Everything You Need To Know About Cheek Implants

Beautiful woman smilingAs you age, your facial tissues and cheekbones might deteriorate and become thinner, leading to a saggy face. You may also lose your natural facial appearance due to trauma, illness, or reconstructive surgery. Your face might become asymmetrical, and you might develop wrinkles, resulting in an older look. Fortunately, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon can restore your youthful appearance using cheek implants.

What Are Cheek Implants

Cheek implants are artificial cosmetic materials surgically added to the face to increase your cheek volume, resulting in a more youthful facial appearance. They help restore your facial balance and natural appearance. They make the face and cheeks look fuller, reversing the impact of aging, traumatic injury, or chronic disorders that lead to a sunken face.

Types of Cheek Implants

Most cheek implants comprise synthetic materials like medical-grade porous polyethylene or silicone. They come in three primary types, including malar, submalar, and combination implants.

Malar cheek implants go directly into the upper cheekbones, creating an angular and more pronounced appearance. Submalar implants add volume beneath the cheekbones, creating a fuller appearance. Combination implants consist of malar and submalar implants, helping augment the cheeks and the cheekbones.

What To Expect During a Cheek Implant Procedure

A cheek implant procedure is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. However, patients must first undergo various tests to determine their eligibility for surgery.

The operation takes about an hour and entails incising the surgical site before placing the appropriate cheek implants. Your OMS surgeon will then secure the implants and stitch the incision before allowing you to leave the clinic.

Recovery and Aftercare Tips

Recovering from a cheek implant procedure takes several weeks. Your OMS surgeon will provide you with aftercare guidelines to expedite recovery. You may have to use mouth rinses and stick to a liquid diet to aid healing. Follow-up visits are equally essential to allow us to monitor your recovery progress.
