If I get cheek implants, will I have scars? What is the healing time?
Cheek implants usually mean an incision inside the mouth to place the implants. So, yes, there is a scar but not in an externally visible location. The incisions usually heal quickly but as with any surgery you need several weeks for things to settle down and potentially more time if there are concerns. Hope this helps.

Cheek implants are placed through the mouth or eyelids, avoiding any visible scars. Healing varies from surgeon to surgeon but at 3 weeks, your implants are unlikely to move. My personal preference is to use fat grafting over implants… its natural, part of you, and adjustable if you don’t like it.
