Only a small percentage of us are fortunate enough to be born with prominent cheekbones and full, proportionate cheeks. And as we get older, many of us start to lose the natural volume in these areas, which can make our cheeks look hollow or unbalanced. If you aren’t satisfied with the way your cheeks look, cheek implants could be just the solution you’re looking for.
What Are Cheek Implants?
Cheek implant surgery, also known as cheek augmentation, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to add lift and definition to the cheekbones and/or volume to the cheeks. The surgery is often performed to restore lost facial volume from aging and improve the overall balance of the face.
Benefits of Cheek Implants
Cheek implants can offer several significant advantages for anyone who’s unhappy with the appearance of their cheeks:
- Increased cheekbone projection
- Fuller, natural-looking cheeks
- More balanced facial proportions
- Restored lost cheek volume due to aging
- Improved self-confidence
What Should I Expect During the Surgery?
The first step toward undergoing cheek implant surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weber. During this meeting, the doctor will give you thorough information about the procedure and your options. He will answer any questions that you have and put together a personalized treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Weber will also take a look at your cheeks and review your medical history.
Cheek augmentation is typically an outpatient procedure, and Dr. Weber will begin by administering either local or general anesthesia. He will then make small incisions inside the mouth. Next, the doctor will carefully insert your customized cheek implants and position them based on your treatment plan. Finally, he will close the incisions to complete the surgery. On average, cheek implant surgery takes around 60 minutes.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
You may experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness after your cheek implant surgery, and you will need to rest for roughly one week. After that, you should be able to return to work and your normal routine, but you should avoid strenuous physical activity for one to two weeks.
Am I a Candidate for Cheek Implants?
Adults who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their cheeks may be good candidates for cheek implants in Denver. Ideal candidates for the surgery should meet the following requirements:
- Have a desire to increase the projection of your cheekbones and/or the fullness of your cheeks
- Be in good physical health
- Have reasonable expectations
- Be a non-smoker
