Enhance Your Facial Structure With Cheek Implants for Men and Women
As you age you can sometimes lose the rounded appearance of your cheeks. Loss of muscle tone and fat beneath the skin may flatten the area around your cheekbones, and this loss of volume can be more noticeable even than other signs of aging like wrinkles. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, cheek implants can be performed on men and women alike, and help bring back that full, vibrant, youthful look we all crave. Men and women who have hollow cheeks and a flat and narrow face are the best candidates.
Cheek implant surgery — also called cheek augmentation — may take up to two hours depending on the implant material used and the technique required to perform the procedure. Incisions are made right below the eyelash or on either side of the mouth. Implants are then inserted in the lower mid-cheek area to fill out a narrow face, or in the upper outer cheek area to create a higher cheekbone. Men and women may choose to have both of these procedures completed to achieve a more balanced look.
Cheek implants come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and are custom-shaped to your facial profile to ensure the most natural results. Silicone cheek implants do not integrate with facial tissue, therefore they can be removed if needed. Cheek implants that integrate with natural bone tissue are made of hydroxyapatite and actually become part of your cheek following surgery, so this procedure is permanent. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, we know the way you look and feel about yourself is very important, and our doctors will work with you to decide which type of cheek implants best fit your unique needs. We offer only the safest, most effective treatment options.
