Sunken cheek due to tooth extraction. Advice?

Tooth Replaced

Head-cheek
Your Dentist can advise you on the options for you to have the tooth replaced. Without this replacement, the cheek will sink in.

you have abnormal weight loss. If you are not trying to lose weight intentionally, it could be malnutrition or even occult cancer. I think you should see your doctor for this problem.

Aging

Aging brings with it a multitude of changes many of which relate to the skin surface or the volume of tissue holding the skin firm in youth. Depending on which area is more bothersome to you, treatment can be tailored to meet your expectation and desires. Generally speaking, a cheek implant will work regardless of the age of the bony structure. It is placed underneath the deep tissues to rejuvenate and recontour the cheeks to give them a tighter appearance. The cheekbones-anatomically referred to as the zygomatic bones - are augmented by implanting the patient's own fat, harvested from the abdomen or hips. So-called malar implants made of plastic/silicone can be inserted primarily via an approach through the hair-bearing temples or through the mouth via an incision in the gum. I would sit down with your facial plastic surgeon and discuss your options, sometimes it is best to consider combining the treatment of your cheeks with treatment of the skin if that is relevant. I hope this information has been useful, for more information you can always check out my website regarding facial rejuvenation procedures and techniques. Sincerely, Dr. Tal Dagan

Cheek

Cheek implants are one way to address sagging cheeks. The mainly goal when addressing this type of problem is to improve the facial volume loss that has occurred in the area. Facial fat grafting, skin fillers, and midface lifting are other methods to improve the facial appearance. Visiting with a board certified facial plastic surgeon would allow for a more in depth discussion of your options

How can you fill out sunken cheeks?

Why are they sunken?

Is it weight loss? Is it tooth loss? If it is tooth loss, consider tooth replacement, as in implants bridges or last choice removable prosthesis.

Can bone on bone tmj cause cause cheeks to look sunken in?

Maybe

Head-cheek
If you are having painful symptoms from a tmj problem and not eating well, yes. Weight loss will cause the cheeks to look sunken in.

Many possibilities

You may be stressed, anxious, depressed, lacking sleep, dehydrated etc. If you are losing weight and losing appetite, have a thorough blood work from your DR. Take some multivitamins and drink lots of liquids. God Bless you!

Sinus infection 2 mos ago didnt quite go away with meds. Little better still blocked up, why do both cheeks under cheekbone appear sunken in now?

Sunken cheeks

Sinusitis
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.

Dr. Harold Peltan answered:

I USED NEUTROGENA SKIN FIRMING CREAM ONE TIME AND MY FACE HAS SUNKEN IN!!!!! MY SKIN PULLED TIGHT, EYES AND CHEEKS HOLLOW. HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST?

Usually a few days

Head-eye
The effects of skin tightening creams are normally temporary, lasting from one to a few days. For such an unusual reaction as you describe, no one can say. Wash it off, and go see your doctor. Be sure to take before and after pictures with you so your doctor can see the full effect you ascribe to the skin cream. Also, take your actual bottle of skin cream with you.

i woke up with my face feeling odd i noticed my cheeks looked weird i have a portion that is swollen and my skin is sunken in on top and bottum ?

Office visit

Angioedema
I don't have a clear picture, but on the off chance that this is angioedema or something worse, a physician's office visit is indicated if it's not gone in a few hours, or if it recurs.
