Pros and Cons – Cheek Augmentation

By ·


  • Fat injections and cheek implants are more permanent.
  • Fat injections can also help smooth out the lines, create higher cheekbones and improve the complexion because fat is rich in stem cells.
  • Injectable fillers are a good way to test-drive what your cheeks will look like if you were to have fat injections or implants.


  • Recurring treatments are needed with temporary injectable fillers.
  • Fat injections may require secondary procedures


  • Semipermanent and permanent fillers may potentially migrate or possibly cause lumpiness and granulomas
  • Temporary bruising, swelling, and, in rare cases, possible infection
