Cheek Implants in Miami, FL

Did you have round, lifted cheeks as a young adult that lost their luster over the years? Has your face rounded, losing its most striking feature over time? Board-certified plastic surgeon, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., restores the lack-luster cheeks of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida residents with cheek implants (cheek augmentation). If you want the raised cheekbones of your youth back, you may be a candidate for cheek implants (cheek augmentation).

What are Cheek Implants (Cheek Augmentation)?

Cheek implants (cheek augmentation) are a timeless procedure with a proven record of safely and effectively adding body and contour to a face that lost its definition over time. Cheek implants are made of silicone and come in many different shapes and sizes, including injectable filler or full implant. Injectable filler cheek implants integrate with your natural bone structure for a long-lasting effect. Silicone Implants are less permanent and can be removed or adjusted at any time.

Dr. Rubinstein meets with each candidate to select the appropriate implant for your specific desired result. The implant is then inserted in a quick and simple outpatient procedure. The results are the restoration of facial balance with proportionate cheek lines formerly too flat for your face.

Am I A Candidate for Cheek Implants?

If you are bothered by a lack of definition in your facial profile or desire more fullness and contour, you may be a candidate for cheek implants (cheek augmentation). Cheek implants create volume and definition with implants fitted especially for you by Dr. Rubinstein during your pre-surgical consultation. Other benefits include increased self-confidence and a stronger profile through added definition to the contour of your face.

What is the Cheek Implants (Cheek Augmentation) Procedure Like?

Cheek Implants are positioned in a quick, outpatient surgery or in conjunction with other procedures. Implants are inserted in two forms—injectable filler or full implant.

When cheek implants (cheek augmentation) are performed via injection, your cheeks will be numbed locally before a needle is used to inject the filler underneath the skin until the specific result is achieved. Full silicone cheek implants (cheek augmentation) are slightly more invasive, requiring incisions just below the lower eyelids or inside the mouth. These incisions are repaired with tiny sutures, leaving minimal scarring after healing.

When cheek implants (cheek augmentation) are combined with other procedures, the same incision sites are used to insert the implant. This reduces scarring and recovery time during your surgery. Overall recovery time is varied for cheek implants combined with other procedures. Dr. Rubinstein carefully explains recovery expectation during your consultation.

What is the healing process for Cheek Implants (Cheek Augmentation)?

When performed alone, this minimally invasive procedure is performed in the comfort of Dr. Rubinstein’s Aventura, FL office. Cheek implants are generally completed in under two hours. Once complete, you may begin recovery immediately from the comfort of your own home.

The results of the procedure are almost immediately noticeable, but are later obscured by visible swelling. Swelling is a normal result of cheek implants (cheek augmentation) and will subside over one to three weeks. Over the counter pain medicine reduce pain while ice packs help control swelling.

Dr. Rubinstein removes stitches to the face within a week of surgery. Oral stitches absorb naturally over time. You may return to work within a week of cheek implants (cheek augmentation).
