Cheek implants for a younger look in Charlotte NC
Cheek implants for a younger look in Charlotte NC can help men or women deal with the hollow apperance that comes with advancing age. A facial plastic surgeon will have a number of implants already made, one of which might be right for your face. If not, an implant can be custom made to suit your features and needs.
Cheek implants for a younger look in Charlotte NC are usually used to augment the cheekbones, the area just below the cheekbones, or both. Sometimes the same results can be accomplished through fat implantation. Filler injections are also used for this purpose, but most of these have only a temporary effect, and permanent fillers can cause adverse reactions, so cheek implants are a more effective and safe long-term solution. To remove the risk of visible scarring, the surgeon will make incisions inside your mouth and put the implants in that way. The implants will most likely be made of Medpor, or high-density porous polyethylene (a kind of plastic) or Gore-Tex (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene).
How to get cheek implants
Make sure you won’t have to do a lot of talking for at least a week after the operation. Have soft foods and meal replacement shakes in your house. Before having the surgery done, stop smoking for a couple of weeks and don’t take aspirin or ibuprofen. Afterwards, you will experience swelling, bruising and limited movement of the mouth and lips. Keep an eye on your temperature, because a fever may be a sign of infection.
