Cheek implant surgery involves precisely and skillfully placing biocompatible implants. Dr. Ambay uses silicone implants to enhance the volume, shape and projection of the cheekbones. Typically conducted under general anesthesia, the procedure usually takes around 1-2 hours.
Incisions are typically either made via the inside of the mouth, or through an incision under the eyelid, depending on the implant placement and size. Once the incisions have been made, the implants are carefully placed and secured to achieve desired projection, height or shape. In order to address asymmetries on the face, one implant may be slightly larger than the other.
Various types of cheek implants are available, tailored to your facial characteristics and overall aesthetic preferences. Implants can be positioned on the cheekbone (malar implant), beneath it (submalar implant), or a combination of both.

If you desire enhanced facial contours or wish to restore lost cheek volume, you may be an excellent candidate for cheek implants. Other considerations include:
Recovering from cheek implant surgery is typically straightforward and relatively quick. Following the procedure, expect mild swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort around the cheek area. Pain management medication and cold compresses can alleviate any discomfort. Adhering to Dr. Ambay’s post-operative instructions, including dietary adjustments and proper incision care, is crucial.
Within one to two weeks, you should be able to resume your regular routine, though strenuous activities – particularly those that have the potential to impact the face – should be avoided for several weeks to ensure optimal healing.
Regular follow-up appointments at our Wesley Chapel office will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress and ensure the implants are settling as desired.
As well as enjoying your new and improved cheeks or cheekbones for years to come, you’ll also be able to make the most of the following benefits:
