Accentuating the cheekbones
Cheekbone enhancement

 Accentuating - enhancing the cheekbones 

Often a correction measuring just a few millimeters is sufficient to achieve the desired result. The doctor will help you make the right choice. During the consultation you can discuss which treatment is most suitable for you. 

We can accentuate or enhance / fill the cheekbones with:

  • Injectables - Fillers
  • Fat Transplantation: transferring the patient's own fat
  • Cheekbone implant - prosthesis

Accentuating the cheekbones: Injectables

Accentuating the cheekbones: InjectablesThe shape of the face, especially the bone structure determines one's appearance. As we get older the subcutaneous tissue starts to sag and changes the shape of the face. Filler injectables for the face can rejuvenate and help to improve the shape.

Your face regains its fluid lines. We can give your cheekbones more definition. We often also add volume to the jawline and the cheeks which recreates your beautiful youthful curves.

An irregular shaped nose or a particularly small chin can also be optically improved.

Injections - Injectables - Fillers

 We distinguish between two kinds of injectables (fillers) :

  • biodegradable fillers
  • non-biodegradable fillers

Biodegradable fillers are broken down by the body over time which means that their effect slowly disappears. The best known injectables used to accentuate the cheekbones are based on hyaluronic acid. The new generation of injectables (injections) are also used to fill wrinkles.

The advantage of biodegradable fillers is that the result lasts for up to two years, the treatment can then be repeated.

The advantage of non-biodegradable fillers is that you just need one single treatment, with a possible touch up. The result is permanent.

Fat Transplantation

Lipofilling, lipostructure - also called fat transfer or fat transplantation - is a very successful treatment for filling the cheekbones. We use excess fat from the stomach or the hips to give extra volume to the contour of your cheekbones.

Lipostructure is an improved lipofilling technique. Lipostructure (improved Coleman lipofilling method) is intensively used all over the world to improve the shape and proportions of the face.

The results of lipostructure are more predictable than lipofilling. The results of the treatment are also permanent.

Cosmetic surgery for lifting - filling the cheekbones.

The plastic surgeon implants the cheekbone prosthesis (implant) through the inside of the eye or the inside of the mouth so that there is no trace of any scar on the outside of the face.

The treatment is performed on an outpatient basis.

Filling the cheekbones

Implants - Prostheses

Operation and anaesthetic:

A cheekbone implant can be inserted under a local anaesthetic, but the patient often chooses intravenous sedation. The procedure lasts between one and two hours while you are sedated. A general anaesthetic is not necessary.

Recovery and aftercare:

Treatment to fill the cheekbones is performed on an outpatient basis. You can return home a few hours after the operation. After the procedure  a support bandage is sometimes applied which can be removed a few days later. Your top lip may feel numb for a while after the operation, but normal sensations usually return in the first few days. After treatment your face will be swollen and may be bruised. It is a few weeks before the final results are visible.  


Just like with other operations, there is always the risk of infection, assymetry or of the implant being rejected. Sometimes the implant has to be removed. If you experience any pain with fever during the days following your treatment you should contact us immediately.

We are available for you 24/7. 

Results for filling- enhancing the cheekbones

 Injectables - Injections:

A few days after your treatment you will see the definite results. If you choose a temporary filler then you can have repeat treatment in 1 to 2 years.

Lipostructure: Fat Transplantation:

The definite results are only visible 8 weeks after treatment. A second treatment may be necessary to achieve the desired results because the fat cells do not always grow equally.  

Implants - Prostheses:

The final results are only visible a few weeks after treatment, when the swelling and bruising have disappeared. After cheekbone augmentation with implants there is no visible scar. The results of cheekbone augmentation with implants is permanent. The cheekbone prosthesis can also be easily removed if necessary.
