Male and Female Cheek Implant Surgery in Houston, TX
HOW IT WORKS
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.

Can Cheek Implants Be Combined with Other Facial Procedure?
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.
