Cheek implants are performed for patients who have a flat maxilla and a flat cheek profile with volume loss in the mid-face. Cheek implants are  composed of silastic and are usually placed through an intra oral incision under a brief general anesthesia. In our practice, we have been using Implantech cheek implants for the last 25 years with an excellent success rate. The implants are manufactured in a large variety of sizes and shapes which is best determined at the time of the consultation and examination.

 Hi, I have performed many Cheek Augmentations using cheek implants for over 30 years.  We have many out of state and international patients that come to have us place their cheek implants.  It's about a 30 minute surgery under a general anesthetic and patients can fly back home 5-7 days after the surgery.  Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces.  Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front.  Cheek augmentation with a dermal filler or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks that will feminize the entire face.  Non smiling photos of your face from the front and side would help in the evaluation.

Hope this helps.

You're going to want an expert, so don't let distance dissuade you. More important than the type of cheek augmentation is finding someone who is expert in choosing and placing for your facial anatomy. Please see a professional for an evaluation, I suggest Joe Niamtu.  Best, Dr. Emer

Hello and thank you for your question. If you have this procedure, I highly recommend medpor cheek implants with screw fixation.  These are far superior to silicone cheek implants, which have a high rate of malrotation over time in the cheek. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.
