Cheek Implant / Lift / Augmentation Bellevue & Seattle

Did you know that a cheek augmentation can make you feel your face shine and bring the light back to your face? Aren’t you tired of looking withdrawn or have people ask you whether you had enough sleep? You may just need to add some volume in your cheeks and lower eyelid area with a cheek lifting, cheek implant and/or cheek augmentation.

These changes can markedly enhance your beauty in a short period of time. Many positive things seem to happen to people with beauty. Why is this? Dr. Young is well known for his knowledge of facial beauty. His peers agreed that his theory and research on beauty was significant and awarded him the distinguished Sir Harold Delf Gillies Award.

Dr. Young continues to study the subject of beauty and its impact on our lives. He has published numerous chapters in textbooks and in peer-reviewed journal articles on his theory on beauty called the Circles of Prominence. Applying the concepts of his theory on beauty, Dr. Young can restore youthful cheek contours and reshape cheeks that are out of proportion to the face making you look younger in a natural way.

Dr. Young’s research indicates that as early as our mid-thirties, we start to notice deepening smile lines, a sign that our cheek fat pads are beginning to descend. Other facial changes begin to happen: lower eyelid bags, cheek hollowing and sagging and having the middle part of your face start to drop. As we age, our bones diminish in size and we lose collagen and facial fat. These anatomical changes results in those sunken or dropped cheeks creating deeper lines around the mouth and having a more tired appearance.

Tailored Treatments

There are many options with a cheek implant that can be tailored just for you. Dr. Young will choose the shape and size to highlight a portion of the mid-face, emphasize or create high cheekbones or fill a sunken area beneath the cheekbones. Aging and exercise, especially jogging, can produce fat atrophy in the cheek resulting in a sunken and drawn appearance.

Cheek implants can provide subtle or dramatic results based on your facial structure and desire. Minimal incisions are needed and no dressings are typically required. Dr. Young will tailor an approach that is specifically for you. He has many years of training and performing these types of procedures, including over 1,200 face, neck, and eye lifts and over 3,000 other cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries.

Dr. Young and his team at Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery can help you deal with some of these issues that are happening in your face. We can provide different options for treatment, including the YoungVitalizer, our product that rejuvenates your cheek and other areas of your face.

Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Young will select the treatment that will lead to the best possible results from inject-able fillers, cheek lift, permanent cheek implants, fat transfers, the Young Vitalizer and laser resurfacing.

Types of Treatments

Here are some of the treatments that are available to you.

Injectable Dermal Fillers

Such as Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Juvéderm that can last up to eighteen months or longer depending on the product and your body’s metabolism.

Cheek Lift or Mid-face Lift

Simple procedure designed to lift a sagging cheek and return it to its natural youthful position. This procedure also diminishes smile lines. The incision can be made above the ear within the hair, under the eye or within the mouth.

Even Superior Option

Fat grafting, transfer and injections into the cheek area. When we age, we lose volume in the face and replacing that volume is the most natural way of restoring the youthfulness in the cheek and mid-facial area. Fat is transferred into the cheeks and lower eyelid area to restore lost volume. The attractive element of fat grafting is that you only require small puncture holes to carry out fat injections and avoid the long incisions required for more traditional types of surgeries. These entry holes heal like tiny mosquito bites.

YoungVitalizer

An incision-less facelift alternative. You can look and feel great with this new technique that Dr. Young developed based on his treatment of over 1200 face and neck lifts. This minimally invasive procedure entails the use of no facial incisions, no general anesthesia, and no drains. The YoungVitalizer is associated with much less discomfort than traditional procedures.

Laser Resurfacing

Another form of treatment that can tighten the skin in the cheek and the rest of the face. This approach has a lifting effect. Laser resurfacing can improve sun damage, sun spots, wrinkles, skin texture, and even decrease the risk of cancer.

“My goal was to find a method to bring back a person’s natural youthfulness without the operated, unnatural look and that is why I have my patients bring in photos of them when they were age 5 to 30. My YoungVitalizer helps restore natural and youthful contours they haven’t seen in years.”
