To continue the theme of beautiful face, high cheek bones is one of the important factors. It not only adds beauty and elegance to any face, but it also corrects the plump look of mid-section of face due to flat cheeks.

At Dezire Clinic Delhi, we offer cheek augmentation using cheek implants to give you those high cheek bones that everyone likes.

Cheek implants are one of the best choice for restoring midface volume.  Fillers and fat will dissolve over time.  Fat and permanent fillers will droop over time, worsening the problem and cheek or midface lifting procedures will sag over time.  Cheek implants are fixed to the cheek bones with tiny micro screws, so they will always remain in place and not droop.  This makes them the only three dimensional method of cheek rejuvenation that is permanent and won’t move.  Perhaps the biggest advantage is that if the patient does not like them, they can be removed in 5 minutes! There are not many options that are both permanent and reversible.  When considering the available options for midface rejuvenation (fillers, fat, lifting procedures and implants) nothing rivals the versatility of silicone cheek implants. A volumized midface is the hallmark of youthfulness and we understand this fact at Dezire clinic and address this important area.

Types of Facial Implants in Delhi

The most common facial implants are used for chin and cheekbone enhancement. These implants are available in various materials but the vast majority of successful and FDA approved implants are made of surgical silicone. They feel natural and the infection or rejection rate is extremely low and silicone surgical implant material has been used for many surgical applications for decades. Many types of facial implants exist for correction of cosmetic or reconstructive problems. These implants are anatomical which means that they are specifically designed to augment specific areas. Some implants augment the actual cheekbone area while others augment the area of the cheek under the eye. Many styles of cheek implants are available but the most common used are the following.

The submalar implant provides maximal augmentation of sunken cheeks right under the eye. This implant does little for cheek bone augmentation.

The malar shell (malar means cheek) implant is designed to augment the actual cheekbone area for patients that desire more fullness in this area.

Combination of implants augments the entire midsection of the face  by lifting the midface and cheekbones.

When Would Someone Consider A Cheek Implant?

  • Cheeks are asymmetrical.
  • Malformed cheeks either one or both due to a health condition or congenital defect.
  • Loss of face volume and sagging due the normal aging process.
  • Face looking drawn due to excessive weight loss
  • Accidents resulting in bone structure changes.
  • Racial or genetic appearance that is often thought to be less attractive than having high cheekbones
  • Gravity – which makes things droop down making the cheeks look flat

Cheek Implant Surgical Procedure in Delhi

Cheek implants are a relatively simple procedure that takes about 15 minutes per side and can be performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation.

In order to place the implant a very small incision is made inside mouth above gums and muscle and fascia is separated and then the implant is placed directly on bone. The incision is then closed using dissolvable sutures. The sutures are way up high in mouth so that the patient doesn’t feel them with tongue.

Cheek implants recovery and side effects:

The surgery causes moderate swelling, bruising and pain which can be managed using pain killers. Most patients return to work and social activities after 1-2 days. Heavy physical exercise should be avoided for three weeks following the procedure.

The recovery is usually about a week.

The result with the implants is immediate; however it takes some time for the swelling to subside completely

Regular activities can be resumed in a  week or two. Refrain from major social functions for up to four weeks.

When will I be able to see the results?

The results are immediate, although you may think that the implants are far too large at first due to the swelling. It may take a few months for more refined results to emerge.

How long is the Cheek Augmentation procedure?

Cheek augmentation is a relatively quick surgical procedure. Usually the procedure is finished in 1 hour. It may take longer, if combined with other cosmetic surgery.

Can I combine cosmetic Cheek Augmentation with other facial surgery?

Yes, it’s generally preferred to combine procedures. The tissue modified from one area can possibly be used for another surgical area, such as fat transfer and face lifting. Secondly, the recovery process following surgery would only be once, and you minimize downtime by avoiding two separate procedures. Commonly combined procedures with cheek augmentation surgery include eyelid surgery, facelift, fat transfer.
