At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, and his professional staff, perform a variety of cosmetic and surgical procedures using facial implants. One of these types of surgery is for the cheeks. Cheek augmentation, commonly referred to as “cheek implants,” helps to enhance the face, restore youthfulness, and restore sunken cheeks, which is longer lasting than fillers. Placement of cheek implants is typically an outpatient procedure, performed under general anesthesia, and is ideal for someone who wants to add fullness. A variety of facial implants are available in an array of sizes, shapes, and materials, which will be discussed during a consultation with Dr. Ho to provide the best-possible look.

The best candidates for cheek implant surgery:
- Have naturally flat cheeks
- Have flat cheeks as a result of aging
- Have flat cheeks as a result of significant weight loss
- Desire a fuller cheek look
- Desire a longer-term solution as compared to facial fillers
What to Expect
Since this is an outpatient surgery, patients will be under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. An incision will be carefully made in the mouth, which will be placed between the cheek and upper gums. A specially made pocket will be created over the cheekbone after the soft cheek tissue has been properly elevated. Then, the plastic surgeon will insert the medical-grade plastic implant, which will be done for both cheeks. Afterwards, the incisions will be stitched up. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.
After cheek implants, a patient should expect some level of swelling and numbness in the treatment area. Though rare, some patients may experience bruising. Normal activities, such as going to work, can usually be resumed within a week. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first few weeks after surgery. As the swelling resolves over time, a patient can expect to see the full benefits of the surgery over the following few months. Cheek implants have a strong safety record since they are made with the highest quality materials. While cheek implants provide long-term benefits, a patient’s face will change due to the aging process, which could impact the look of the implants over time.
