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.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

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 corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to 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.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. 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.
