The ancient Greeks recognized high cheek bones as a feature of a beautiful face. Many different types of materials are offered for cheek augmentation today. Dr. Fechner uses exclusively GoreTex and Silastic as cheek implants because of their track record of safety and success.
Cheek augmentation is performed using a scarless technique and the procedure is well tolerated by most patients. A cheek implant is safely placed as an outpatient procedure and the recovery time may range from 7 to 10 days.
