Who is a Good Candidate?

You may be a good candidate for cheek implant surgery in Dubai 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 augmentation surgery enhances the appearance of your cheeks and ultimately the 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.

What Are the Techniques Used?

Cheek augmentation in Dubai 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 injectionsThis treatment involves injecting fat, extracted from your own body, in the sunken areas of middle face to enhance cheeks.

The 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 augmentation treatment which include:

  • 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.

Pre-op Prepration

Prior to surgery, you will have a pre-op visit. During pre-op visit, our plastic surgeon will perform physical examination and will provide you 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.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Cheek augmentation in Dubai is performed on an outpatient basis and takes forty five minutes to an hour for completion. The steps of the procedure are:

  • The first step involves administering local anesthesia.
  • Then the surgeon will make a small incision near the place where the implant is to be placed. The sites for making incision are:
    • Inside the mouth where the gums and lips meet.
    • Just below the eyelashes.
  • Then a pocket for placement of implant is created.
  • The implant is then inserted and sometimes sutured to a stronger internal facial feature that lies deeper in the skull.
  • Finally, incision is stitched.


The procedure is quite safe, however, just like every other treatment procedure; it also comes with some complications. You might experience some of these complications but they are not permanent. So, you shouldn’t be worried. These risks include;

  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Bleeding
  • Bad or slow healing
  • Risks associated with anesthesia
  • Skin loss
  • Seroma (fluid accumulation)
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Prolonged swelling
  • Skin discoloration
  • Fatty cysts
  • Lumpiness
  • Asymmetry
  • Persistent pain
  • Changes in the skin sensation
  • Numbness
  • Displacement of cheek implant
  • Unsatisfactory results
  • Blindness (rare cases)
  • Requirement of a revision surgery
  • Thick scar tissue on the treated area
  • Cardiac complications
  • Pulmonary issues
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Suboptimal aesthetic result

Suggestion – You should be very careful in selecting your surgeon. Also, you have to discuss these issues with your surgeon prior to the treatment to get a full picture of how your exact case will go and the results you can expect. Don’t hesitate to ask questions!
