Who are candidates for Cheek Implants?

Clients in good health who wish to augment and shape the cheek are the best candidates for surgery. Those who most frequently have Cheek Implants are those who have lost soft tissue and the natural padding of fat layers or simply have a flat appearance to the cheek.

How does the procedure work?

A surgeon makes an incision in the crease under the lower eyelashes or inside the mouth where the lips and gums meet. The surgeon then forms a pocket in the facial tissue and inserts the implant.

Will there be any downtime?

Expect to resume normal activities within one or two weeks.

Are there any side effects?

There are certain risks and side effects associated with a Cheek Implant surgery. Though rare, infections around the implant, hematoma (clotted blood under the skin), implant displacement, temporary numbness, swelling and bruising are all possible.

What can be expected post-surgery?

After surgery, expect swelling and minimal bruising. Numbness of the cheek and mouth may occur but will dissipate over several weeks.

How soon will results appear?

Results are immediate after surgery; however, there is swelling in the weeks following the procedure. Most patients see full results after several weeks.

How long do Cheek Implants last?

Results are permanent and last a lifetime.

Is additional treatment necessary?

Cheek Implants are permanent and do not require additional surgery; however, follow-up appointments are recommended to track the patient’s healing process.

What are the limitations of Cheek Implant surgery?

Those who have a history of diseases or bone disorders and those who have taken Accutane® in the last six months are not candidates for the surgery.

Instructions before treatment:

The patient’s individual surgeon will provide specific instructions prior to surgery. There will be guidelines on eating, drinking, smoking and medications to take and avoid. Patients should make arrangements for someone to drive them home after the surgery.

Instructions after treatment:

Stay in bed with your head elevated for twenty-four hours after the surgery. Apply cold compresses for the next two to three days to reduce the swelling.
