Cheek implants are pretty straightfoward to put in. A small incision is made under the upper lip and a preselected shape is put on the malar bone. There are cheek implants that adhere to the bone so typically no screws are used. Cheek implants are made of several material but the most common is silicone. They are permanent unlike injectible fillers. They are also easily removed if you don't like them or they get infected. The risk of complications is low <1% in good hands. The cost is around $4500. Before and afters can be seen at my office. Most cheek implant patients choose not to be on websites.
Cheek implants can yield great results, but I often suggest fillers first
Cheek implants are permanent, inserted in a surgical procedure and require one week or more of healing. With all the new fillers, we can augment cheeks and have results last up to 2 years. Fillers are done in an exam chair and you are back to work the next day. I also like to try fillers first to determine exactly how much augmentation you are looking for.
