"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
"The BESTEST EVER - I have had my breasts, botox and fillers done by him. He is an AMAZING Dr. His staff is the best EVER! I will not even consider someone else in the future. There are a few more pro endures I would like to have in the next couple of years... He is definitely worth every bit!!!!!!!!!"- L. / RealSelf / Jan 02, 2020
"Absolutely Astonished - I went to Dr Brantley for my deviated septum and rhinoplasty. I did not know much at the time but after discussing everything on the consult i was confident i had made a good choice. I ended up getting a septic, rhino and chin implant. I was extremely nervous about the implant as i really did not know anyone who has had it done. A couple of weeks later the day of my surgery i was warmly welcomed at the surgery center. The pre-op staff was extremely friendly. I was treated with respect and i was extremely impressed but comforting staff. They did everything possible to make sure i was calm and comfortable. I do not remember much from the post-op staff but my family member said they was exceptional. I honestly and confidently say i have never experience a health care facility as welcoming and friendly as Dr Brantley staff. They worked with me on everything and answered any question I had. They quickly got my FMLA papers signed and sent back. After I got home and seen everything i was nervous about the results. If i did not tell you i had a chin implant done you would never know. The scar has healed great and i love the results and so glad I made the decision to get it. I am impressed with my rhino/septo. It is actually weird to be able to breath out of both side of my nose again and have a more symmetrical look. In the future were i need anything i will absolutely be going back. The staff made the experience a memorial one and they even called to check up on me a few days in the days after. Working in healthcare myself i can not speak more highly of this bunch!"- F. / RealSelf / Dec 22, 2019

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.
