About Cheek Augmentation

Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes cheek implants or dermal fillers to contour cheeks that have lost volume, shape, or definition. Typically, the cheeks begin to lose volume as a result of the natural aging process. However, some individuals may naturally have flat cheeks due to genetics or their personal biological makeup. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi is highly-skilled with the latest and most modern techniques to provide you with amazing results. At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, Dr. Kelishadi and his team will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan to suit your cosmetic goals and needs. When developing a treatment plan, our practice takes your facial profile and build into consideration so that results look natural and flattering. 

Ideal Candidates

You are an ideal candidate for cheek augmentation if you have flat or weak cheek structure and are in overall good health. Typically, patients who receive this procedure are over the age of 35 and have significant volume loss in their cheeks due to age or genetics. For severe volume loss, cheek implants are usually used (through surgical insertion) to restore cheek structure. However, if there is minimal volume loss, or if you prefer a less invasive approach, like dermal fillers, to add volume. 

Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation  May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious  about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband.  (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I  would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!

Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have met the SSK team.  I initially started with the med spa team at SSK and knew that I needed to do a breast augmentation consultation there as well.  From beginning to end, every single doctor/nurse and even Valerie at the front desk, involved in my procedures reached out giving clear instructions and also daily check-ins after my breast aug surgery.   Their patient care is beyond incredible.  The team gives you all of the instructions pre and post op, and they even go as far as giving you a sweet post op bag including the cutest, softest, coziest jump suit to wear into and out of the hospital on surgery day.  I am so so pleased with the team’s attention to detail, but more importantly, they are an exceptional care team you want and need!  Thank you SSK!  -Steph

I recently had a breast revision/augmentation with a lift by Dr Kelishadi and I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon! He is known as the King of Cleavage and definitely lives up to the name. His staff is friendly, professional, and prompt to answer calls and respond to emails. It was also super nice and convenient having Dr Sherry as part of the team helping with all the medications ordered. On my pre op visit, I was given a bag with all the medications I would need for my surgery and recovery. Dr Sherry would text and make sure I didn’t have any questions which was so appreciated. After my surgery, Dr Kelishadi would call and check in to make sure I was doing well. If I had a questions or concerns, Dr Kelishadi would promptly call and answer all the questions I had. He is genuinely a great person and an amazing Surgeon that I would highly recommend.

I recently underwent a transformative experience at SSK Plastic Surgery, having a tummy tuck, muscle repair, and liposuction in the flanks and back. Being a mom to a 10 month old, I was pretty anxious about this procedure but right from my initial consultation, I was confident that I was in the hands of professionals who truly care. Now, just 3 days post-op, I caught a glimpse of my results and I’m beyond thrilled! Dr. Kalishadi’s skillful work has exceeded my expectations.On the day of the surgery, the entire team’s kindness helped alleviate any pre-surgery jitters. Dr. Kalishadi went above and beyond by personally reaching out to check on my recovery. Overall, my experience has been nothing short of amazing, and I couldn’t have chosen a better place for my procedure. I wholeheartedly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery to anyone seeking outstanding results and genuine care. Also shout out to Dr. Sherry, Valerie and Brianna who were also lovely! Thank you all so much!

I recently underwent a breast revision procedure at SSK Plastic Surgery, and I must say that my experience far exceeded my expectations.  From start to finish, the entire journey was seamless, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results.  Here’s why I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kelishadi for anyone considering breast revision: Dr. Kelishadi is an exceptional plastic surgeon.  From the initial consultation to the post-surgery follow-ups, Dr. Kelishadi displayed remarkable expertise and a genuine care for my well-being.  He took the time to listen to and provided me with detailed explanations of the procedure.  The entire team at SSK Plastic Surgery was welcoming, friendly and professional.  They made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process, and their knowledge and expertise to my needs were remarkable.  One aspect that truly impressed me was the personalized approach they took throughout the entire journey.  I even worked with Dr. Sherrie for my hormones prior to surgery and needless to say I feel much better now.  I felt that she too was invested in my overall health.  Lastly, when it came to deciding the appropriate size for my revision, I had to place my trust in Dr. Kelishadi’s expertise and technique.  I discussed my desired goals with him, and he carefully assessed my body proportions, existing breast tissue and overall aesthetic balance.  Although I had initial apprehension about relinquishing control over to the size decision, I am thrilled to say that I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.  The size chosen by Dr. Kelishadi was absolutely perfect!  I would highly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery!

Procedure Technique

There are two approaches to cheek augmentation: cheek implants or dermal fillers. Your procedure will be dependent on your preferred method of choice. Both methods differ in terms on technique, invasiveness, and recovery.

  • Cheek augmentation with implants: Once your plastic surgeon has consulted with you on your specific cosmetic goals, implants will be selected for your procedure. Implants come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. They can even be custom made to specifically suit your unique facial structure. During the procedure, incisions will be made in either the upper mouth area or near the eyes. Implants are then inserted and the incisions are closed. 
  • Cheek augmentation with fillers: There are many dermal fillers on the market today and although they produce stunning results, each is unique. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon or aesthetic specialist will be able to discuss the various fillers they have to offer and how they differ from each other. Typically, Juvéderm is used to restore cheek volume. Prior to treatment, injection sites will be marked and the filler will be injected via a thin syringe. Other dermal fillers may be used in conjunction with this procedure as well. 

What To Expect

Your recovery time will vary depending on your procedure method. Typically, for cheek implant surgery, patients will be placed under general anesthesia. The procedure may last 1 – 2 hours and recovery usually takes 10 – 14 days. You should arrange for someone to pick you up after surgery and be prepared to take time off work. Vigorous activities should be avoided during your recovery period to prevent injury and all post-operative care provided by your plastic surgeon should be followed accordingly. 

Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers is less invasive then cheek implant surgery. Typically, the procedure only takes 15 – 30 minutes and recovery usually lasts 7 – 10 days. During this time, the treated area may be red, sore, swelled, or tender. However, these symptoms should subside within a few days.
