Dr. Yousefi offers cheek implants for patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Most of us aren’t born with high cheekbones, and as we age our faces tend to droop, further diminishing what little triangular shape we have. Cheek implants can help you achieve the attractiveness associated with prominent cheekbones. Cheek implants have restored many of our patients to a more youthful look.
How Are Cheek Implants Performed?
Cheek augmentation can be achieved either through the use of an implant via an incision inside the mouth or through the use of fat grafting. We now prefer fat grafting because it eliminates the need for a foreign body with its possible unwanted effects. Dr. Yousefi feels fat transfer provides a more natural result and can better be customized to the patient.
Cheek augmentation using an implant is performed under general anesthesia, IV sedation, or local anesthesia and usually takes around one hour. A wide choice of implant types is available for individual tailoring for your needs. The implants are inserted without any external or visible scars. Cheek augmentation is often done in conjunction with other procedures to improve the overall harmony of your face, such as a facelift, chin augmentation, or eyelid surgery.
What Can I Expect After Cheek Implants?
The cheek implant procedure requires no dressings or sutures. Taping is used for several days, and you will be on a liquid to a soft diet for the first few days. Bruising and swelling is minimal and subsides within a week or two.
