollow or sunken in? Unfortunately, hollow or sunken cheeks can make you appear much older than your actual age. At DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery, we offer nonsurgical cheek augmentation to create full-looking cheeks. Cheek augmentation is completed with nonsurgical dermal fillers. In your initial consultation, one of our doctors will go over the benefits of the different types of dermal fillers to help you decide which treatment is best for you. Call our Palm Beach, FL office to schedule a consultation, and find out how cheek augmentation may help you attain a younger-looking appearance.

"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
"Dr.DeRosa is a fantastic surgeon with an amazing stuff. All procedures I have done in the office have been very successful and achieved the best results. Would highly recommend the office."- K.K. / Yelp / Dec 30, 2020
Is Cheek Augmentation For You?
The best patients for cheek enhancement are women and men who:
- Desire better contouring in their mid-face
- Notice volume loss because of aging, or have naturally hollow or flat cheeks
- Observe deflated cheeks because of significant weight loss
- Suffer from asymmetry in their cheeks from a congenital defect, a physical condition, or a trauma
Depending on your cosmetic goals, patients might prefer injectable fillers over surgery to minimize recovery time and reduce expenses.
Cheek Augmentation Technique
Before your procedure, one of our doctors will perform a thorough examination to develop a treatment plan that is ideal for your unique facial structure. During your initial consultation, we can help you determine which dermal fillers will work best for you.
At our Palm Beach, FL office, we administer injectable dermal fillers as an outpatient procedure and it only takes about 20 – 30 minutes to complete. Generally, we can perform the treatment the same day as your consultation. However, depending on availability, we might need to schedule another appointment at a time that is convenient for you. During your treatment, we clean and mark the injection sites around the middle of the face. Next, we carefully inject the filler into your cheeks and massage to fill the needed areas. After the treatment, patients can leave and may resume daily activities.
What to Expect
Following dermal filler injections, your face may feel sore or tender and have minor inflammation for about 3 – 5 days near the injection sites. We recommend using ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers to ease any discomfort. Generally, patients can see optimal results in 1 – 2 weeks. To maintain your results, patients should schedule follow-up treatments because fillers are a temporary solution. During your consultation, we will help you determine the best time to schedule follow-up appointments.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does cheek augmentation cost?
Getting connected with the right facial plastic surgeon can be invaluable. Depending on the type of dermal filler you choose and how many sessions you need, the costs of your procedure can vary. After the consultation and treatment planning session, one of our patient coordinators will go over the fee schedule with you. When it comes to a sensitive area, like the face, it's important to not only consider the price but select doctors who have extensive experience, education, and a keen ability for artistically placing fillers.
What type of dermal fillers do you use for injections?
When selecting synthetic dermal fillers for your cheeks, our team does have a preference. For many years, we have experienced reliable, consistent results from the Juvéderm product line of dermal fillers, particularly Voluma, for the cheeks. Voluma is made with an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the skin. When injected into the cheeks, Voluma can enhance your appearance by filling in sunken, hollow areas beneath the surface of your skin. Dermal fillers are a temporary solution for volume loss or for the appearance of having higher cheekbones. Patients love looking younger with fuller and more defined cheeks.
What if I have an asymmetrical face?
You might be surprised to hear that many people, even some models, have asymmetrical faces. It is natural to think that not having a symmetrical face is an abnormality. For patients concerned with facial asymmetry because of the difference in volume or height of the cheekbones, schedule a consultation with our team to learn more about treatment options. If you are considering a filler to make your cheekbones the same height or higher, please call today to schedule an appointment.
