Treating asymmetric cheeks

It is very difficult to go in and reduce a high cheekbone without creating a defect or an irregularity.  It is best to either accept the asymmetry or have a small implant placed on the opposite side to match the higher cheek.  This type of implant is placed through the intraoral approach as an outpatient procedure.
