A number of different procedures can be used to alter your face, and a cheek augmentation is one of them. Cheek implants are commonly used to correct disproportionate facial features. If you have facial hollows or sunken cheeks, then you could be a good candidate for cheek implants.
Cheek augmentation involves the use of implants and can restore lost volume to your cheeks. A number of different implants might be used during the procedure. Your cosmetic goals are used to determine the type of implants that will be used for your face.
Aging, injuries and congenital conditions are some of the top causes for a loss of cheek contouring. Cheek implants can be very effective for correcting the issues of disproportionate facial features and asymmetry. Depending on your goals, cheek augmentation might be combined with several other treatments.
Are You a Candidate for the Procedure?
The ideal candidate for cheek augmentation desires fuller cheeks. It is someone who is looking for greater definition or who has cheeks that are disproportionate with their other facial features. A good candidate for this procedure should also have good health and hold realistic expectations.
How Cheek Augmentation Works
As the procedure begins, you’ll be given some type of anesthesia, which will make you feel comfortable. Cheek augmentation can take about 60 to 120 minutes, but if you’re undergoing several different procedures, the process could take longer. During the procedure, the cheek implants are simply inserted into the desired areas.
The Recovery Process
When the procedure is finished, you’ll be transported to a room for recovery. Your vital signs will be continually monitored, and you’ll feel the effects of the anesthesia wear off. You might need to wear a pressure dressing around your head. Tightness and tenderness of the face are two common side effects. Our team of experts will explain what you need to do to take care of yourself during the recovery.
Benefits of Cheek Implants
Whether you realize it or not, your cheeks have a major impact on the overall beauty of your face. If they’re too big or small, it can cause your other facial features to look out of proportion. Not everyone is born with perfect cheeks, so if you want to enhance your appearance, you should consider cheek augmentation. The procedure can give you fuller, defined cheeks and improve facial contouring.
