Question:

Where are the scars located after going through a cheek augmentation? Are they very noticeable?

Answer:

The incisions that are used for a cheek augmentation in our practice are up underneath the upper lip.  In other words there are no incisions on the outside of the face and they allow placement of the cheek implants going through the mouth so as to avoid an external incision.  The sutures are dissolvable and placed in that location as well
