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. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"I had rhinoplasty with Dr Petroff in the summer of 2005. This many years on I can attest to the quality of his skill. Completely natural looking and absolutely improved my life."- T. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t speak highly enough about Dr Petroff and his staff. I started visiting the center years ago for facials, chemical peels and laser treatments. I was always completely amazed and how amazing the staff was, and how much my skin improved. I had always hoped to one day fix my crooked nose. There was no doubt in my mind Dr Petroff would be the surgeon for me, after seeing his amazing work on my family and friends. I had a rhinoplasty done a little over a year and a half ago... and to this day I’m still in complete awe of his work. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect nose for my face. My nose was unique but Dr Petroff was able to transform it. I am forever thankful to Dr Petroff, and his amazing staff who has always made me feel comfortable and welcomed."- K.A. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2021
"Thank you so much Dr. Petroff. From the moment I walked into the Petroff Center I was so very completely taken care of by experienced, friendly, and competent staff. I found Dr. Petroff to be a very talented and brilliant plastic surgeon. The facelift I received made my kids say “Mom! You look 30 years younger!” (slight exaggeration). I received the best care and from the best doctor ever! Dr. Mark Petroff is a perfectionist. I look amazing and feel wonderful after only two weeks post surgery! The face and neck lift look very natural. Examples: Turkey neck – gone, I can feel my trachea; pixie ear gone, he gave me ear lobes; my high cheek bones are back along with my happy smile. After interviewing a number of surgeons Dr. Petroff was the only facial plastic surgeon would make an incision hidden inside the hairline. I was out in the public within four days when I was able to have dinner at a restaurant with my son. He listened to my concerns and preformed a scar revision from work left by another doctor years ago. I am so grateful to another plastic surgeon who recommended Dr. Petroff. He told me that Dr. Petroff is the best at facial surgery and would send his mother to him for a facelift. I took his advice and I am so thankful I did. Oh, and by the way, it was not that painful at all, just a bit uncomfortable. Go for it!"- A.M. / Google / Jun 05, 2021
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.
