*If additional surgeries are scheduled, then the incisions made will serve more than one purpose. For example, if eye surgery will be done, then the implants can be inserted via the lower eyelid. If no additional surgery is scheduled, the implant may be inserted via an incision done inside the upper lip.


It’s expected that discomfort, swelling, and discoloration will be experienced after surgery. Smiling and eating for the first few days may be difficult. These symptoms and swelling will dissipate within approximately 10 to 15 days. Our professional team will help you during your recovery, detailing specific instructions to follow. Our staff will also schedule post-surgical visits so our physicians can follow your progress.



The cost of Cheek Augmentation in Austin will vary on several factors, such as which technique is being performed and what sort of implant will be used.

Cheek Augmentation FAQs

Is Cheek Augmentation painful?

Most patients will feel a stretched or tightened sensation in their cheeks following surgery. While this should subside in about a week, it can be easily managed with pain medication.

How many appointments will I need?

The average Cheek Augmentation patient will need to return about a week following their surgery for a check-up, and then 1 or 2 more further down the road. During your initial follow-up appointment, your doctor will assess the outcome of your surgery and ensure you are on your way to a healthy recovery. At the end of this meeting, you will be given a recommended time to come back, if at all.

How long until I see results?

While you will be able to notice some changes in your appearance immediately following surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising that you can expect. After about 6 weeks, your face should be very close to the final results if not completely there.

Can I combine Cheek Augmentation with other procedures?

Absolutely! The more common procedures that our Austin patients combine with their Cheek Augmentation are other facial rejuvenation surgeries, such as a Facelift or Blepharoplasty, but it can also be combined with other facial contouring procedures such as Kybella or Dermal Fillers. If you have any specific areas that you are looking to improve, please discuss them with your doctor during your consultation for their expert recommendations.
