Cheek Implants in Long Island, NY
Your cheeks enhance your appearance by creating shadows and highlights. If you have cheeks that are not defined or disproportionate to your other features, you may benefit from cheek implants. For residents in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, Eunice E. Park, MD, who is dual board-certified in facial plastic surgery and ear, nose and throat (otolaryngology), offers cheek augmentation for men and women.
What are Cheek Implants?
The size and contours of your cheeks are important because this area of the face creates highlights and shadows, which bring out your eyes and other features. Cheek augmentation helps men and women who have naturally hollow cheeks as well as those who have lost volume due to aging. Cheek implants are silicone-filled devices that are chosen according to your anatomy and cosmetic goals. Dr. Park helps you determine what size and shape of implants are best for your case.
Benefits of Cheek Implants
Cheek implants are an excellent option for men and women who want an alternative to enhancing the cheeks with dermal fillers. If you are uncertain about getting cheek implants, Dr. Park may recommend that you start with dermal fillers to see if you like the results.
Am I a Candidate for Cheek Implants?
If your cheeks have a hollow or sunken appearance, you may be a good candidate for cheek implants. You should also be in good health and have no medical conditions that preclude you as a candidate. Dr. Park considers your anatomy, age, and other factors, all of which she discusses during your consultation.
What to Expect from Cheek Implants
Cheek implants are inserted in one of two ways:
- Via an incision inside the mouth along the cheek
- Via an incision inside the lower eyelid
After the incision is made, Dr. Park carefully inserts the cheek implant and positions it along the cheekbone. Once she is satisfied with the results of your cheek augmentation, she closes the incision with sutures.
You may need to rest at home for up to one week. Elevating your head for a few days may promote proper healing. Swelling, tenderness and bruising are common symptoms after cheek augmentation. You may also have bruising around your eyes (i.e., black eyes). Any type of movement with your mouth may cause some discomfort.
