The aging process and things such as weight fluctuations and environmental damage can take a toll on our facial features, leaving some areas of the face devoid of volume and plumpness.

Take the cheeks, for instance. In many individuals, the cheeks may become sunken or flattened, with loss of facial definition, producing a bland and tired expression in the face.

For individuals who want to enhance their facial appearance, the solution to a more defined facial contour might be Cheek augmentation with cheek implants.


How Cheek Implants Work

How Cheek Implants Improve Appearance

Loss of volume in the mid-face region makes people look not only older, but also practically expressionless, as the face takes on a nondescript appearance as we lose contour and definition in this region. By inserting cheek implants and enhancing the definition, volume, and contour of the mid-face region, we can recover a more youthful appearance and restore a more alert facial expression.

How Cheek Implants Are Inserted

Cheek implants are typically inserted through tiny incisions in the mouth. In some cases, when the procedure is combined with other facial procedures, the surgeon may select alternate incision sites, such as placement through the lower eyelid or by means of an incision hidden in the patient’s hairline.


Recovery After Cheek Implant Surgery

Most patients report minimal discomfort with cheek augmentation procedures and many are able to return to office work after one week.

Most patients experience a moderate amount of swelling and redness around the cheek area and in some cases there may be swelling and bruising under the eyes.

The swelling typically peaks at about 48 to 72 hours following the procedure, and then gradually begins to subside naturally. Most of the visible swelling will subside naturally within a period of about 2-3 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can Cheek Implants Be Combined with Other Facial Procedures?

Yes, cheek augmentation is often combined with other facial procedures such as forehead or chin augmentation, in order to bring all of the facial features into proper proportion.

Is There Any Scarring After the Malar Implant Surgery?

Any scarring with cheek implant surgery is minimal, as the incisions used to insert the implants are typically tiny and camouflaged within your skin’s natural folds. In most cases, incisions are made inside the mouth, so there is no visible scarring.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
