Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation)

Post-Operative instructions

You can expect to have some bruising and swelling following this surgery. Try to rest and sleep propped up with 2 -3 pillows during the first week after your surgery, to help reduce any swelling and bruising.

Strenuous exercise or anything that is likely to increase your blood pressure should not be resumed for 3 weeks.

You should massage the malar area with Lasonilâ„¢ 2-3 times a day to help reduce swelling and bruising. The swelling and bruising usually settles in 7-10 days.

You should avoid hot drinks if there is any numbness around the lips, and resume these only when the numbness disappears.

You will have sutures in your mouth, which are dissolvable. You should use mouthwash 2-3 times day, to keep the area clear of debris.

You should have a soft diet for the fi rst week, e.g soups, yoghurts and mashed vegetables. If you are prone to constipation, or the painkillers are making you constipated, you should use laxatives to avoid having to strain for at least the first week.

You may be discharged with some antibiotics, and it is important that you complete the course. Please avoid taking aspirin/anti inflammatory tablets as these can cause bleeding.

You may recommence your usual medication as soon as you can eat or drink, unless otherwise advised.
