A cheek augmentation improves the contour of the cheeks by placing an implant over the bone of the cheek. It can be used to create higher, more prominent cheekbones, or to augment a hollow in another area of the cheek. During the procedure, a cheek implant is positioned through an incision in the mouth under the upper lip. Most of the post-operative swelling usually lasts between 10-14 days. Once swelling has resolved, the implant will look natural and complement your features.
