Overview of

Cheek Implants

in Thailand

Known for being a safe and effective cosmetic procedure for facial enhancement, the main objective of cheek implants (or cheek augmentation) is to add more volume and definition to the cheeks via surgical methods. It involves the insertion of medical-grade silicone implants into the mid-face region to contour the area and provide balance to the surrounding facial features, improving one’s appearance and boosting self-esteem.

Pros and cons of

Cheek Implants

Pros

  • Cheek implants improve overall facial symmetry, with prominent cheeks detracting attention from the nose to make it appear smaller.
  • Facial contour will be substantially reshaped as volume is added to the cheekbones, enhancing one’s appearance.
  • The procedure produces no visible scars since incisions can be concealed within the mouth, making it seem as though you’ve never undergone cosmetic surgery.

Cons

  • Numbness may be experienced in the cheeks and bottom lip, which is often temporary but can become permanent in some cases.
  • A cheek implant can reposition itself and get shifted out of place, and there are rare instances where implants can be expelled from the cheeks themselves.
  • Nearby tooth roots can become damaged, and mouth infections may occur as a result of the procedure.
  • There’s a chance the implants may get rejected by the body as they are typically composed of hard silicone which is tougher than bone.

How it works:

Cheek Implants

It generally takes around 30-45 minutes for the procedure to be completed and is usually done under general anesthesia. Discreet incisions, which won’t be noticeable post-surgery, are made inside the mouth through which implants are inserted and precisely positioned. The exact area for the implants to be correctly positioned on the cheekbone is determined by the specific region of the cheek being augmented.

Preparation before

Cheek Implants

Pre - treatment

To ensure surgery is successful and that there are no complications, it is recommended that you:

  • Discontinue smoking and the consumption of alcohol
  • Discontinue any hormonal and herbal pills/supplements, as well as other medications (except those your doctor has deemed appropriate to continue taking) no less than two weeks before your surgery is scheduled to take place
  • Obtain surgical clearance from a medical specialist if you have any known diseases

Recovery after

Cheek Implants

Post - treatment

  • After the procedure is completed, you will be given special care instructions, including any dietary and physical activity limitations.
  • You may experience a temporary restriction in the movement of your mouth and lips.
  • You may also experience some discomfort such as swelling; however, the intensity will vary on a case-by-case basis. The effects may be much more severe if another procedure has been performed in conjunction with cheek augmentation.

Risks & side effects

  • Certain risks may include bleeding, infection, and unfavorable body reactions to anesthesia.
  • You may also experience or notice delays in the healing process, some nerve injury, and slight facial asymmetry. As such, this might require you to undergo revision surgery.
  • The skin over the implant may start thinning as a result of the surgery, and any trauma inflicted on the cheeks may cause the implant to be displaced from its original position.

The absence of these risks and complications can potentially mean that your cheek implants will stay in their proper positions for a lifetime.

FAQs:

Cheek Implants

How long do I have to be in the hospital?

Once you are completely awake from anesthesia, you are free to return home on the very same day treatment has been completed. You will be asked to visit your doctor for a follow-up appointment about one week after.

 

Why should I choose cheek implants over dermal fillers?

While there are many other viable alternatives to cheek augmentation and rejuvenation, the most popular treatments include cheek implants and dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers provide long-lasting results and are created especially for the cheek area; however, both fillers and implants have their own advantages and drawbacks and are suitable for distinct reasons.

  • Cheek implants are usually made of silicone (but are also made from other materials) and are placed in the cheeks through surgical means. They are permanent augmentations that alter facial contour and appearance, improving symmetry and providing greater definition to the cheekbones for patients displeased with certain facial elements.
  • Dermal fillers, in contrast, are solutions that only temporarily treat the effects of facial aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines, but have no effect on facial structures. The results from fillers can last for about two years, providing visible improvements that enhance facial volume with just one injection session. While they offer no changes to facial structures, fillers are an effective non-surgical alternative that improves your appearance by restoring youth to the cheeks via biodegradable injectables.

 

Am I going to have scars?

While cheek augmentation does leave scars behind because incisions are required, these incisions are only made inside the mouth, so you won’t have any noticeable scarring.

 

How long do I need to take off from work?

It may take at least one week of post-treatment healing before you can finally return to work. Since this procedure is performed on your cheeks which tend to be difficult to conceal, it is advisable to put off attending any special occasions for at least four weeks to allow enough time for any bruising and swelling to ease up. Your plastic surgeon will let you know exactly when you can resume your regular activities as normal.

 

How soon will I see results?

You will see visible improvements in the proportions and contour of your cheeks immediately after surgery, which will improve over the next couple of months until you can see the final results. You will experience some swelling around the cheek area following surgery; however, this is temporary and will eventually wear off in a couple of weeks.
