"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018

What to Expect
Cheek Implants: Since this is an outpatient surgery, patients will be under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility for about one hour. An incision will be carefully made in the mouth between the cheek and upper gums. A pocket will be created over the cheekbone after the soft cheek tissue has been properly elevated. Then, the medical-grade plastic implant will be placed in the created pocket for one or both cheeks. Afterward, the incisions will be closed and bandaged.
Filler and Fat Injections: If you're not ready to commit to surgery or if you desire a more subtle look, using injectable fillers and fat can also produce great results. This will be a short process where you will have a filler such as Restylane or Voluma injected into the desired areas. Fat injections will first require liposuction from another area in the body before injection. Numbing cream can be made available, and several sessions may be required to reach optimal results. There is no downtime associated with this procedure.
After cheek implants, you should expect some level of swelling, numbness, and bruising in the treatment area. Normal activities, such as going to work, can usually be resumed within a week. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first few weeks after surgery. As the swelling resolves, you can expect to see the full benefits of the surgery over the following few months. Cheek implants have a strong safety record since they are made with the highest-quality materials. While cheek implants provide long-term benefits, a patient’s face will naturally change due to the aging process, and this could impact the look of the implants over time.
Filler and fat injections will also provide volume, though the results will not be as dramatic. Results for facial fillers can last between a few months up to two years depending on the case and the type of filler.
