What is Cheek Implants?

Cheek implants is a cosmetic procedure that can help change the basic structure of the face to give a fuller, more balanced look. By placing an implant within the cheek, it can bring this area into a more harmonious balance with the rest of the face. Cheek implants can be performed for young patients to help bring better balance to their facial features. Or it can also be performed on older patients to help fill out faces that appear sunken or tired. Cheek implants can be performed alone or in conjunction with another procedure, such as rhinoplasty, so that both of these traits are better proportioned with each other. Sterile synthetics or biological implants are surgically inserted into the cheek. The implants used can vary in size and shape. The doctor performs the procedure by creating a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth, a pocket is then made and the implant is inserted. The incision is then closed. The minor changes a cheek implant produces can be remarkable.
