If you’re suffering with hollow or sunken cheeks, it could make you appear older than you really are. Full cheeks and prominent cheekbones are a sign of youth and beauty, and they can be achieved with cheek augmentation by Dr. Cohen at Park Smiles NYC.
Prior to surgery, you and Dr. Cohen will discuss what shape you’re trying to achieve. Dr. Cohen will then work with you to determine the best cheek implant shape and size to fit naturally with your facial structure.
Cheek augmentations are performed under general anesthetic or twilight sleep. An incision is made along the upper jaw inside the cheek. Inserting the cheek implants through the mouth results in no visible scarring.
During your surgery, Dr. Cohen may shape the implant so that it fits solidly against your existing bone. The implant is then inserted through the mouth, and adjusted to the correct position. The surrounding tissue is stitched closed to hold the cheek implant in place. The procedure itself takes approximately an hour and a half.
Most of our cheek augmentation patients report very little bruising or swelling and you should be feeling back to normal within a week. It may take up to six weeks until you’re your mouth is completely healed and final results are visible.
