Facial implants surgery often refer to cheek augmentation, although implants can also be used for chin augmentation. Facial appearance is determined by three principal elements: skin, soft tissues and underlying facial bones. If the structure of your face is disproportionate, for example the chin is retracted, the jaw is undefined or the cheeks are flat, it may significantly affect your image. Well-defined facial features with natural angles provide a structural balance to your face and just make you look more attractive. While any area of your face can be enhanced by implants, cheeks, chin and jaw are the most common places where this technique is applied. Facial implants provide balance to your facial features and improve the way you look.
In today’s world, the image that one transmits is basic. Feeling secure about our own appearance helps boosting self confidence and just feeling better overall. We do not only talk about beauty, but about proportion and aesthetics. Cheek implants provide harmony and can perfect the proportions of the structure of the face. Small or hollowed cheeks, or a lack of facial contour can be corrected by cosmetic surgery with implants. Cheek augmentation can help fill out sunken cheeks and improve the overall facial contour.
The procedure: The Cheek augmentation procedure is very similar to that of the chin augmentation. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia, or sometimes local anaesthesia with sedation. The surgery lasts about 2 hours. The incisions are made inside the mouth, on the upper sides between the gum and cheek. Through the incision the implants are inserted. The implants are made of solid silicone or rubber and vary in size and shape. The implants are put into position, and the incision simply closed with stitches.
The recovery process: The patient will have to stay one night at the clinic. Patients may have mild discomfort from bruising and swelling around the cheek and mouth, but this can be controlled with medication. Stitches are removed after a week and patients will generally resume normal activities after as little as 10 days. The swelling and bruising usually disappears after 7 to 10 days, and the result is clearly visible after 2 weeks.
