Saggy cheeks are one of the most obvious issues on the face, especially with the coming of age plus the constant pro-long exposure to gravity. With age and gravity, sagging of the cheeks are very common, especially for people without high cheekbones.
Cheek implants procedure is also known as cheek augmentation. It is a procedure that involves inserting of implants into the cheeks area, from the inside of the mouth, in enhancing the cheekbones to make fuller cheeks.
There are three general shapes to cheek implants;
Some implants are made of silicone that can be removed later whereas others integrate with natural bone tissues and become part of the cheek structure.
A consultation is recommended with our plastic surgeon before proceeding, to discuss thoroughly the desired outcome and the most suitable implant to use.
A small incision is made inside the mouth, between the jaws and cheeks to insert the implants. Local anaesthesia will be applied for the procedure so there is no pain involved during the procedure.
*Some swelling and mild bruising is expected but clear away within days. Pain medications will be provided to control the pain from being overbearing. Daily routine activities will be able to continue about a week into the procedure.
