Cheek Augmentation Specifics
Anyone considering this procedure first needs to have a consultation with a professional. This will help determine if the person is a good candidate for the treatment. The patient will be asked what goals they have for their surgery, as well as given an explanation of the procedure and told the most likely outcome of the surgery. We always aim to give our patients a clear idea of what results they can expect before we decide whether or not the treatment is right for them.
What to Expect
Another good thing about cheek augmentation is that the implants can be tailored to every patient’s face. Even if they do not want implants, high cheekbones may be attractively addressed using other techniques. Cheek augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure.
In the case of implants, the surgeon creates a small opening on the inside of each cheek, inserting the implants and positioning them at particular points inside the cheek. The implants are secured in place, upon which the openings are sealed. As the procedure is performed on the inside of the mouth, it results in no visible scars.
The recovery is known to be fairly quick. Elevating the head and applying cold compresses helps to minimize any swelling. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for a set amount of time, but the patient should be able to resume work in a timely manner. After total healing, the patient can enjoy the results of the procedure for years to come.
