During cheek implant surgery, an incision is made inside the mouth.
The surgeon will create a pocket for the implant to fit into, and then insert the implant through the incision. A bandage may be applied to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Following cheek implant surgery you may have some swelling and mild soreness in the cheek area.
Your cheeks may also feel tight due to the increased volume. Pain medications can help control your pain if necessary.
Make sure to ask your maxillofacial surgeon for specific advice on how and when to resume your usual activities, including eating solid food. In general, returning to work and other normal activities can occur within a week.
