Cheek Enhancement

Cheek Enhancement in Sydney

Are you considering cheek enhancement in Sydney?

Do you believe that your cheeks are too flat or thin for the rest of your face? Did you know that there are multiple methods in modern facial plastic surgery to help the shape of your cheeks?

The appearance of the cheek needs to be considered in conjunction with the impact of adjacent facial units – the lips and lower eyelids, when considering cheek enhancement in Sydney.

As we age, some of the fat overlying the cheek bones slides down our face and the cheek bone loses thickness. This results in a hollow looking lower eyelid and heavy nasolabial fold. Because of this, older patients generally have better results from surgical options, whilst younger patients can achieve good results through more minor procedures such as filler injections.

Options that can be considered for cheek enhancement in Sydney include:-

•    Injections of dermal fillers to plump up the cheek
•    Implants that are attached to the cheek bone to change the shape, and increase projection, of the cheek
•    Fat grafting
•    Adding extra bone onto the cheek bones
•    Repositioning the fat pads of the face

Deep dermal filler injections are performed at Norwest Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery under local anaesthesia by Sydney Plastic Surgeon, Dr Gavin Sandercoe. The other options are surgical, and would be performed at an accredited hospital or day surgery by Dr Sandercoe, along with general anaesthesia administered by a specialist anaesthetist to ensure your safety.

Surgical options are usually performed in conjunction with another procedure, such as a face lift or lower eyelid surgery, so pricing is not included on our website as it varies widely. It is exceedingly rare for any of these procedures to attract funding from Medicare, or therefore, your health fund.

What does Dr Sandercoe offer?

During an initial consultation with Sydney Plastic Surgeon Dr Gavin Sandercoe and his team will determine what your individual circumstances are, so that Dr Sandercoe can explain what your options are for enhancing your cheek shape and which might work best in your particular case.

Dr Gavin Sandercoe is a fully qualified Specialist Plastic Surgeon with training in several different techniques of cheek enhancement in Sydney. Dr Sandercoe does not favour one particular technique – he will discuss your options and propose a technique that is matched to your needs. This will help you on the road to recovering with a great result!
