Cheek Augmentation Palm Beach Gardens
My cheeks are flat and have lost volume. How can I replace it?
The cheeks are an important feature of the midface that can project a youthful look when they are full. Fillers allow us to augment lost volume with minimal downtime. For patients who are interested in a more permanent solution, malar implants can be used.
These implants are generally made from soft silicone material and sit over the bone of the cheek to push overlying fat, muscle and skin outwards. Surgery is needed and incisions are usually done through the mouth and under the lip. Absorbable sutures are used to close the incision and swelling is the most common side effect.
Once healing is complete, the implants should impart a youthful heart shaped appearance to your face.
