Cheek Implants

If you feel that your cheeks could use more volume, cheeks implants can be used to enhance the contours of the face. This procedure adds definition to the cheek area, while balancing other facial features for a more youthful appearance.

Why cheek implants

Fat pads that give the cheeks definition can move, flatten, and even disappear with age, creating a bony appearance that enhances the look of wrinkles and lines. Patients who have thin, flat cheeks or a sunken appearance can benefit from a cheek augmentation. Cheek implants add definition to the cheek area, while balancing other facial features for a more youthful appearance.

The cheek augmentation procedure

During your consultation, Dr. Campbell or Dr. Daniel Butz will examine the cheek area and choose the correct size of cheek implants for the look you desire. Often times, the final sizing of the implants will be done in the operating room using “sizers.” This allows our doctors to determine which size implant provides the most desirable enhancement.

During cheek augmentation surgery, incisions are placed in the mouth above the upper teeth. The cheek implants are placed over the bony portion of the cheek and are frequently secured with a tiny dissolvable screw.

Cheek implant recovery & results

Recovery for augmentation with cheek implants at Quintessa is typically mild. As with chin augmentation, slight swelling can last several weeks to several months. This can make the cheeks look over-augmented, but downtime is typically less than one week.

The fuller, more youthful appearance of the cheek area and overall facial contours created by cheek implants is visible immediately after surgery and the results last a lifetime. Due to swelling, final results may not be visible for several months after the surgery.
