Cheek (Malar) Augmenation

Why Augment the Cheeks?

The eyes and periorbital area, including the brows and cheeks, are the first facial features that most people see during normal face to face interactions.

The lower eyelid-cheek junction progresses from a smooth curve during youth and gradually separtes during aging as the cheek fat pad drops inferiorly. This process begins around 30 years of age.

Augmentation of the cheek (malar) region can easily accomplish a fresh, rejuvenated appearance with little down time.

Malar Augmenation

Cheek Augmenation

Malar Augmenation can be divided into 3 categories:

  • Temporary
  • Semipermanent
  • Permanent

Temporary Augmenation


Many Dermal Fillers can Augment the Cheeks

  • Hyaluronic Acid Based Products like Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft
  • Radiesse (calcium hydroxyapatite)
  • Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid)

Semipermanent and Permanent Augmentation

Temporary augmenation with dermal fillers is a conservative way to provide up to 2 years of results. Patients who are sure they desire longer lasting augmenation can choose from the following options.

Semipermanent (up to 5 years)

  • Bellafill (polymethylmethacrylate)


  • Facial Fat Transfer
  • Malar silicone implants
