High cheekbones are a great feature on the beautiful faces you see on TV and in the movies. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with these features, and there's no real way to encourage that sort of bone growth.
But wait, all is not lost! Facial cheek implants aka cheek augmentation, have been around for a while now, and they're so discreet that you probably see them every day but don't even know it.
You too can have cheeks that really stand out and harmonize the rest of your face. Having the right shape of cheek can even make the difference for that job promotion you've been trying to get. Good looks have been scientifically proven to be associated with higher pay.
Facial cheek implants are no longer a rare procedure for the celebrity elite. Every day, people just like you have facial cheek implants inserted to accentuate their facial features. It's becoming a popular way to achieve an improved look without a timely and invasive cosmetic surgery. Now that advanced materials have been developed for the exact purpose, it's also safer than ever before.
Cheek Implant procedure
A cheek implant surgery can be completed within an hour. If other facial cosmetic enhancements are scheduled for the same session, the implant can usually be inserted in the incisions for the other surgeries. Otherwise, a small incision inside your mouth or inside the lower eyelid will be made. Through the incision, the surgeon will prepare a pocket in the underlying tissue. Once that's done, the implant that is custom-shaped for your new facial contour will be inserted.
This is all done in your local plastic surgeon's office, and is done strictly with local anesthetics in an outpatient procedure. That means less downtime, and a faster recovery to your newly improved life. Many patients return to work only a week later, while most swelling subsides within a few days. Of course, if other procedures were performed at the same time, your recovery could be prolonged by other complications.
What are the Risks Involved with a Cheek Implant Surgery?
