What is the recovery time after cheekbone surgery?
The recovery time after cheekbone surgery that uses implants of fillers is between four and six weeks. The surgery to augment the cheekbones is usually an outpatient surgery, which means the patient does not need to spend a night in the hospital. They can return to work after five days of rest. Sutures are taken out within a week after surgery, and absorbable sutures are gone within 10 days.
