Facial Cheek Implants (Cheek Augmentation)
Accentuated cheekbones are no longer an elusive feature bestowed only upon models and celebrities. You can get the cheekbones you have always coveted with cheek implants (cheek augmentation).
Cheek implants (cheek augmentation) can transform a flat face by accentuating the cheekbone, providing contour to the face and tightening the overlying skin. In doing so, a more youthful and balanced look is achieved.
Incisions are made inside the mouth so scars cannot be seen. The silicone implants are then inserted and secured over the bone with one or two screws. The implants are offered in a variety of shapes and sizes for perfect balance.
Cheek Implant (Cheek Augmentation) Recovery
Following a cheek augmentation, your cheeks may be sore and tight for several days. Because incisions are made inside the mouth, chewing may also be uncomfortable and certain limitations to eating will exist for a few days after the surgery. Most patients will be able to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks but strenuous activities should be avoided for 3 to 6 weeks. Further post operation instructions will be provided in your consultation with Dr. White.
We also offer chin, nose and lower jaw implant procedures. For more information, call or email us.
