What Does It Involve?

Cheek Augmentation / Cheek Implants is a common procedure used to bring balance to the facial structure by way of correcting a deficient cheek area due to congenital deficiency, age-related bone resorption or facial trauma. A weak cheek structure can make your face appear drawn and sunken. It may also give the appearance of a ‘fleshy’ lower face. The end result should be a balanced relationship between the structure of the face. Cheek Implant Surgery involves inserting and positioning an implant that will depend on your preferences, age, anatomy and your surgeon’s recommendation.


Cheek augmentation is an operation that usually takes 1.5 hours to complete using a general anaesthetic and usually includes an overnight stay at the hospital. In certain circumstances it can be performed as a day case.

After Surgery

Although most of the significant swelling will subside over a period of several days, prolonged mild swelling may prevent your final facial contour from becoming apparent for several months. Normal activity can discomfort can be controlled with prescribed medications. Swelling is sometimes significant immediately following surgery, usually peaking 24 to 48 hours afterward.



I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.


Doctor Mark is one of the best surgeon. Can’t complain about the result, simply perfect.


Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).


Mark is the consummate professional and will never entertain any unnecessary surgery. He is kind and considerate and listens. His skills are second to non and attention to detail, perfect. A wonderful experience which you can rarely say when having surgery.
