High cheekbones are part of an attractive face for good reason. Cheekbones help with the way that light falls on your face to create soft shadows and highlights. If you have poor cheekbone structure, cheek implants may be right for you. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers cheek implants for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, and surrounding communities in Georgia.
What are Cheek Implants?
Some people are born with underdeveloped cheekbones while others lose facial volume as part of the aging process. In both cases, cheek augmentation offers a long-lasting solution. Cheek implants are available in several styles and sizes, so you can rest assured that your cheek augmentation will give you stunning, natural results.
Benefits of Cheek Implants
Cheek implant surgery results in facial symmetry, enhanced cheek contours, and greater facial balance.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Cheek Implants?
You may be a candidate for cheek enlargement if you have a desire and need for more prominent cheek contour. You may also be a candidate if you have small or significantly reduced cheek tissue and cheekbone contour as an inherited characteristic or as a result of aging.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Cheek Implants?
Cheek augmentation is a relatively simple facial surgery procedure, but the surgery needs to be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. Dr. Brothers is a board-certified plastic surgeon who values sharing accurate and candid information with his patients so they can make informed decisions about their cosmetic procedures. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Procedure for Cheek Implants?
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. The incision will be made at the top of your upper lip or just below your eye. Dr. Brothers creates a pocket for the implant in your soft tissue. He inserts the cheek implant and positions it to create the desired effect, either on or below the cheekbone. In some cases, the implant is secured with a titanium screw. There are usually no dressings.
How Long Does It Take to Perform the Procedure for Cheek Implants?
Cheek augmentation takes 30 to 45 minutes when performed as a standalone procedure. Cheek implants can be integrated with other procedures, such as a facelift.
What to Expect After Getting Cheek Implants
Initial swelling is usually moderate and gradually disappears over a month or two. Discomfort is mild to moderate and is controlled with oral medications.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Cheek Implants?
The scars that result from cheek augmentation are very small. It can take up to one year for the scars to fade.
When Will I See Results?
You will see immediate changes in your facial structure. Full results are visible after the swelling subsides.
How Long Will the Results of My Cheek Implants Last?
Cheek augmentation is a permanent solution for enhancing your natural cheekbones.
