Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs cheek implants for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

The bone structure of your cheeks adds natural contours and highlights to your face that make you more attractive. Having flat cheeks affects the proportions of your face, and can make your other features appear larger or smaller. Cheek implants give your cheeks more definition, and add balance to your face.

Making the Decision for Cheek Implants

Your cheeks add significant definition to your face. When you are considering cheek implants, you should choose a qualified, experienced facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Majmundar is double board certified in otolaryngology – head neck surgery, as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. His experience and education mean that he provides you with the highest quality care. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Majmundar examines your face and cheek area to determine the best treatment plan. He also discusses the outcomes of the procedure so that you have realistic expectations of your cheek implants. We perform all of our surgeries in accredited outpatient surgery centers, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety.

Understanding the Surgery

Dr. Majmundar determines the best position for your cheek implants during your consultation appointment. In most cases, cheek implants are inserted through incisions inside the mouth.

If you are undergoing other facial procedures that require incisions, Dr. Majmundar may use incisions along your hairline, or along your lower eyelid. Dr. Majmundar creates a pocket in your cheek where the cheek implants are inserted. The cheek implant may be secured to bone or soft tissue. After the cheek implant is properly positioned, Dr. Majmundar closes the incisions with sutures.

What to Expect After the Surgery

You see the results of your cheek implants immediately after your procedure. Cheek implants add volume to your cheek area, so you may feel a tightening sensation as you become accustomed to the cheek implants. You can resume your normal activities immediately after your procedure. Your lips may feel numb, so you should exercise caution when eating and drinking, and you may have difficulty speaking. You should maintain a soft diet for three days after your procedure for cheek implants. The numbness should resolve within 24 hours. If you have sutures in your mouth, you need to rinse your mouth after eating to keep the area clean. You may have mild tenderness and swelling that should improve within three months. Elevating your head helps with the swelling. During the healing period, you may have limited sensation in your cheeks. Because the implants can shift, you should avoid all contact sports until you are fully healed.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
