What are the Factors that Affect the Cost of Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation can be an effective way to add definition to your face and rejuvenate your look. If you are considering cheek augmentation, the cost of the surgery is often a factor when making your decision. The overall price of this cosmetic treatment can vary from patient to patient, depending on various factors, such as the type of surgical technique and anesthesia that are used. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg can explain the factors affecting cheek augmentation cost at his Long Island, NY, practice.
Cheek Augmentation Techniques
When you receive care from a skilled, experienced physician, cheek augmentation can be a great investment in your appearance. The biggest factor affecting cheek augmentation cost is the surgical method used.
During your consultation, Dr. Greenberg will evaluate your facial structure and talk to you about your cosmetic goals. This allows him to determine which technique is most appropriate. Fat transfer is the most conservative option.
You deserve safe, quality care when undergoing cheek augmentation surgery. Dr. Greenberg has performed numerous facial enhancement surgeries, with a consistently high level of patient satisfaction.
During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Greenberg will perform liposuction on another part of your body. He will then isolate and refine the unwanted fat cells, and inject them into your cheeks at varying depths to achieve a natural appearance. The cost of this method can vary since Dr. Greenberg can perform liposuction on a larger area of your body at the same time, if desired.
Alternatively, he may recommend cheek augmentation with implants. With this method, he will carefully insert silicone implants through inconspicuous incisions inside your mouth. There are many types and sizes of implants, and Dr. Greenberg will help you select the right implant for your goals. The type that you choose will affect the cost of your treatment.
Sedation Method and Location
Whether you select the fat transfer or the implant surgical technique will affect the type of anesthesia used. In turn, this will affect the overall cost of your treatment. Typically, Dr. Greenberg will administer local anesthesia for a fat transfer procedure.
If you are going to receive cheek implants, he will typically administer general anesthesia. General anesthesia is more costly than local anesthesia, but it will keep you comfortable during the more extensive procedure.
In addition, the cost of your cheek augmentation will depend on the location of your surgery. Since our Woodbury location has a surgical center on site, Dr. Greenberg can perform all procedures on-site. Your surgery will not need to take place in a hospital, which helps keeps your costs lower than they might be at other practices.
Choose an Experienced Surgeon
When researching cosmetic surgery options, patients are sometimes drawn to doctors who advertise prices much lower than other practitioners. However, it is important to choose a skilled, experienced surgeon. Cheek augmentation is an important investment in your appearance. With an unqualified doctor, you risk adverse side effects.
Dr. Greenberg works hard to keep costs affordable, while still providing the safe, quality care that you deserve. Dr. Greenberg has trained at the finest medical institutions in the country, and has been featured in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and the New York Times. Most importantly, he has performed numerous facial enhancement surgeries with a consistently high level of patient satisfaction.
