Cheek augmentation plastic surgery can add volume and definition to depleted cheeks or cheeks that are not well-defined. At the time of the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient on various aspects of cheek implant surgery, including its approximate costs.
If the patient chooses to undergo cheek implant surgery with another facial cosmetic surgery, the overall procedure may become more cost-effective than if it were undertaken as an individual procedure. Patients can benefit from cosmetic surgery financing options that can make cheek implants a more affordable procedure for them.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides cheek implants to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
The Extent of the Procedure
Cheek enhancement usually involves the placement of pre-made implants. These comprise either silicone or other synthetic material. The surgeon may have to sculpt the implant depending on the patient’s unique facial structure.
In general, this procedure is undertaken under local anesthesia with IV sedation. This enables the patient to remain comfortable during the surgery and helps avoid the costs related to general anesthesia.
However, the surgeon may use monitored anesthesia care (MAC) if the surgery is undertaken along with another procedure. This will involve the fees of an anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist. The surgeon will perform the cheek enhancement with another facial surgery, such as a facelift or eyelift, if necessary. This will also add to the overall procedure cost.
Sometimes the surgeon may use FDA-approved dermal filler such as Juvederm, Radiesse, or Restylane to enhance the outcomes of cheek augmentation cosmetic surgery. This will impact the total cheek augmentation cost as well.
In comparison to a relatively less experienced plastic surgeon undertaking the procedure under the supervision of a senior surgeon, a highly skilled and qualified plastic surgeon may charge a higher fee.
Board-certified cosmetic surgeons typically invest in advanced surgical techniques, cutting-edge technology, pursue continuing education, adopt the highest quality standards and best practices, and follow the latest safety protocols.
A board-certified cosmetic surgeon would not compromise on the quality of care to offer reduced costs. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) advises patients to work with the best surgeon for their needs, and considerations such as the surgeon’s charges should only be a secondary factor in this decision.
In comparison to sparsely populated areas in interior towns, the cost of products and services in major metropolitan cities is typically higher. The real estate costs and cost of living affect the average costs of products and services in various regions.
Patients should understand that these cost differences and be aware that cheek enhancement surgery costs may vary between geographical locations.
The lack of liquid funds to pay for the procedure or credit history should not deter a patient from seeking cheek augmentation surgery. Patients can also consider professional medical care financing companies that offer loans at competitive interest rates for procedures such as cheek enhancement.
