Cheek Implant

Table of Contents

After the fracture and spontaneous healing of the cheekbones, an unaesthetic, hollow appearance may appear in this area, which can be improved with an effective cheek implant. This appearance is not always due to the breakage of the cheekbones, but sometimes due to rapid weight gain or the aging process. The collapse of the area where the cheekbones are located causes the soft tissues on the bone to sag. This leads to an unhappy and weak facial expression. With a cheek implant, this image can be eliminated.

Due to the weak cheekbones on both sides of the face, between the nose and the ear, the appearance of the face can be sunken, causing people to feel that they are not beautiful and have problems with self-confidence. Therefore, a cheek implant should be considered a necessity. So what is cheek implant and how is it performed?

What is a Cheek Implant?

The cheek implant provides successful and effective results on the face. The triangular area between the chin and the two cheekbones is one of the most important elements that make the face look younger. However, when the cheekbones are depressed and weak, this triangular shape on the face disappears and so does the youthful appearance. In such cases, the cheekbones need to be enlarged and defined.

There are several techniques to enlarge the cheekbones. The most common technique to overcome these problems is the use of facial prostheses, namely silicone implants. These prostheses, which are also used in the application of cheek implants, are attached to the bones. This gives the cheekbones a more prominent appearance. Although methods such as hyaluronic acid or oil injections are also used to clarify the cheekbones, the results of cheek implant application are much more successful.

The cheek implant, which is one of the commonly used facial implants, can be used to give the face the desired appearance. You can call us now to get information about the cheek implant before and after and to make an appointment.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

What Does Cheek Implant Do?

Cheek implants are also called malar implants. Problems such as an unhappy appearance of the face due to the downward curved edges of the eyelids, a rounder appearance of the eyes, bags that form under the eyes at a young age, a flat and level appearance of the face, and the appearance of nasolabial folds at a young age can be eliminated with cheek implants.

If fat is to be injected instead of the cheek implant, this is usually done by injecting fat from the abdomen into the cheekbone area. However, this is a procedure with a much shorter duration of action. When this operation is supported by shaping the jawbone, the results obtained are much more successful. Moreover, it is of great importance that both the jaw tip and the upper jaw bone applications are performed by experienced doctors, as well as the cheek implants. So how is the cheek implant placed and what can patients expect?

How is Cheek Implant Application Performed?

Cheek implants use materials in the form of granules that allow bone formation in the area where they are placed. The method that leads to more permanent results than the injection method is the use of a prosthesis. These prostheses are adapted to the anatomical structure and are not rejected by the body. Three different methods can be used to create prostheses.

The first is the use of bone taken from the patient himself, the second is the removal of prostheses from a bone bank. Another method is the use of materials that resemble pumice, have no allergenic properties and have a porous structure. The procedural steps in the application of cheek implants are as follows:

  • The material to be used is carved and shaped into a form suitable for the facial anatomy,
  • The prostheses are inserted into the area of application through the incisions in the mouth.

The healing process of inserting a cheek implant, which is a very short procedure, is also very fast. Special bandages should be worn for a few days after the application, and it is of great importance to protect the face from impacts during this process. Cheek implant can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's condition.

For Whom Is The Cheek Implant Suitable?

Cheek implants are suitable for all women and men over the age of 18. However, the age limit may not apply in the case of trauma-related deformities. While only fillings will suffice for young people, cheek implants may be considered for age-related deformities or genetic factors. Both fillings and cheek implants can be used at all times of the year.

The patient can be discharged the same day for this procedure, which is usually performed under local anesthesia. Since one is discharged the same day, one can quickly return to social life or business. So, there is no need for people in business life to give up their jobs or give up their social life. In addition, patients whose lower eyelids and upper lip are not sufficiently developed can also benefit from a cheek implant.

Now, how long does the cheek implant heal as a method of cosmetic surgery and what do the experts say about the cheek implant, what should be considered?

What Should Be Considered After a Cheek Implant?

Those who have cheek implants to give the face a youthful appearance must follow some rules to ensure the success of the application and avoid complications. These rules are called by experts as follows:

  • The patient needs a companion after the surgery,
  • It is not recommended to use a vehicle after the surgery,
  • It is recommended to eat soft or liquid food in the first days,
  • In case of pain or discomfort, painkillers such as paracetamol can be taken,
  • To avoid swelling of the face or similar problems, it is necessary not to do heavy exercises for a while,
  • If you lie down with your head down for two to three weeks, you will largely prevent edema and swelling.

Smoking after a cheek implant significantly slows down the healing process of the wounds in the mouth. Therefore, you should stop smoking during this process and stay away from teas and similar products that can cause bleeding. Also, you should not forget to inform your doctor about medications you have taken before the surgery.

The Cost of a Cheek Implant

The price of a cheek implant depends on many factors. Factors such as the condition of the person's cheekbones, the method of application, the filling or the prosthetic material determine the price. Therefore, it is not possible to directly quantify the price of a cheek implant. In order to get a clear figure, a medical examination is required first. After the examination, the doctor will inform the patient about both the details of the cheek implant application and the price.

The cheek implant is a procedure that will likely be with the patient for the rest of their life. However, the same cannot be said for cheek implants that are placed with fillers. If you would like to get detailed information about the cheek implant, get examined and make an appointment to start the cheek implant treatment, you can contact us right now.
