Cheek implants for my face in Charlotte
Having grown up with undersized cheekbones, I’ve decided I need cheek implants for my face in Charlotte. Prominent, well-shaped cheekbones are a sign of attractiveness in both men and women. Cheek implants are often used for people whose faces have gotten thinner and hollow with age, but they can also be used to improve your appearance while you’re still young.
Fortunately I don’t smoke, so I won’t have to quit. What I will have to do is avoid taking aspirin or ibuprofen for a few weeks beforehand, and stock up on meal replacement shakes, gelatin and other soft or liquid foods. The reason is that after the surgery, I’ll have limited movement of the mouth and lips for a while, along with some swelling and bruising. So don’t expect me to be much of a conversationalist until the swelling goes down
How the surgery is done
The implants are usually put in the cheeks by way of incisions inside the mouth. This gets rid of the risk of visible scarring. Cheek implants can be made of Medpor, a high-density porous polyethylene (a kind of plastic) or Gore-Tex (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene). They’re usually intended to augment the cheekbones, the area just below the cheekbones, or both. Sometiems the sugreon can do the same thing by implanting fat. Filler injections are sometimes used, but most of these are only temporary — and permanent fillers sometimes cause adverse reactions. Cheek implants work better and last much longer.
