High cheekbones are essential for good facial harmony and they give the face a nice attractive angular look. Flat cheekbones emphasize the fullness of the midface. If you wish the high cheekbone look as seen in many models, these implants may help.
These are inserted through a small incision in the upper gum line and placed over the cheek bone to enlarge and raise the top of the cheek area. Recovery from this surgery is quick and most patients can be socially acceptable within 1 to 2 weeks.
A collapsed mid face with shrinkage of the cheek mound leads to a tired appearance. This starts to occur in the forties. This can be corrected by a mid cheek implant. These implants are similar to cheek bone implants however are placed in a different position. Recovery time is similar to cheek bone augmentation.
