Balance and harmony is at the core of most cosmetic facial surgery. With cheek augmentation this might involve improving the definition of congenitally low or ‘flat’ cheekbones or replacing volume lost through aging. Silicone cheek implants are safe and durable, enhancing the appearance of the cheeks and building a patient’s self-esteem.
Depending on their age, patients may choose implants to restore balance to their features, or in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure. For example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over the cheekbones to regain a fuller, more youthful appearance.
