Sunken cheeks: It sounds like it's not that the area below your cheekbones are sunken (this would be quite unusual) but maybe that your cheekbones and above, in the area around your eye, may be swollen giving you this appearance. I would return to see your doctor or an ENT to confirm the persistence of your sinus infection.
