Cheek Implants in Dallas, TX
What are Cheek Implants?
If you’re suffering with hollow, sunken cheeks, this could make you appear older than you really are. Full cheeks and prominent cheekbones are a sign of youth and beauty, and they can easily be achieved with cheek augmentation. Also known as malar augmentation, cheek augmentation is an available option for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their naturally weak cheekbones. Though less common than rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), cheek implants are nonetheless popular for achieving major changes in facial structure.
If you’re a resident of Dallas, Southlake or Plano and cheek augmentation is something you’ve been thinking about, the highly skilled surgeons at Genecov Plastic Surgery can help. We’ve been performing cheek augmentation surgery for years, with stunning results across the board. Our cheek augmentation before and after photos are testament to this.
Cheek augmentation is a complex procedure that requires a high level of skill and patience. Your choice of surgeon will be key to achieving the look you want. In addition, cheek augmentation is often completed at the same time as other facial surgery, so you can recover from all procedures simultaneously. Call today to learn about average Dallas cheek augmentation costs or any other aspect of the procedure.

How are Cheek Implants Performed?
Prior to surgery, you and your doctor will discuss what shape you are trying to achieve. Your surgeon will 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. An incision is made along the upper jaw inside the cheek. Inserting the cheek implants through the mouth results in no visible scarring.
The implants may be made of either hard implantable material such as silicone or Medpore, or demineralized bone. During your surgery, the surgeon 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 malar augmentation procedure itself takes approximately an hour and a half.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cheek Implants?
Cheek implants can be performed on almost any patient. We find that, in Dallas, cheek augmentation is most frequently done to correct sunken cheekbones. This is also the most common reason among the cheek augmentation patients we see in Southlake and Plano. However, you should carefully consider whether these types of implants will achieve the desired results. Your physician can help guide you in choosing the best procedure, so It’s best to discuss your specific needs when considering cheek implants.
These procedures are not generally performed until the patient has reached adulthood, to ensure that the existing facial structure is fully formed and will not continue to grow or change.
What Kind of Post-Operative Cheek Augmentation Care Can I Expect?
Most of our cheek augmentation patients report very little bruising or swelling. You will, however, need to take about two or three days off of work, and should be feeling back to normal within a week. It may take up to six weeks until your implant site is completely healed and final results are visible.
Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity for about a month after their procedure. We also advise patients to avoid trauma to the cheek implant area at all costs, as this may damage the implants themselves.
What are the Typical Results of Cheek Augmentation?
Our patients are typically thrilled with their fuller cheeks and contoured cheekbones following this surgery. Cheek implants can create very drastic changes in physical appearance. Not only can they be used for simply cosmetic reasons, but they can also correct lifelong disfigurements. Our cheek augmentation before and after photos can help you decide if this surgery is for you.
