Cheek Implant Candidates
You may be a good candidate for cheek implant surgery if:
- You have flat cheeks.
- Your cheeks have lost volume and your jawline contours need improvement.
- You are interested in having higher cheekbones.
- You think your facial features are out of proportion.
Cheek Implant Goals
Cheek implant surgery enhances the appearance of your cheeks and ultimately entire face by:
- Adding volume to your cheeks
- Improving the contours and definition of your cheeks
- Improving the structure of flat cheeks
- Addressing the sunken areas beneath eyes
- Improving the contours of jawline
Cheek implant surgery restores the youthful appearance of cheeks by giving volume to sunken areas and improving the contours. Facial contours can also be improved by non-surgical procedures including:
- Injectable fillers: They are injected in the cheek area to give volume to the sunken areas and improve their contours.
- Fat injections: This treatment involves injecting fat, extracted from your own body, in the sunken areas of middle face to enhance cheeks.
The two above mentioned techniques are effective for enhancing cheeks but their results are not permanent. Cheek implant surgery uses cheek implants for enhancing contours of middle face. Multiple options are available for cheek implant in Dubai including:
- Malar implants – provide higher projection and are placed on the cheekbones
- Submalar implants – improve the sunken appearance and provide fuller cheeks
- Combination of both – improves the appearance of both cheeks and cheekbones
Prior to surgery, you will have a pre-op visit. During pre-op visit, our plastic surgeon will perform physical exam and will guide you about what you can expect from the surgery. He will also provide you with a list of pre-surgical instructions. Some common ones include:
- Avoid smoking as it can affect healing process.
- Refrain from alcohol consumption one week prior to surgery.
- Discontinue taking any anti-inflammatory medications and supplements.
- Follow the recommended diet regimen.
The procedure of cheek augmentation is performed on outpatient basis and takes forty five minutes to an hour and a half. The steps of the procedure are:
