Cheek augmentation is a great option for those who want more fullness to flat cheekbones. Cheek implants can be inserted frontally (the "apple" of your cheek), laterally (the length of the cheek) or both. Since incisions are made inside the mouth, you never have to worry about visible scarring.
Even though the cheek augmentation surgery is relatively quick (45-60 minutes), and you can return home the same day, it's advisable to take a few days off from work. Most likely you'll have some discomfort, but there will also be swelling in your face for anywhere from 2-3 weeks. Full results should be visible in one or two months.
