cheek implants
May 9, 2000

read some people asking about cost of plastic surgery, I had cheek implants 6 weeks ago, cost $4600 they were done in the hospital. I feel much better about myself although people do notice a difference in my appearance. I tell them I've gain weight. Recovery was a good two weeks, swelling was BIG but not too painful. Please get good references from other people as I did and ask questions! My doctor was very good and would not do just anyone or anything. And by the way I also tried collagen injections,and they never did last long enough, the money I spent on the injections I could of paid half of the cheek implants, also I finance with a medical finance company.Good Luck!
