Cheek implants are one of the most common procedures if you are looking for a more prominent facial expression. The total perception of your face will be enhanced and you will have a younger appearance.

How will surgery be performed?

The implant will be placed directly on the cheekbones to increase prominence or to heighten them. The implant material, malar, is made of medical grade solid silicone, which can remain in place either by internal pressure from the sack or be attached to the bone with screws and to the muscle with sutures. The implant is located via the mouth to avoid any visible scars.

What kind of anaesthesia will be needed?

Local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia in consultation with your anaesthetist.

How long will surgery take?

About one hour.

Will I feel pain afterwards?

Not too much pain, controlled by medication. A burning sensation is possible.

How long is recovery?

You can usually leave the same day. The recovery time will vary between one and two weeks, after which full- time work is again possible.

The final result of the surgery becomes apparent after two months.

Will there be bruising and swelling?

Bruises are very rare and the swelling may last approximately two weeks.

Will I have to remove the stitches?

Sutures will be used which do not need to be removed.

Will there be scars?

Completely invisible.

    “Riverway to Cu Chi”

    Cu Chi Tunnels is a massive system of tunnels combining to form an underground city during the American/Vietnam War. It has become a popular and must-see destination for many travellers. Buffalo Tours would like to offer you a new and exceptional way to discover this historical site: the trip combines a cruise, cultural experiences and history.

    At its height, the tunnel system stretched over 250 kilometres from Saigon to the Cambodian border and was three levels deep. The network included innumerable trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centres and kitchens. Today the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving the visitor a unique experience and a feel for what underground life in the American/Vietnam war must have been like. The tunnels have been widened for your benefit (otherwise you would not be able to enter them!).

    Leaving Saigon in the early morning, we board our speed boat from Saigon dock and leave the bustling city behind. From the boat, the city skyline gradually fades and is soon replaced by lush river banks. From the boat you can observe the daily life on the river. Along the way, you will stop at a lively market of Binh Duong Province, renowned for its variety of produce, from fresh seafood to flowers, fruits and traditional herbs. After visiting the market, you will enjoy a tea break in a local house before continuing to Cu Chi.

    Upon arrival at Cu Chi, you will watch a short introductory video on the tunnels’ construction. You will then spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. Also on display are various man traps and the remains of an American tank, as well as numerous bomb craters made by 500-pound bombs dropped by B52 bombers. You then drive back to Ho Chi Minh City, arriving at approximately 2:00pm.
