Cheek Augmentation in Birmingham

Cheek Augmentation Surgery can enhance the cheek and mid-face area in multiple ways. Facial implants can restore the fullness to your cheeks, or can create the appearance of strong cheek bones if you never had them and dermal fillers can restore volume in the tissue. Either of these techniques can increase the projection of your cheeks and help restore a youthful appearance.

Enhancing your appearance with Cheek Augmentation

Weak cheeks can make your face appear scrawny, and create an aged appearance to the under-eye area. Cheek implants are a permanent solution to achieve full cheeks and may also create better balance to the structural appearance of your face. With Dr. Petroโ€™s consultation, clients can choose from a multiple implant chance to achieve their desired look.

Cheek Augmentation recovery

The usual recovery after aesthetic cheek surgery depends on the type of surgical approach utilized and if other procedures are performed at the same time. In general, from a cheek augmentation alone, you should be active the day of surgery, but your upper lip will feel asleep. This sensation will return overnight, and the cheeks will feel mildly sore and swollen. Keeping your head elevated helps the swelling resolve sooner. If your cheek augmentation was performed through the mouth, you will be restricted to a soft diet for a few days until the gums have healed. You will have to rinse your mouth after eating to keep the sutures clean. The sutures will dissolve on their own after several weeks. If the eyelid approach was utilized, your surgeon will instruct you on how to rest your eyes, and utilize lubricants to prevent dryness during the post-surgery swelling phase. During follow-up visits, skin sutures will be removed.

The results will be long-lasting.

Facial implants bring balance and better proportion to the structural appearance of your face. They define your face by increasing projection and creating more distinct features.
