Cheek Surgery


Tractament

Facial apperance is evaluated according to the three-dimensional relationship between its different zones. That is why its bone contours and particularly cheeks and chin play such an important role in harmonizing and balancing facial beauty.

Procedure

Cheeks can be augmented using solid silicone implants, whose placement leaves no visible scarring as this is carried out through the mouth. 

Another option consists of taking advantage of incisions made for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, if this is being carried out in the same operation.

It can also be done via lipoinjection, i.e. injecting fat extracted from the same patient via liposuction.

The fat is previously centrifuged so that only intact fat capable of surviving is injected, thereby ensuring permanent results.

In addition to skin, the surgery also concentrates on the muscular, bone and fat structures of the face, achieving more natural initial results and a longer lasting effect.

Hospitalisation

In general, the patient only needs to remain at the center for one day, unless the procedure is combined with other operations.

Anaesthesia

Chin and cheek surgery is performed under local anesthesia and sedation and the patient remains awake throughout but sedated.

However, on some occasions it may be more appropriate to use general anesthesia.


Aftercare

Post-operative recovery is not usually painful and any discomfort can normally be relieved with analgesics. Most patients resume their normal activity in approximately two weeks.

After cheekbone surgery, the facial features are harmonized, the interplay of light and facial shadows are completely new; even under a professional light, the differences in light absorption of the new contours make the transformation clear.
