How to Recover from a Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Augmentation, Guilford, CT

Makeup is one of the best ways for you to transform your complexion and basically your entire physical appearance. If you feel like you are constantly having to contour your cheeks with highlighter and bronzer to help them look more pronounced, then it may be time to really consider getting a cheek augmentation. As a way to help add more volume and contour to your cheeks, a cheek augmentation can help you say goodbye to your daily contouring routine. After surgery, though, it’s important that you make sure that you know how to recover as smoothly as possible. But how? Let’s take a closer look and see.

Liquid Diet

If Dr. Price places your cheek implants on the inside of your mouth through small incisions, he may recommend that you stick to a strict liquid diet while your mouth heals. Why? Chewing traditional food can damage the incision site and make it more difficult for your mouth to heal. During your initial consultation, Dr Price will discuss whether or not he thinks it will be a necessary part of your recovery to go on a liquid diet.


Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may as well be your best friend while you are recovering from a surgical procedure like cheek implants. Why? Because they are a non-addictive way to get rid of pain, and inflammation. And the sooner your pain and inflammation go away, the sooner you will be able to fully enjoy your results.

Rest and Relax

We encourage all of our cheek implant patients to take at least a couple of days off of work. By allowing your body some time to rest and stay in bed, you can help to heal up your body’s natural healing response.

If you have cheeks that just aren’t as prominent as you wish, then it may be time to consider getting some cheek implants from Dr. Price. To schedule your consultation, contact us at our Guildford office and call us at (203) 453-6635.
