Front Cheekbone Augmentation

Front Cheekbone Augmentation is a procedure done to create the perfect balance of the face.

The front cheekbone refers to the area under the eye and next to the nose. If this area is flat, it creates a dull look, resulting in an aged impression. In Front Cheekbone Augmentation, prostheses are used to create volume in the front cheekbones, creating a new dimensional, younger look.

MINA PLASTIC SURGERY’s Front Cheekbone Augmentation operation usually takes around 30 minutes done by Dr. Cha. Operation duration could be different depending on a patient’s health condition and the surgical situation.

The method of anesthesia is local anesthesia. After the surgery, you will stay in the recovery room for a while to wake up from the anesthesia and receive aftercares served by MINA PLASTIC SURGERY.

You can go back home on the day of the operation and will re-visit MINA PLASTIC SURGERY after 7 days of the surgery to remove stitches. The recovery time to return to daily life is around 7 days, which is right after the stitch removal.

Smoking should be avoided for 2 weeks both before and after the surgery in order to prevent any side-effects.

Recommended to

Dr. Cha recommends the Front Cheekbone Augmentation to those who are not confident with their cheekbones. Cheekbones being too flat may cause tired and aged looks.

It may also result in a face looking wider and longer, due to the lacking of volume in the middle of the face. By providing the adequate plumpness, clients will be able to obtain younger, livelier appearances.

How it works

After detailed examination of bone structure, Dr. Cha makes an incision in the mouth for the scars to not show.

Prothesis customized to patient's needs is inserted into front cheekbone.

Dr. Cha fixes the inserted prosthesis and sutures up the incised area.

Mina's speciality

Younger Impression

Just through voluminous front cheekbones, your tired and aged impression will be improved into a lively, younger look.

Natural Results

The prosthesis is customized according to the shape of the front cheekbone, level of flatness, and overall facial balance.

This also creates an incision inside the mouth, not leaving any visible scars. The recovery time is also very short, not affecting your return to any daily activities.

 Slimmer, smaller face

Voluminous front cheekbones create a relatively smoother side cheekbone line. It also adds to the overall face volume, creating a slimmer and smaller-looking face from any angle.


The bone structure and the outline are the ‘hidden cards’ of a beautiful face. They are less noticeable but play a huge part in making the face more beautiful. With the right angle, proportion, and symmetry, the bone structure and the outline of the face will provide a gorgeous canvas for other facial features to set in.

‍The ‘ideal’ proportion of the frontal face would be the ratio of 0.8:1:1:1:0.8. 0.8 indicating the space starting from the outer corners of your eyes, to where the face ends, 1 being each eye, and the nose. The desired vertical ratio tends to be 1:1:0.8~1, first starting from the hairline and ending right beneath the eyebrows, second from the eyebrows to the tip of the nose, and 0.8~1 being from the tip of the nose to the chin.

‍Dr. Cha of MINA PLASTIC SURGERY considers the proportion and balance of the face as his priority throughout the entire process – from the initial design to the actual operation. With his expertise built over numerous years of experience, Dr. Cha of MINA PLASTIC SURGERY will make sure he meets your needs, and leaves you satisfied with the result.
