What to Expect for Your Cheekago™ Procedure

Cheekago™ is a comprehensive treatment plan that begins with a personalized consultation. Dr. Caughlin evaluates your facial structure and goals to tailor a procedure that achieves a sharp, contoured look, enhancing the natural beauty of your lower face and jawline.

Your Cheekago™ Consultation

Your journey starts with a virtual or in-person consultation. Dr. Caughlin assesses your suitability for the procedure, using a three-dimensional facial analysis to show you your aesthetic objectives and how Cheekago™ can transform your facial contours.

How to Prepare for Your Cheekago™

Preparation involves following Dr. Caughlin’s expert advice to ensure the best possible outcome. This includes guidelines on lifestyle adjustments and pre-treatment care.

During Your Cheekago™ Procedure

Cheekago™ combines buccal fat removal, laser precision, and muscle tightening to achieve a harmonious facial balance. Depending on your specific needs, it could include removing buccal fat, using laser technology to target superficial layers, and techniques to tighten the muscles of the face. Dr. Caughlin’s innovative addition of buccinator mucosa and muscle treatment to the procedure helps achieve sharper jawlines and addresses the pre-jowl sag. The goal is to create a more harmonious balance between all facial features, leading to a noticeable yet natural transformation.

Cheekago™ Aftercare & Recovery Timeline

Following your Cheekago™ procedure, it's normal to experience some swelling and bruising. This is a natural part of the healing process. To support your recovery:

  • Compression Wrap: We recommend wearing the compression wrap for four to five days post-surgery. This helps minimize swelling and supports the newly contoured areas.
  • Mouth Packing: The packing placed in your mouth should be removed two hours after the surgery.
  • Medications: Continue taking any prescribed medications, including antibiotics, as directed.
  • Diet Recommendations: Adopt a low-sodium diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Avoid consuming foods high in sodium as these can contribute to swelling.
  • Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth regularly. After eating or drinking, use the mouth rinse provided to you to keep the area clean and aid in healing.
You should start seeing changes about two weeks after the procedure. The complete and final results typically take about three to six months to fully develop. During this period, the contours of your face will become more defined as the swelling subsides and the area heals.
