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.
