Cheek Implants

Cheek implants are a cosmetic surgical procedure that is intended to emphasize the cheeks on a person’s face. Our comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need to know about the procedure, from initial consultation to post-operative care.

What is Cheek Implants?

Cheek implants, also known as cheek augmentation, are a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the cheeks. This procedure involves the use of medical-grade solid silicone to augment the cheekbones, providing more balance to facial features and boosting self-confidence. The surgery typically lasts 30-45 minutes under general anesthesia. One of the benefits of this procedure is that the implants are inserted through an incision made inside the mouth, minimizing visible scarring 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.
