A cheek implant is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used to enhance and define the cheekbones. This is done by placing a solid implant beneath the skin and over the bone structure of the cheek, which can help to create a more defined and sculpted appearance to the face.
Benefits of Cheek Implants
One of the main benefits of cheek implants is that they can create a more defined and sculpted appearance to the cheeks. This can help to improve facial symmetry and balance, creating a more aesthetically pleasing overall appearance. The implants can also be customized to fit each patient’s individual needs, ensuring that the final results look natural and proportionate to the rest of the face.
Cheek implants can also help to address a number of concerns related to the appearance of the face. For example, individuals with sunken or gaunt cheeks may benefit from cheek implants as they can restore volume. Cheek implants can also be used to correct asymmetry or other structural abnormalities of the cheeks or face.
Another benefit of cheek implants is that they offer long-lasting results. The implants are designed to be permanent, meaning that patients can enjoy their enhanced facial appearance for many years to come. While other non-surgical procedures such as fillers or fat grafting can also be used to enhance the cheeks, these options typically require regular maintenance or touch-ups in order to maintain the results.
Finally, cheek implants can provide a significant boost to a patient’s self-confidence and overall quality of life. Many individuals who undergo cheek implant surgery report feeling more attractive and self-assured following the procedure. Improved self-esteem and confidence can have far-reaching benefits in both personal and professional aspects of a patient’s life.
During the cheek implant procedure, your NJ ENT surgeon will make an incision either inside the mouth and insert the implant, which is typically made of silicone or another biocompatible material. The procedure is minimally invasive and are typically placed under general anesthesia, and on an outpatient basis.
Cheek Implants Procedure Recovery
Recovery from cheek implant surgery typically takes between one and two weeks, during which time patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Pain medication can be prescribed to manage any discomfort during the recovery period. Patients will need to avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for several weeks following the surgery to allow for proper healing.
