Cheek implants

Cheek enhancement surgery is best indicated when the development of the cheek down is deficient. There is a continuum of treatment options between nonsurgical and surgical options.

3D imaging, assessment and simulations are a powerful mechanism to understand the facial shape and the potential implications of change. They also allow measurement of the target projection and customised sizing for the cheek implants.

Volume augmentation with injectable filler is a good way to enhance the volume when smaller changes are desirable. When the target changes a more significant, the firm support underneath the soft tissues can be enhanced with implants for a more natural appearance.

In our practice where prefer to use porous polyethylene implants rather than silicon implants, and they are always customised to some degree to the patient's facial configuration.

Facial asymmetry is always part of our natural shape and cannot be completely overcome. A degree of improvement in facial symmetry is generally possible as part of the cheek enhancement treatments.
