What is CHEEK IMPLANTS?
Also known as cheek augmentation, cheek implant is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is intended to emphasize the cheeks on a person’s face. The use of medical-grade solid silicone to augment cheekbones is a safe method of facial enhancement. This can provide more balance to facial features and improve one’s self-confidence. The procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes under general anesthesia. The implants are inserted through an incision made inside the mouth so visible scarring is not a problem post-surgery.
The cheek implants are most constantly positioned through incisions in the mouth. When executed with other procedures, alternative incisions may be utilized. The augmented specific area in the cheek determines where to properly position the implant on the cheekbone.
Medications will be administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The options include general anesthesia and other necessary medications needed during the surgery. Your surgeon will recommend the best option for you.
