Pain on one side after cheek implants

Unfortunately, it's impossible to diagnose the cause of the pain on your right cheek without an examination.  If you can't see the surgeon who performed your cheek augmentation, I would see if your surgeon's office knows of another physician you could see.  If not, I would try seeing if your regular medical doctor might have a referral for you.
