Type of Cheek Implant? (photo)

I have cheek implants (span from orbital rim to about mid-nose) but they don't grant enough projection. Considering exchanging for bigger ones with more projection. Dr. says I STILL have a slight negative vector :( . Want cheeks like the models in the attached pics. What kind of implant will do this? (The more specific, the better; any links appreciated). Or could additional fat transfer help with this instead? Can enough fat be transferred (and survive) to give this much projection?

Bigger impalnts will make cheeks wider.  Seems like to want them to come foward more.  I would recommend putting fat on front of cheeks. We augment the cheeks with fat all the time.
