Example of one type of cheek soft silicone implant – Implantech
Cheek implants are inserted via two intraoral upper gum incisions, and the implants are positioned and fixed to the bone itself, in the cheek area. In most cases, I use a very small screw in order to prevent migration. All stitches are internal and dissolving.
Some patient will also consider BUCCAL FAT PAD REMOVAL at the same time to really accentuate the angles of one’s face, as seen in runway models. Others will add a chin implant or a temporal implant.
Cost varies slightly, depending on the types of implant chosen as well as the estimated time in surgery. Because they are already undergoing general anesthesia, many patients choose to add other procedures such as a chin implant, neck liposuction, buccal fat pad removal, or upper lid surgery.
