What are the benefits, if any, of getting cheek implants rather than having injectable fillers in this area?
The most obvious benefit that you will get from having cheek implants placed instead of injectable fillers is that the cheek implants are permanent. Although several different injectable fillers can last up to a year in the cheeks, none of them will be around longer than cheek implants will. Cheek implants do require a surgical procedure and several days for recovery while injectable fillers can be performed in the office with immediate return to normal activity.
