Are Cheek Implants Right for Me?

If you want to improve the contour of your cheeks, there are several options to choose from, including cheek implants. Cheek implants can put back the fullness in your cheeks, and help you achieve the facial balance you desire. But one important question you should ask is – Are cheek implants right for me.

What are cheek implants?
Cheek implants are used in cheek augmentation surgery to address volume loss in the cheeks, which is usually the result of aging or weight loss. Recreating lost contours in the mid-face, is a great way to restore a more youthful appearance.

Cheek implants are available in different shapes, styles, and sizes, and can therefore be customized to fit the unique needs and aesthetic goals of each patient. Cheek augmentation surgery is a relatively simple procedure, in which implants are inserted through an incision made inside the mouth.

Are cheek implants right for you?
If your cheeks have a gaunt, hollow appearance, and you would like to permanently restore fullness to the mid-face, cheek implants may be the right option for you. Cheek implants shore up the underlying facial structure and add the scaffolding needed to give the face a fuller, lifted appearance.

Cheek implants are also a good option for men and women with a naturally flat face, or weak cheek structure.

Candidates for cheek augmentation with implants should also be in good health.

If you are considering cheek implants it’s always advisable to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation, to determine if cheek implants are right for you.
