  • ANAESTHETIC – LOCAL OR GENERAL AS PART OF A FACE LIFT
  • STAY IN  HOSPITAL – 1 DAY IF LOCAL ANAESTHETIC ­2 DAYS IF GENERAL ANAESTHETIC
  • RECUPERATION – (DEPENDENT ON WHETHER PART OF A FACELIFT PROCEDURE OR NOT)

If you’ve always wanted your cheekbones to be more prominent then you are more than likely a perfect candidate for Cheek Augmentation Surgery.

Cheek Augmentation Surgery can also assist in providing a more youthful appearance to an aging face and if combined with a face lift the outcome can be even more rewarding.

Cheek Augmentation or Molar Surgery as it is also known can be performed as an independent procedure or as part of a face lift procedure.

Exactly what you hope to personally achieve by undergoing Cheek Augmentation Surgery needs to be thoroughly discussed with the surgeon well in advance of the surgery. Once the surgeon is in possession of a photograph of your cheek area and has discussed your hopes and aspirations for the outcome of the procedure he or she will be in a position to advise you accordingly.

Once the exact look you are hoping to achieve has been fully discussed, and a decision has been made as to whether you will have a Cheek Augmentation only or have it as part of a Face Lift procedure, cheek (or Molar) prostheses (implants) will be carefully chosen for you by your surgeon.

On the day of the surgery your cheek implants will be inserted via a small incision in your mouth or via your Face Lift incision. Whichever route you decide to opt for, you can rest assured that only the best advice will be given to you after careful assessment of your requirements, in order to give you the best result.
