Cheek Implants Kirkland: Are Cheek Implants Safe?

By | Face, Cheek Augmentation | No Comments
High cheekbones have become a common goal among plastic surgery patients. Whether patients want a slimmer looking face or the “apple” appearance to the cheeks, cheek implants are one way to achieve this appearance. With a common non-surgical option, cheek filler, many patients opt for this procedure instead. However, cheek fillers cannot always achieve the results patients are looking for and are not a permanent solution. When deciding on cheek implants, patients often wonder: are cheek implants safe? Cheek implants are often designed to match each patient’s anatomy and made of non-toxic materials such as silicone. This makes the rejection rate low and steady with roughly any other implant procedure. As a surgical procedure, the cheek augmentation surgery itself comes with basic surgical risks like infection, unsatisfactory results, fluid collection, and scarring. Overall, chronic complications or risks are rare, especially when you choose a capable surgeon like Dr. Jonov.  Overall, the answer to the question: are cheek implants safe?, is yes. In good surgical candidates, surgical cheek augmentation is a safe procedure with few risks. Dr. Jonov can evaluate your individual risk during a consultation.

Cheek Augmentation: Filler Or Implants?

By | Injectable Fillers, Cheek Augmentation | No Comments

Undefined and hollowed cheeks can contribute to an aged appearance or create facial imbalance. There are many options to correct this and restore balance and achieve a defined face. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we offer surgical and non-surgical cheek augmentation options. 

The least invasive and one of the most popular options is cheek filler. Cheek filler uses temporary dermal fillers to provide fullness and definition in the cheek area. These results will eventually go away though, meaning you will need to refresh your cheek filler occasionally. For patients not wanting an implant, or those who want to try out the look first, cheek filler will not permanently augment the cheeks. 

Patients wanting permanent results, or who need larger correction, are often candidates for surgical cheek augmentation with an implant. During this procedure, Dr. Jonov would place implants in the cheeks to create a balanced and proportional appearance. The implants would be sized specifically to fit and complement your facial features. 

Comparatively, filler is malleable, but provides temporary results. Implants are permanent and can provide more dramatic results in some cases. To know which option best suits you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery by calling 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
