BlogReady to Get Cheeky? Let’s Talk Cheek Implants

Why Cheek Implants Could be for You

When our clients ask us about our cheek implants and why these are the best options, before we answer that question we perform a full facial analysis that will reveal the answer. For many of our patients that suffer from sunken in cheeks due to tissue deterioration and those that never had the bone structure to begin with, we tell them at they have options to improve the fullness and lifting of the cheekbones. But cheek implants are long lasting and can be individually crafted for your natural bone and tissue structure. You will work with your surgeon to craft the size and volume of the implant to fit your ideal look best. Our patients love the control their cheeks now have on their face, rather than previously sitting flat and small. If you have significant tissue loss or bone loss, we recommend these cheek implants for you. The procedure doesn’t take long once the implant has been created. 30-minutes is our usual amount of time that we take to apply these cheek implants. We can do this by going through the interior of your mouth or just below the eye. The implant is then placed gently and securely into a special pocket created by your physician that will sit on the bone to enhance your profile. If you’ve had a facelift or will have one, this could rejuvenate your lift and add some beautiful symmetry to the result. You can add this to your facelift procedures at South Shore Plastic Surgery.

Injectables Can’t Give You the Same Volume

Now, injectables are an excellent way to help regenerate old cells and base fibers in the skin that can keep it young and refreshed. However, these dermal filler injections can do some lift, but it’s not to the degree of what you would see with these cheek implants. Plus, they don’t guarantee that you’ll see exactly the shape that you want. Fillers are not isolated to one specific place, but they tend to look more natural because they’re a serum injection, meaning that cheek implants will have a defined shape that will last for years to come. Dermal filler injectables for the cheeks only lasts so long. So if you’re looking for the right kind of definition using something that lasts much longer than a few months, you want to think about cheek implants. Cheek implants are done in the same amount of time that these injectables take and our clients love them.
