Cheek Implants Chicago, IL

Fill out sunken cheeks.

Fuller, Perfectly Shaped Cheeks

Throughout your life you worked hard to stay in shape and keep fit.  You counted calories, tallied grams of fat and always ate for health and beauty.  But as we get older, our faces start to change.

Your face loses volume, which makes your eyes start to look slightly sunken.  Cheeks start to hollow out.  The skin on your face loses its firmness and elasticity.

Staying thin and fit is good for your whole body, but makes the problem worse. You’re not putting on fat, which would help to plump out some lines and wrinkles.

At the same time, gravity comes into play, and the elastin and collagen fibers that allow skin to stretch and spring back weaken, causing your skin to sag.

But you can have the beautiful face of your youth without putting on an extra 10-pounds.  The answer is simple: cheek implants.

Cheek implant surgery will improve your facial contours and restore your face to a full and youthful look.

It is a simple procedure. Dr. Cohen usually makes an incision in the upper mouth near the top of the gum line and slides an implants into place. The implant is filled with a soft tissue filler (like Restylane), silicone, your own fat, a material called Medpor, or Gore-Tex.

After 10 days of recovery,  you will be ready to show your new face to the world.

Are Cheek Implants Permanent?

Cheek Implants are permanent and will last a life time. They are very predictable and will provide you with lasting benefits into old age.

Because of the permanent nature of cheek implants, it’s important to consider your look in your older years as your cheeks will naturally look more hollow decades after your surgery.

Dr. Cohen has a very deep understanding of facial anatomy, and how it changes over time.  He will be able to give you direct advice as to how your cheeks will look not just in the near future, but in decades to come.

What Is The Recovery Time?

The recovery time of Cheek Implant Surgery is between 4-6 months.

For the first week, the cheeks can be swollen. The longer it takes Dr. Cohen to perform the surgery, the more swelling you will experience.  Ice to the cheeks and limiting strenuous activity for the first month may help reduce the swelling.

After that, your cheeks will look “puffy” for the first month or so. If you don’t want some people to know you’ve had surgery, you can tell them you had root canals to explain how your face looks.

In the 4-5 months that follow, the final shape is achieved as the healing phase is completed. Dr. Cohen is there to support you at every step of the way, in case you have any questions as you go through your recovery.

When you’re beyond the recovery period, your new look will last for decades.

What's The Difference Between Cheek Implants And Fillers?

Cheek implants are a permanent solution to filling out hollow and sunken cheeks.  They are a safe and easy way to get a permanent volume enhancement. Implant surgery gives Dr. Cohen more control, but is more intensive than a filler and requires a recovery time of 4-6 months.

Fillers are also an effective way to fill out cheeks, and you will only need a few days to recover. But they have to be repeated regularly, and are not a good long term solution if you want to create a permanent change.

I went to the consultation with the idea of surgically removing the “bags” under my eyes and Dr. Cohen recommended this less invasive and more affordable solution. (unlike other doctors I spoke with~they were ready and willing to do surgery with no mention of another options…until I asked!). Dr. Cohen and his staff were great and I would recommend him to anyone!

I felt that I needed a bit of work to stave off the aging process. My visit with Dr Cohen was wonderful, he was professional and caring at the same time as he explained he did not want to over-enhance but accentuate my natural looks. I would rate both himself and his practice very highly.
