Do you feel as though you’ve lost considerable volume in your mid-facial region? Or are you self-conscious about your appearance because you feel that your facial features aren’t symmetrical? If that’s the case, you may be a good candidate for cheek implants at Oral and Facial Surgical Center in Bala Cynwyd, PA.
Board certified surgeon Dr. Anthony Farole is highly experienced in helping patients achieve their ideal results with natural-looking cheek implants. Take a look at how the procedure is performed, including if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cheek Implants?
If you’re interested in getting cheek implants but aren’t sure if you’re a good candidate, here’s the scoop: the best candidates are individuals who are unhappy with the overall appearance of their face. These candidates should be particularly focused on addressing sunken cheeks by restoring volume to the mid-facial region.
As with all surgical procedures, candidates should be healthy individuals with realistic expectations for the procedure. You should be a nonsmoker; if you do currently smoke, you’ll be encouraged to quit at least six weeks before your procedure.
How Do Cheek Implants Work?
The process for inserting cheek implants is surprisingly straightforward; Dr. Farole will make small incisions in your mouth, which allow him to place the silicone implants in key areas of the mid-facial region. The cheek implant procedure can be performed with other facial surgeries, like a facelift or a neck lift.
Patients should expect some swelling and bruising immediately after the procedure; these side effects usually last for up to three weeks. You should expect to see final results about three or four months after your cheek implant procedure.
Dr. Farole and his staff are the best! Very professional and comforting. Please don’t hesitate to use Dr. Farole.
