Cheek augmentation is a surgery performed to enhance the beauty and appeal of the face. It is normally used for people who have flat or hollow cheeks who want to give their face contour and fullness. Cheek implants can be used to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing look for the face. Well-proportioned cheeks make the face look livelier, healthier and more youthful. There are about 40 to 60 different types of implants available in different shapes and sizes.
The best cheek implant for you would be determined depending upon the look you want to achieve. For example, some people want higher cheekbones while others want more fullness in the cheek pad areas. Cheek implants also have another beneficial effect- they make the jaw line tighter and sharper.
Most of the cheek augmentation surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis meaning no overnight stay in the hospital. It could be done under the effect of general or local anesthesia depending upon which is more appropriate for you. The surgery will start with the surgeon making an incision either inside your upper lip or inside your lower eyelid. Through this incision, the plastic surgeon will create a pocket in which the implant would be placed. This allows placement of the cheek without scarring. After surgery, you would have to take time off from work for a few days. You would experience some swelling and bruising which can be minimized by applying ice packs. You will begin to see results soon after recovery.
It is important that you are in good health before undergoing a cheek augmentation surgery; any dental problems may be reported to your doctor. Realistic expectations should be attached to this surgery- while it can give the face more definition it cannot completely transform the look.
Cheek augmentation is commonly performed in combination with a Rhinoplasty, Lip augmentation or Chin augmentation in order to create facial balance and harmony. Getting the right cheek implants can change your look drastically; a narrow and undefined face can transform into one which lots of definition and contour.
It is important to approach a certified surgeon for this procedure as to minimize the risk of any side effects such as infection, bleeding, bruising or scarring.
