About Cheek Implants
Having full, shapely cheeks and a contoured face can greatly impact a person's overall appearance. Ideal candidates for cheek implants are those who have lost fullness in the face with age or have always desired a stronger cheekbone definition. Dr. Petroff has many years of experience performing successful cheek augmentation surgeries for his Lake Oswego, OR patients. His interest in design and architecture come into play as he provides his patients with a natural-looking result that gives their face better overall proportion. Implants are typically made out of synthetic materials such as silicone, and each patient can thoroughly discuss their desired size and shape with Dr. Petroff at Petroff Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa prior to their procedure.
The best candidates for cheek implant surgery:
- Have naturally flat cheeks
- Have flat cheeks as a result of aging
- Have flat cheeks as a result of significant weight loss
- Desire a fuller cheek look
- Desire a longer-term solution as compared to facial fillers
If patients desire subtle results or are not ready to undergo a full implant procedure, then injectable fillers can be an option for them. Trusted, FDA-approved injectables such as Juvéderm® can add volume to the mid-face area for several months up to 2 years, allowing our plastic surgeon to customize the results based on the patient's desires. Follow-up injections will be needed to maintain the look, and patients can schedule a consultation at Petroff Center to receive a personalized treatment plan for the most optimal outcome.
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at.

"I just had my nose done by Dr. Petroff about a month ago and I couldn't be more pleased. His work is flawless. I had a huge embarrassing nose. Everywhere I went I felt like everyone was staring at it. Dr. Petroff made it perfect, petite, upturned, just what I dreamed of. He gave me my confidence back. The procedure itself was a breeze. I had minimal bruising and swelling and was back at work in like 6 days. Everyone is obsessed with my results. My only regret is not doing this sooner. I'm so happy I chose Dr. Petroff!"- A.L. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2018

What to Expect
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. Afterwards, the incisions will be closed and bandaged.
After cheek implants, patients 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, the patient 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 change due to the aging process, which could impact the look of the implants over time.
