You may be a good candidate for cheek implant surgery in Dubai if:

  • 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 the 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 as well which include:

  • 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, into the sunken areas of the 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 the contours of the 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 Preparation

During the pre-op visit, our plastic surgeon will examine you physically and provide a list of pre-surgical instructions. Some common instructions include:

  • Discontinue taking any anti-inflammatory medications and supplements.
  • Follow the recommended diet regimen.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Cheek implantation in Dubai is performed on an outpatient basis and takes almost an hour for completion. The steps of the procedure are:

  • The first step involves administering general 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 the implant is created.
  • The implant is then inserted and sometimes sutured to a stronger internal facial feature that lies deeper in the skull.
  • Finally, the incisions are stitched.
