Cheek Augmentation: Q&AAsk a Question
Facial Implants for Widening Gaunt Face?
I am interested in restoring my looks after a bad orthodontic experience that has changed my bone structure and soft tissues, making me look gaunt and less full in the cheeks, lips and jaw. Would jaw implants help widen my face or would just a submalar cheek implant provide enough fullness? My jaw is not as wide as it used to be. I am afraid of some of the risks, mostly the potential nerve damage. How common is it for problems to arise? I have naturally high cheek bones and don't want that to be lost. Would the submalar implant compliment that?
