Enhance the Facial Structure with Cheek Implants

Posted February 24, 2017


Losing too much weight can cause the cheeks to sink in and make them look concave. Cheek implants, fillers, or any other form of augmentation procedure are effective options for enhancing your overall facial structure. They can make your cheeks look fuller, rounder, and more attractive.

Having the perfect pair of sculpted cheekbones and rounded cheeks is a goal that many people want to achieve, but due to a variety of factors such as aging, genetics, and weight loss, it may not be possible to achieve through natural methods alone. They can, however, be procured through plastic surgery.

A cheek implant is an ideal surgical option for cheek augmentation. There are nonsurgical and less invasive treatment options such as cheek fillers but the results acquired from these methods do not last as long as the implants. Cheek implants will help restore lost volume and add plumpness and definition to your cheeks, enhancing your overall facial appearance.

What Are Cheek Implants and Why Opt for Them?

There are two options available to those who want cheek implants. The silicone option does not combine with the tissue and they are removable. The hydroxyapatite option integrates with bone tissue and is a permanent solution, unlike fillers and injectables. Both options are extremely safe and effective. They can help restore your youthfulness and add more volume.

Cheek implants are the perfect solution to enhance cheeks that have lost volume and attractiveness with age and gravity. Changes in the bone structure with age, weight loss, bad health, and hormonal changes are some of the contributing factors that can lead to sagging and wrinkled skin in the cheek area and make them appear hollowed.

With changes in the bone structure and the skin becoming slack and loose in the cheek area the cheeks can lose their shape and prominence. As a result, the muscles and skin will not be able to sit over the cheekbones properly.

Cheek implants can be inserted into the face to add definition to the parts of the face where the bone structure has lost its prominence. Cheek implants can also be shaped to match the facial structure of any patient.

What Can Cheek Implants Help Achieve?

Cheek implants will help correct the following facial issues:

• Deflated cheeks and a gaunt appearance
• Cheeks that have lost shape, definition, and contour
• Wrinkles, lines, and bags in the cheeks

If you have one or more of the following problems, then you are a suitable candidate to undergo cheek augmentation. You will also need to have realistic expectations about the results you obtain and be in good health.

Advantages of Cheek Implants

Cheek implants will not only help improve the aesthetic appeal of your face but will also help rejuvenate your youthful appearance. Cheek implants provide results that are longer lasting and more permanent than fillers. After the procedure, you will have fuller, contoured cheeks and an improved appearance.
