Cheek Contouring, Cheek Augmentation or malar augmentation is a surgical procedure that focuses on the upper cheekbone area, which is important in defining the frame of the face. This procedure can give you fuller, more defined cheekbones.
There are other women who look for a cheek reduction cosmetic surgery.
What is the length of the surgery?
Cheek augmentation surgery should take about one hour.
Who is a candidate for malar augmentation?
This type of surgery is an ideal choice for a patient who has poorly defined cheekbones and wants a more defined, sculpted look to the facial bones.
How is the surgery performed?
The surgeon will usually make an incision inside the cheek and create a pocket for the silicone implant to be fitted. The location of the incision will depend upon the shape of the face. Once the implant is in place the surgeon may suture it to the bones of the face and then proceed to close the incision with neat sutures.
What does a patient expect from malar augmentation?
The patient will enjoy a more highly sculpted cheekbone that gives greater definition to the face, creating a more striking impression.
What are the risks and side effects involved with cheek augmentation?
There is a risk of infection, bleeding and swelling and the possibility that the implants are misaligned or move out of alignment after the procedure, creating an asymmetrical appearance.
Are there any noticeable scars?
Scars are unlikely to be noticed as most procedures will be done on the inside of the cheek. If other surgical procedures are done at the same time the placement of the incisions may vary, but your surgeon will discuss this with you beforehand.
What type of anaesthesia is used?
The surgeon will use a local anaesthetic in conjunction with a mild sedative.
Is the result of the surgery permanent?
Yes, the effects of the surgery are permanent.
How to prepare for malar augmentation?
Patients need to stop consuming alcohol and to stop smoking cigarettes two weeks before surgery. They should also stop taking vitamins or any medications at the same time. If you suffer from any allergies or health conditions you need to inform your surgeon of this.
How long will it take to heal?
Each patient heals at a different rate, but generally after a week the patient can return to work and within two to three weeks return to normal activity. The final results will only be truly noticeable after about three months.
