Question

Please can you give me more info about cheek implants? I am 43 years old.

Answer

With regards to cheek augmentation with implants, I tend to use the Medpor implants and typically when planning for the surgery involves 3-D imaging and simulation.

The procedure is eminently suitable to achieve correction of underdeveloped cheek bone structure, and less suitable for highlighting the cheekbones in someone who typically has normal development.

There are situations when people ask me about cheek augmentation because they want to produce more contrast against the relatively full lower face. This type of surgery is inappropriate and the better answer is to reduce the volume of the lower face then to enhance the cheekbone area.

All these aspects become a lot clearer when evaluating the facial shape in 3-D as well as the target shape that you would like to achieve.
