Cheek Implants in Los Angeles, CA

Women long to have high, definite cheekbones. Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, and Chester Griffiths, MD, FACS, double board-certified facial plastic surgeons at Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, offer cheek implants to people living in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Brentwood and the surrounding communities in California, who want a more defined mid face area with stronger cheekbones and more striking appearance.

What are Cheek Implants?

Cheek augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that uses facial implants to create more definition and prominence to the cheeks as well as bring balance to the entire facial structure. The procedure is accomplished using silicone implants or dermal fillers to plump up the mid face area giving it more prominence.

Cheek Implants:

These are facial implants placed into the cheeks to give the face more prominent cheekbones. The implants are available in various shapes and sizes to fit different shaped faces and are permanent once placed in the appropriate area.

Dermal Fillers:

An alternative to invasive surgery for cheek implants is dermal fillers. Using prescription gels injected into the targeted areas, the body produces more collagen and elastin which plumps up the mid face area to create more facial definition. While dermal fillers are not a permanent solution, the results may last from several months to a year.

Benefits of Cheek Implants

Once complete, cheek augmentation offers the following benefits:

  • Long-lasting results
  • Short or no downtime or recovery
  • No possibility of absorption of the implant materials
  • Subtle and amazing difference
  • Increased self-confidence

Who is a Good Candidate for Cheek Implants?

Individuals who are looking to add volume and structure to cheeks that have begun to sag or look hollow may be good candidates for cheek augmentation. Sometimes, those who have already used dermal fillers to add volume to their cheeks but want a permanent solution are good candidates.

What Do I Do to Prepare for Cheek Implants?

Prior to your cheek implant procedure, we recommend you schedule a consultation so that we can evaluate your face and discuss what you want out of cheek augmentation. We also ask that you get authorization from your family physician that you are in satisfactory health for surgery.

We provide you with detailed instructions about preparing for your surgery as well as the aftercare. If you smoke, it is important to stop several weeks before your cheek implants as well as a few weeks following your procedure. Additionally, we recommend you stop taking any medications or supplements that thin the blood along with abstaining from alcohol a couple of weeks prior to the procedure.

What Should I Expect on the Day of My Cheek Implant Procedure?

When getting cheek implants, incisions are placed either inside the mouth at the top of the gums or inside the lower lids, depending on where the cheek implants are placed. After making the incisions, small pockets are created in the cheek tissue, and the implants are placed there. Once they are in place, the incisions are closed.

Cheek implant surgery is often done in combination with other procedures such as facelifts. When this is done, they are inserted through incisions used in the other procedures.

How Long Does It Take to Perform Cheek Augmentation?

Cheek augmentation using facial implants typically takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes to complete.

What to Expect After Cheek Implants

There is some recovery involved following cheek implant surgery. It mostly involves taking steps to avoid as much movement as possible in the mid face area. This includes not brushing your teeth for the first few days following surgery, instead using oral rinses to keep the mouth clean. Additionally, you should expect to take a couple of weeks off work to allow your incisions to heal. You must avoid activities that may cause direct impact with your cheeks for several months following your surgery.

Will I Have Scars from My Cheek Implant Procedure?

Because of the location of the incisions, there is no visible scarring.

When Will I See the Results?

The results start to become noticeable as the swelling and bruising subside, although it takes a few months for the full results to become visible. With cheek implants, the results are permanent.

How Much Do Cheek Implants Cost in Los Angeles?

The cost of cheek augmentation using cheek implants varies with each procedure. It depends on the extent of the procedure and whether it is performed in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures. During your consultation, we can discuss the cost with you as well as our payment and financing options. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards as well as offer financing through CareCredit®.
