Looking to Get High, Prominent Cheekbones? These Procedures Could Be Right for You

The shape and prominence of our cheekbones play a pivotal role in defining the overall look of our faces, influencing perceptions of beauty and youthfulness. Whether you want to accentuate high cheekbones or boost low cheekbones, understanding the impact they have on appearance and the enhancement options available can lead to a more balanced facial profile. Let’s explore how to achieve those coveted prominent cheekbones through both non-surgical and surgical methods.

High vs Low Cheekbones and Their Impact on Appearance

High Cheekbones

High cheekbones are often celebrated for adding definition and character to the face, particularly in women with high cheekbones. Positioned just below the eyes, they can give the face a more angular, defined look, contributing to a perception of attractiveness and vitality. High cheekbones can also help in maintaining a youthful appearance by preventing sunken cheeks and minimizing signs of aging.

Low Cheekbones

Low cheekbones are located nearer to the bottom of the nose and may give the face a fuller or rounder appearance. This facial feature can lead to a less defined look as you age, often resulting in a desire for enhancement. Addressing low cheekbones through cosmetic procedures can offer a more lifted, youthful facial contour.

Cheek Fillers

Cheekbone filler is a popular, minimally invasive option for those looking to enhance their appearance without undergoing surgery. These fillers can also restore volume to sunken cheeks, delivering defined cheekbones and rejuvenating your facial appearance.


Fillers offer immediate results and minimal downtime, allowing you to experiment with your appearance without permanent changes.


Options like Juvéderm® Voluma and Restylane® Contour are tailor-made for cheek augmentation, providing an effective route to refine your cheekbones. Juvéderm® Skinvive™ is another filler that can highlight your cheeks by enhancing your glow.

Compared to surgical options, fillers are less invasive, involve no significant downtime, and offer immediate visibility of results.


Minor risks include temporary bruising, swelling, or asymmetry.

Surgical Procedures

For those seeking more permanent enhancements, several surgical options are available:

  • Buccal Fat Removal – reduces cheek volume by removing buccal fat for a more contoured facial profile.
  • Cheek Implants – insert implants to enhance the cheekbones.
  • Facial Lifting and Contouring Procedures – offer comprehensive facial rejuvenation and structural enhancement.
