The cheeks are one of the most prominent features on our face. “Apple-cheeks” contribute to one’s beauty and youthfulness, but not everyone has them! The facial structure of some people gives them flat or hollow cheeks. Aging also affects the appearance of cheeks, making them look saggy and recessed. This can lead to loss of confidence and lack of self-esteem.
Cheek augmentation can add volume and firmness to the cheeks and improve the overall appearance of the face.
Cheek augmentation (also known as malar augmentation) is a cosmetic procedure that adds volume to the cheeks to lift them. This gives the cheeks a contoured appearance.
Most people choose to undergo cheek augmentation to get rid of saggy and droopy cheeks and get aesthetically pleasing cheeks. At Arra Aesthetics, cheek augmentation is done using facial implants.
Dr. Vasant Gholave has listed down the criteria for a good candidate for cheek augmentation. You are an ideal candidate for cheek augmentation if:
You are a healthy adult who has completed facial growth.
You are unhappy with the appearance of your cheeks.
You are a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking for the period prescribed by the doctor.
During the consultation for cheek augmentation, Dr. Vasant Gholave, Director of Arra Aesthetics, will explain the full procedure to the patient in detail. He will explain the possible risks of the procedure and the expected results to the patient. Dr. Gholave will inquire about the patient’s full medical history and any allergies they may have or medications they may be taking. He may also ask the patient to undergo a few blood tests so that there will be no complications during the procedure.
Dr. Vasant Gholave believes that for optimal results open communication between patient and surgeon is necessary. So he will listen to the patient’s desires and wishes and encourage them to ask all questions and doubts they may have. He will answer the patient’s questions and ensure that the patient undergoes the procedure with a clear mind and realistic expectations.
The following are the steps for cheek augmentation with facial implants:
Step 1: The surgeon administers general anesthesia or local anesthesia.
Step 2: Then the surgeon makes incisions inside the mouth or under the eyelid. This ensures that the scars are not visible.
Step 3: The surgeon creates a pocket in the tissue and inserts the implants in this pocket.
Step 4: After the implants are securely inserted, the surgeon closes the incisions with absorbable stitches or sutures.
After the procedure, the patient may have to wear compression bandages for some time to support the newly-set contour. Some pain and swelling are usually seen after the procedure, so the surgeon will prescribe some medication for the patient’s comfort.
The patient needs to get routine follow-ups with the surgeon after the procedure. During the follow-ups, the surgeon carefully analyzes the healing process and ensures that there are no complications. The stitches will be removed based on the surgeon’s analysis.
Like all surgical procedures, there are few risks associated with cheek augmentation. They are:
Pain and swelling
These risks are very rarely seen and our team of experts at Arra Aesthetics takes utmost care to make sure that the procedure is completed without complications and to the patient’s satisfaction.

But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics.
