HOW IS CHEEK AUGMENTATION SURGERY PERFORMED?
Cheek augmentation surgery, depending on the doctors’ priorities, can be done in a hospital or in a private clinic, through local or general anesthesia. In case of local anesthesia, some medicines may be prescribed beforehand, so that the patient feels comfortable during the surgery.
One way is to extract fat from patients’ own bodies and inject it into the cheeks. This method is ideal as it will not cause any immune system problems. It also diminishes acne scars. It should be noted that this method will last for about six months as fat can be absorbed by the body over time.
Placing solid cheek implants over the cheekbone is another way. This method is permanent, and is usually done through inside the mouth so that there will be no scars on face.
Soft filler tissue, also a permanent method, is injected with a very tiny needle. Local anesthesia is applied so that the patient will be comfortable during the surgery.
