Cheek Implants for a more masculine face?
I have performed Cheek augmentation with Cheek Implants for over 20 years and IMHO, you are in trouble if you need to tell your plastic and cosmetic surgeon what type, size and/or shape of cheek implant to use in order to make your face more angular and ruggedly handsome. The first rule in plastic surgery, IMO, is the proper aesthetic judgement in knowing how to make the face/body more attractive.

Cheek Implants for Definitions
Silicone implant placement is an excellent technique to improve cheek definition. The procedure is done through an intra-oral incision. Another less invasive technique to augment the cheeks is the injection of fillers or the patient's own fat.
