PATIENT REFERRAL PROGRAM   

Cheek Implants

Book This Package

1. The Operation

 

The surgeon makes a small incision near where the implant will be placed. The incision is made either in the crease under your lower eyelashes or inside the mouth where your gums and lips meet. Then, the surgeon creates a pocket in the facial tissue. The implant is inserted and sometimes stitched to more solid internal facial features that lie deeper in the skull. Then, the incision is closed, often with one stitched. The procedure usually takes 45 minutes to an hour and a half. It is commonly performed alone or in combination with forehead, eyelid, facelift, nasal or chin surgery. Sometimes, cheek implants are designed for reconstructive or rejuvenation. When the most common implant, silicone rubber, is used, supportive tissue eventually forms around the implant after a few weeks. Once fully healed, the implant feels like your normal underlying bone structure
