About Cheek Implants
While cheeks may not seem like such a prominent facial feature, their look can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance. When cheeks are flat or deflated looking, it can cause a patient to look aged and even unhealthy. Luckily, there’s a cosmetic procedure that can effectively treat flat cheeks— cheek implants. When placed by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, patients are left with a fuller, more youthful look. With a wide variety of shapes and sizes, Dr. Brissett will consult with you on the appropriate choice for beautiful, natural results. During a consultation, Dr. Brissett can also discuss the possibilities of using an injectable filler instead of cheek implants and can go over the pros and cons of both procedures in detail.

The best candidates for cheek implant surgery:
- Have naturally flat cheeks
- Have flat cheeks as a result of aging
- Have flat cheeks as a result of significant weight loss
- Desire a fuller cheek look
- Desire a longer-term solution as compared to facial fillers
What to Expect
Since this is an outpatient surgery, patients will be under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. An incision will be carefully made in the mouth, which will be placed between the cheek and upper gums. A specially made pocket will be created over the cheekbone after the soft cheek tissue has been properly elevated. Then, the plastic surgeon will insert the medical-grade plastic implant, which will be done for both cheeks. Afterwards, the incisions will be stitched up. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.
After cheek implants, a patient should expect some level of swelling and numbness in the treatment area. Though rare, some patients may experience bruising. Normal activities, such as going to work, can usually be resumed within a week. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first few weeks after surgery. As the swelling resolves over time, a patient can expect to see the full benefits of the surgery over the following few months. Cheek implants have a strong safety record since they are made with the highest quality materials. While cheek implants provide long-term benefits, a patient’s face will change due to the aging process, which could impact the look of the implants over time.
