This treatment is provided at the same day of consultation in the office and may require local anaesthetics. You may develop some bruising for 48 hours.
2-Surgical procedure: By using either your own fatty tissue or an implant, a long lasting refinement to the areas of your mid-face can be accomplished. Normally done under General anaesthesia or local aesthetic with sedation in a hospital setting. It takes about 60 minutes and creating a permanent result.
For cheek augmentation using your own fatty tissue, there will be no scar on the face. If you had an implant surgery, then the scar will be 3.5cm long inside the mouth, with no external scar. The sutures are dissolvable and do not need removal.
To decide on which treatment you need, book a consultation now and discuss the options with Dr Barnouti, your plastic surgeon.
