Changing Your Cheeks

We’ve all seen those gorgeous models and movie stars – and what is one thing a lot of them have in common? Prominent cheek bones! Having cheek augmentation can drastically change the look of your face. Read on for some more information about this procedure!

What is cheek augmentation?

Maybe your cheeks have lost volume and are saggy, or maybe you’ve just always wanted movie-star caliber cheekbones. Whatever your reasons for wanting more contoured and defined cheeks, there is help available. There are different ways to change your cheeks; your doctor can discuss all of your options with you and will be able to advise you which procedure you should have to get the results you want.

• Cheek implants are made of silicon, a permanent and safe option for reshaping the cheeks. Implants can last for a lifetime.

• Fat transfer is another option; in this procedure, fat is simply taken from another part of the body and injected into the cheeks. This is a more natural option than a silicon cheek implant, and because it can be injected a little bit at a time it offers the doctor a way to easily shape and place the fat. Because the fat comes from the patient, there is no risk of rejection by the body or a bad reaction. Eventually, the fat will be absorbed into the body, typically in about 3 to 4 years.

• Injectable fillers, such as Juvéderm Voluma, are another way to change the look of your cheeks – you will see results immediately. Another benefit of fillers is that if you aren’t happy with the results, they are easily reversible. A downside of fillers is that they are only a short-term solution, and additional injections are needed about every 2 years.

Cheek augmentation can add contour and volume to the face, making you look younger and accentuating the beauty of your face. If you are interested in cheek augmentation, contact the offices of Dr. Gary J. Price today for a consultation to see which of these procedures is right for you.

How to Recover from a Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Augmentation, Guilford, CT

Makeup is one of the best ways for you to transform your complexion and basically your entire physical appearance. If you feel like you are constantly having to contour your cheeks with highlighter and bronzer to help them look more pronounced, then it may be time to really consider getting a cheek augmentation. As a way to help add more volume and contour to your cheeks, a cheek augmentation can help you say goodbye to your daily contouring routine. After surgery, though, it’s important that you make sure that you know how to recover as smoothly as possible. But how? Let’s take a closer look and see.

Liquid Diet

If Dr. Price places your cheek implants on the inside of your mouth through small incisions, he may recommend that you stick to a strict liquid diet while your mouth heals. Why? Chewing traditional food can damage the incision site and make it more difficult for your mouth to heal. During your initial consultation, Dr Price will discuss whether or not he thinks it will be a necessary part of your recovery to go on a liquid diet.


Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may as well be your best friend while you are recovering from a surgical procedure like cheek implants. Why? Because they are a non-addictive way to get rid of pain, and inflammation. And the sooner your pain and inflammation go away, the sooner you will be able to fully enjoy your results.

Rest and Relax

We encourage all of our cheek implant patients to take at least a couple of days off of work. By allowing your body some time to rest and stay in bed, you can help to heal up your body’s natural healing response.

If you have cheeks that just aren’t as prominent as you wish, then it may be time to consider getting some cheek implants from Dr. Price. To schedule your consultation, contact us at our Guildford office and call us at (203) 453-6635.

How to Get Bigger Cheekbones

Cheekbone Implants, Guilford, CTIf you have thin hair, you can get extensions. If you have fine lines and wrinkles, you can get Botox. If you have a small chest, you can get breast implants. However, what can you do if you want to add more definition to your cheekbones? Let’s take a closer look and see.

Facial Fillers

If you are looking for a noninvasive way to get fuller cheekbones, then fillers may be the way to go. Hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are especially good at adding volume to cheekbones and other parts of the face. By making strategic injections, Dr. Gary J. Price can make your cheekbones look more prominent so that you don’t have to use quite as much highlighter when you’re applying makeup.

Cheek Implants

Another option that Dr. Price offers patients is facial implants. Facial implants are made of a solid form a silicone called silastic which helps to enhance the facial skeleton. During surgery, patients are placed under intravenous sedation. Once sedated, Dr. Price will then place the implant between the bone and the skin through small incisions made in the mouth and behind the cheek so that there won’t’ be any visible scarring.

Not everyone is born with perfect cheekbones. If you want to enhance your cheekbones, then contact our Guilford office today and schedule your consultation appointment with Dr. Gary J. Price. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Price will go over both of these options and help you determine which one (if any) is right for you. To learn more, contact us at (203) 453-6635.

Two Types Basics of Cheek Enhancement Surgeries

Cheek Augmentation Guilford CTWhen it comes to having a Kardashian-esque contoured look, it may take a little bit more work than just applying makeup. Here at Gary J. Price’s office, we offer a variety of surgical and non-invasive treatments to help patients get a more contoured physique including cheek enhancements. So, what are cheek enhancements and how are they done? Let’s take a closer look at two of the options we offer.

A Fat Transfer

Not all fat is bad— especially when it comes to your skin. Although you may want to get rid of the extra fat around your upper thighs or abdomen, having fat in your skin is what helps make you look younger, and it can also help define your cheekbones. During a fat transfer procedure, we will extract fat from a part of your body like your abdomen using a liposuction technique and then inject it into your face to help add more definition to your cheeks.


If a fat transfer isn’t something you’re interested in or if you’re looking for something different, then Dr. Gary J. Price may recommend dermal fillers. When they are injected into the correct parts of your face, fillers can help add more definition and contour to your cheeks— leaving you with the look you’ve been wanting.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price, he will go over both of these options and help you determine what cheek enhancement surgery is going to work best for you. Both of these options have their own unique benefits that may make one more appealing to you than another.

Once strategically placed, the fat will give your face contour and dimension you won’t believe.


As a noninvasive way to get a contoured look, you may want to consider getting facial fillers from Dr. Gary J. Price. Although primarily used for softening fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose, fillers can also be injected into the cheeks to add more dimension and volume. During your initial consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price, you will discuss your filler options.

Feeling Cheeky? 3 Ways to Fuller Cheeks

Cheek Enhancement | Dr. Gary PriceWearing a large amount of blush used to be the only way that women could enhance their cheeks. Luckily, times have changed, and women now have several options available to give them a pronounced, chiseled look. From injectables to cheek implants, this article will discuss three common ways that Dr. Gary J. Price can help you enhance your cheeks.


Did you know that injectables like Juvederm and Restylane can be used to add volume to your cheeks? By methodically injecting both the lower and upper portion of your cheekbones, Dr. Gary J. Price can give you fuller cheeks without you having to go under the knife. Lasting up to a year, injections give patients real results without the headache of undergoing surgery.

Fat Grafting

Depending on your body weight and overall health, Dr. Gary J. Price may recommend doing fat grafting to give you bigger cheeks. By extracting fat from certain parts of your body like your abdomen or upper thighs, Dr. Price will then reinject the fat into your cheeks to help add more volume. Depending on how well your body takes the fat and how well the extraction process goes, you should be able to enjoy your fat grafting results for about six months on average.

Cheek Implants

If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to help give you fuller cheeks without having to wear all of that makeup, consider getting cheek implants. Placed through well-hidden incisions, cheek implants are hard, solid implants that are surgically placed over your existing cheek bone. Once the implant is correctly placed, Dr. Price will then stitch you up, and you will be able to enjoy a more pronounced looking profile.

As you can see, there are a variety of options that you can choose from in order to get plumper, fuller looking cheeks. Leave your hot pink blush inside your makeup bag and consider getting cheek enhancements from Dr. Gary J. Price. To learn more about these and other treatments that we offer, contact Dr. Gary J.
