What should I expect post-operatively?

Don't be alarmed at the presence of bruising and swelling. The swelling will begin to disappear within the first seven days. Many patients return to work with the help of camouflaging cosmetics at about five days post-operative.

What are the implants made from?

Several types of substances are used in cheek augmentation surgery but typically solid silicone is preferred. These come in various shapes and sizes to fit different faces. One benefit of using a solid implant is that it can be removed if there are any problems if necessary.
