Prominent cheekbones are associated with youthfulness and beauty. For those who have lost volume or desire more fullness in their cheeks, cheek implants can improve facial contours and create a more proportionate, youthful face. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Hahn of the Maryland Center for Facial Plastic Surgery performs cheek implants for patients throughout the Baltimore, Towson, Columbia, and surrounding communities looking to improve their facial volume and contours.
What is a Cheek Implant?
Cheek implants or cheek augmentation is a surgical procedure aimed at creating fuller, more prominent cheekbones. The implants are designed to augment specific regions of the cheek such as the cheekbone or malar region and mid cheek or submalar region, by improving facial contours and adding definition to the cheek area. Malar implants provide projection of the cheekbones by direct placement over the bony structure. Submalar implants round out a sunken or hollowed appearance of the cheeks to provide more balance and support to the midface. Lastly, a combined cheek implant improves both areas simultaneously.
What are the Benefits of a Cheek Implant?
Prominent cheeks are aesthetically pleasing, however, for some, the cheeks can be poorly developed or lose volume as a result of aging, resulting in a flattened appearance of the face. Some of the benefits of cheek implants include:
- Improved projection and definition of the cheekbones
- Increased volume in the mid-face
- Improved facial contours and youthfulness
How is a Cheek Implant Performed?
A cheek implant is performed through a small incision inside your upper lip. A precise pocket is made along the cheekbone where the implant, which is made from a solid but flexible material such as silicone or porous polyethylene (Medpor®), can be secured.
