There are many reasons for someone to consider getting cheek implants. As we age, the skin naturally tends to lose volume, which can leave the face looking gaunt and older. There are a number of other procedures to consider as well, such as a rhinoplasty. The nose, cheeks and chin all play big roles in determining the overall balance of a person’s face.
Dr. Fred Bressler is a particularly well-known plastic surgeon due to his expertise in this area of practice. Consult with him to determine what options best suit your needs. Sometimes, surgery and implantation can be combined with dermal fillers or additional rhinoplasty. Incisions are made within the mouth to insert the cheek implant and hide external scarring. Typically, recovery lasts about two weeks.
