Cheek implants also known as submalar & malar augmentation are implants that improve the contours of the face and the structure of the cheeks.
Cheek implants come in many shapes & sizes, the ideal shape and size for you can be discussed during your consultation with our surgeon.
The procedure for cheek implants take approximately 30-45 minutes and is performed under local or general anaesthetic, incisions are made through the upper lip or the lower eyelid. Swelling in the lower eye and cheek bone is common and will fully heal within 1-2 weeks.
Prominent high cheek bones is the look often desired by women and associated with being beautiful, this can now be achieved with cheek implants.
Cheek implants can benefit those who are suffering from the signs of ageing or the natural process of gravity, and want to recreate a look from their younger days or simply for those young or old who have less prominent cheeks and wish to enhance their looks,, and give a nice balance to their facial features.
Cheek implants can also be combined with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures, such as brow lifts, chin implants & face lifts. As with all cosmetic surgery you should be of reasonably good health and have realistic expectations about what you want to achieve in the outcome of your surgery. As long as you are realistic you will be pleased with your results.
Cheek implants will provide volume to the cheek area of your face giving you a more youthful appearance.
The effects of cheek implants are often quite dramatic and will leave you with a chiselled looking bone structure, this can give your face a striking appearance.
Chiselled cheekbones are often thought of as being beautiful and give a sexier appearance.
Cheek implants are popular amongst women but are becoming increasingly popular amongst men too, giving men a more defined angular masculine look.
It is recommended that you have cheek surgery if you are 18 or over because if you are any younger you are likely to have 'puppy fat' and will not be fully developed, cheek implants will not look natural once you have fully developed and your 'puppy fat' has disappeared.
Cheek implants are completely safe and are usually chosen by individuals who have a flat cheekbone and are looking for more definition, flat cheekbones can be the result of age or it could be just that you were born that way and inherited it from your parents, on the other hand some people may have perfectly normal cheekbones but wish to enhance them even more.
Many models and actresses have beautiful defined cheekbones and many normal women are now wanting to achieve this look, making them feel youthful, beautiful, confident & sexy, a real boost to a persons confidence and self esteem.
Cheekbones are the most important feature on a persons face as they give balance to the face and highlight the eyes - flat cheekbones can make your nose look larger and your chin look smaller than it actually is, so cheek implants improve the overall facial harmony.
Another reason people choose cheek implants is because of the results of weight loss – severe weight loss can leave skin sagging in that area sometimes making you look gaunt. Cheek implants will dramatically improve this, leaving you with fuller defined cheeks.
