Cheek Implants Appear Too Large

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?

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.
