I am at the end of week 1 post cheek augmentation. I have considerable swelling across the mid face from upper lip to lower eyelids. The cheek implants have a large, rimmed appearance and I look like a cartoon character. Is it normal for implants to appear "too large" at this point in time?
Cheek Implants Appear Too Large

Large Cheek Implants
Swelling will make your implants look too large 1 week after surgery. "Chipmunk Cheeks" are possible right after mid-face surgery. It can take 6 weeks before you start to see your final result. Patiently enjoy your impovement.
