Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation)
Many people find that having cheek implant surgery helps to restore a more youthful appearance, especially for mature patients who have noted a hollow look in the mid-face due to aging. For these patients, cheek implants can improve the contour of the mid-face and restore sagging tissues. Younger patients who have weak cheekbones find that the procedure gives them a more attractive appearance by improving the 3D facial structure of the midface, leading to harmony of the patient’s facial form.
Cheek implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The one that is right for you will be determined during your consultation. We even have the ability to custom fit them, though this is rarely necessary.
After your surgery, movement of your mouth and lips will be limited for a period of time. Swelling and bruising that is noticeable to other people will usually last about a week to ten days.
