Malar Augmentation (Before Surgery)

Cheekbone surgery is undertaken at the outpatient surgery center. What this means to you is that the surgery will be completed in the relaxed atmosphere of a safe, certified and licensed medical facility, removed from the sometimes intimidating environment of a hospital. The surgery center is able to satisfy all the elements that a patient expects in ambulatory cheek implant surgery; namely, safety, convenience, confidentiality, and personalized care.

Each person's cheekbone surgery is unique, but the most common procedure involves making a small incision above the gumline inside the mouth. A small pocket is created and the cheek implant is inserted. The implant is held in place by tiny sutures which remain for about three days.
