A well defined and re-contoured face can be easily achieved with facial cheek implants. Adding volume to the mid-face area by inserting a cheek implant will give your face a more youthful and balanced appearance. Attention to detail in all areas of your surgical experience is of paramount importance to your surgeons and staff at AesthetiCare Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Orange County, San Diego, and Riverside. From your initial consultation, pre-operative preparation and surgical procedure, to your compressive aftercare, we place your safety and satisfaction ahead of everything else.
Have you ever marveled at the beauty of models and actresses? The hallmark of classic beauty for models has been their high cheekbones.
The face tapers down from two high cheekbones toward the chin creating an attractive triangular face. Most of us, however, are not born with high cheekbones. As we age, sagging and excess skin round out what little triangular shape we have, making us look older.
A simple cosmetic surgery procedure, called cheek augmentation, can give almost any woman beautiful high cheekbones. Working through an incision in the mouth or the lower eyelid, your surgeon will place an implant on top of your natural cheekbone. An implant can also be placed below the cheekbone to fill out hollow or sunken areas. Implants vary in size and shape. Your surgeon will choose the appropriate one for your desired facial contours. A surgical incision in the lower eyelid creates nearly invisible scarring.
You will be up and around the same day as your surgery, but you will need to take it easy. You may need to eat a soft diet for a couple of days. Any discomfort can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon.
To help create a more triangular face, chin augmentation can be done in conjunction with cheek augmentation to produce maximum improvement. Your friends probably won’t even know you’ve had facial implant surgery. They’ll only notice that you look more attractive with enhanced facial contours.
