How Are Cheek Implants Done?

The cheek implants procedure is done in four simple steps.

  1. Anesthesia: Firstly, the surgeon will make sure about your comfort by putting you under general/local anesthesia or sedation.
  2. Incision: The procedure requires making incisions for inserting the implants. There are two types of incisions; in-mouth incisions and incisions under the eyelid.
  3. Inserting the implant: The surgeon inserts the implants either through the incision made inside your mouth or the ones that are made under your eyelid.
  4. Closing the incision: Cheek implant incisions can be closed using sutures.

Most cheek implants are made of silicone, but Medpor implants are used frequently as well. 

Cheek implants can be applied to different areas of the cheek to fulfill various purposes. 

  • Malar: These implants are placed directly on the cheekbones to encourage tightened skin and additional contour.
  • Submalar: Submalar implants are placed on the apple of the cheeks to give them a rounded and fuller look.
  • Combined: Sometimes, both methods are used simultaneously to enhance the result.

How and where are cheek implants inserted?

In most cases, the surgeon makes an incision in the upper mouth and near the top gum area. With this technique, absorbable sutures will be used and scars will be invisible. 

In other cases, your surgeon might decide to make incisions on your cheek and under the eyelid. The size of these incisions depends largely on the approach your surgeon takes. The incision is unlikely to leave scarring if any at all.

Sometimes, a cheek implant procedure is performed in conjunction with other surgeries such as rhinoplasty or facelift. In such cases, the surgeon uses the same incision to perform both surgeries.
