Several cosmetic surgery procedures are frequently performed these days. Nowadays, cheek implants are also gaining popularity. Having cheek implants is not a complex cosmetic procedure but it can significantly improve your facial appearance. Cheek implants define cheeks by adding volume and contouring them. Individuals with weak cheek structure, lost cheek contour, a narrow or flat face can benefit from cheek augmentation surgery. Although it is a simple procedure yet being an elective procedure, people think thousands of times before opting for it.
One of the most important factors considered when deciding whether or not to get cheek implants is the cost. There is no specific cost of cheek implants. It varies from patient to patient, surgeon to surgeon and region to region depending on various factors. But even though it varies, generally the cost of cheek implants lies somewhere between $2000 and $3000. Similarly, the cost of cheek augmentation surgery also varies but generally, it can range from $2,400 to $5,000. The cost of cheek implants may be reduced if it is combined with other facial cosmetic surgeries. Some general factors that play part in increasing or decreasing the overall cost of cheek augmentation surgery are given below.
The surgeon’s fee is the main part of the total cost of the procedure. It can vary from surgeon to surgeon depending on their expertise. A board-certified plastic surgeon with considerable experience in this field will charge you more as compared to the newer ones.
An anesthesiologist is also as important for the procedure as the surgeon. Moreover, anesthesia charges depend on the type of anesthesia used. The procedure can either be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
The cost of the procedure also depends on the place where you are having the procedure. If you have selected your surgeon’s office for it, it will be cost-effective as compared to a hospital.
Cheek implants are available in various types varying in sizes, shapes, and costs. The cost of implants is included in the overall cost of the procedure.
The cost of cheek augmentation is greatly influenced by the geographic location also. If you are having surgery in an area considered as the hub of cosmetic procedures, it will be very costly. On the other hand, having surgery in an area that has other facilities at affordable rates will be very cost-effective.
The Chosen Procedure
Cheek augmentation can be done using various techniques and the cost for every technique will be different. The overall cost of the surgery will also vary depending on the technique selected for the procedure.
Besides the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, and facility, there are some additional charges also. These include:
- Lab tests– lab tests are performed before the procedure
- Medications– the surgeon prescribes medication before and after the surgery
These additional charges also contribute to the entire cost of the procedure.
