Elevate and Improve With No Maintenance
High cheekbones and plump cheeks are considered the pinnacle of beauty by many. Achieving this look can bring confidence and satisfaction to those with flatter cheeks or hollowness. While dermal fillers are an option, they can't always provide the desired dramatic results and require ongoing maintenance. Cheek implants can give you the mid-facial boost you've wanted in just one procedure.
At Orange County Surgical Specialists, we are excited to provide our patients with the most innovative and safe cosmetic facial procedures available. For patients considering cheek implants in Mission Viejo, Dr. Reza Bolourian has extensive expertise in facial plastic surgery and is dedicated to ensuring that his patients receive only the highest quality care.
Better Facial Harmony
Cheek implants are typically silicone-molded implants surgically placed in the cheeks to either bring prominence to the cheekbones or restore fullness to a hollow appearance.
Cheek implants are sometimes used alongside other methods, such as facelifts or dermal fillers, for a comprehensive effect. Most often inserted via an incision inside the cheek, this procedure typically doesn't involve any visible scarring. While cheek implants are highly durable and designed to be permanent, they are removable if the patient changes their aesthetic preferences in the future.
If your cheeks are not sculpted and elevated the way you'd like or if you have lost volume due to aging or weight loss, cheek implants can provide outstanding results so you can love what you see in the mirror each morning. This procedure offers benefits like:
Cheek Implants For You
Good candidates for cheek implants should be generally in good health, non-smokers, and have a need for volume replacement that would not be better addressed with a facelift or other procedures. Those with flat cheeks, volume loss due to aging, uneven cheeks, or a desire for a more dramatic facial appearance are often eligible for this surgery.
Start Your Transformation
At your consultation, Dr. Bolourian will take the time to examine your facial proportions, the state of your skin, and other physical factors that will determine if cheek implants are right for you. Because there are different types and sizes of cheek implants, this procedure is completely customizable, and patients can achieve either a subtle or a more dramatic effect. Our team will also provide a detailed treatment plan to ensure you are well-informed about expected outcomes, preparation, and recovery.
Short Procedure - Enduring Results
Cheek implant surgery can be performed either under general anesthesia or with local anesthesia and sedation. The procedure typically takes around one hour to complete. In most cases, an incision is made inside the cheek, and the implant is placed directly on the cheekbone and then anchored using a tiny screw. Dissolvable sutures are usually used to close the incisions.
Most patients can return to regular activities after about one week, but residual swelling may last as long as two to three months, at which point final, optimal results should be visible. Since this procedure is permanent, there is no need for maintenance, but cheek implants are removable if the outcome is not exactly what the patient expected or if preferences change.
With over 20 years of experience, board-certified OC cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reza Bolourian has an unparalleled commitment to the safety and comfort of each one of his patients. Dr. Bolourian and his team strive to provide the highest quality patient care while delivering stunning, star-quality aesthetic results.
