Have the sculpted cheekbones you’ve always wanted.
While prominent cheekbones may define classic beauty, not everyone is born with them. Those who once had well-defined cheeks may find they’ve diminished over time due to the aging process.
Cheek augmentation, also known as malar augmentation, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to either create sculpted cheekbones or recreate those that have been lost to sagging skin. With cheek augmentation, cheek implants are used to add volume and lift. Cheek implants are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, so they can be customized to each person’s individual needs. The surgical technique used to place the implants is based on their size and location.
Although cheek implants are generally the preferred way to enhance the cheekbones, a facelift may be used to reposition sagging cheeks. If just a small amount of volume is needed, facial fillers such as Voluma®, Restylane® or Perlane® may be used to enhance the contours of the face. Facial liposculpture is another excellent way to address the signs of aging without surgery. Fat from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, is injected into the cheek tissues for long-lasting fullness, contour and lift.
The best way to know whether cheek augmentation is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, your surgical and non-surgical options, financing, and any concerns or questions you may have.
The first step is to schedule an appointment. Scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
