Cheek Implants in Greensboro, NC

Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, P.A. offers cheek implants to the residents of Greensboro, Burlington, and surrounding North Carolina communities desiring cosmetic surgery.

What Are Cheek Implants?

Cheeks implants enhance the cheekbones, resulting in an appearance of elegance and youth. They may provide a more harmonious balance to the face and features, so the client feels better about his or her appearance. Dr. Coley offers this kind of surgery at his Greensboro, North Carolina office. You can see beautiful results during a consultation by viewing our before and after cheek implant photos.

Who Is a Candidate for Cheek Implants?

If you desire increased facial definition and more prominent cheekbones or cheek fullness, you may be a good candidate for cheek implants. The ideal candidate is in good physical health, is emotionally stable, and has realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. Although most clients who have cheek implant surgery are women, many men choose this surgery to improve the way they look and feel about themselves.

How Is Cheek Implant Surgery Performed?

Recent improvements in surgical materials have resulted in implants that are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. During the surgery at his practice in Greensboro, Dr. Coley selects implants that best enhance the client’s appearance. The implants are inserted through small incisions made inside the mouth. Depending on the client’s profile, the implants are placed at or below the natural cheekbone. These implants are carefully designed to fit the skeletal form, resulting in a very natural appearance. All implants are created from materials that have been found safe following many years of surgical use. The incisions are closed with absorbable sutures to avoid the need for removal and will heal with no external scarring.

Before and After Cheek Implant Surgery

During the consultation appointment, Dr. Coley analyzes the face and discusses the client’s objectives. While cheek implant surgery is frequently performed as a single procedure, it is often combined with a facelift, eyelid surgery, and/or nose surgery to achieve the best result. During the consultation, Dr. Coley will show before and after pictures of area patients who have opted for cheek implants.

During Surgery

Cheek implantation is performed as an outpatient procedure at Dr. Coley’s office in Greensboro, North Carolina. Using local anesthesia with a sedative, the client is awake but relaxed and insensitive to pain. The procedure usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes.

Understanding the Recovery

Dr. Coley may apply a pressure bandage immediately following surgery, but usually this is not necessary. If so, the pressure bandage is removed the next day and may be replaced with tape and/or a bolster. These stay in place for one to three days. The stitches inside the mouth usually dissolve within 10 days.

Recovery is rapid although there is mild to moderate discomfort that is controlled with medications. Some foods and activities are limited for several days. Although the cheek areas are swollen initially and some bruising may occur, most clients return to work and resume normal activities within a few days.

Understanding the Results

The client may be unable to accurately assess his or her final result for weeks or months. Remember that healing is a gradual process. Give yourself time to adjust to your new look and then fully enjoy the results of Dr. Coley’s cheek implant surgery.
