Am I a Candidate for a Cheek Implant?

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

If you’re disappointed with the natural loss of volume in your face as you get older, you may have considered whether or not you’re a candidate for cheek implants in Naperville. Cheek implants are an ideal way to add volume to your cheeks and help improve facial contours, ultimately providing a more youthful appearance. They’re also ideal for those who have undergone an illness or a traumatic injury who want to restore plump, natural-looking volume in the middle of their face.

Important Details About the Implant

Cheek implants themselves are typically made from medical silicone and are surgically removable at any time. Silicon is known for its long history of safety so you won’t have to worry about it causing any negative side effects. You may also be thinking about scarring and whether or not this is the result of a cheek implant in Naperville; rest assured that our surgeon will insert the implants through either the mouth or the lower eyelid so no scars are present.

Surgical Aftercare

Following surgery, your face will have surgical dressings that will remain in place for 2-3 days following the procedure. It’s normal to feel a stretching sensation in the cheeks following the procedure, but this feeling typically goes away within a week. You can expect most swelling to go down after 6 weeks, and we recommend staying away from vigorous activities after about 10 days.

Cheek implants are an easy, effective way to get a more defined facial structure. If you’re interested in learning more, please schedule a consultation with our team.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
