For some reason, I always think of young people as getting cheek implants. But I’m in my early 60s and feel that my cheeks have lost a lot of volume. Is this something that cheek implants could help with? Are they ever used to combat aging signs like this?
Absolutely, this is a very good procedure to add to some facelifts.
I'd love to get cheek implants but I have a hard to envisioning where the incisions would be made so that they're not visible. Where are they made?
All the cheek implants I use are made of soft silastic material and feel totally natural and are fully accepted by the body. The incisions I use for cheek implants are under the upper lip and are completely hidden and never seen.
Question: I have severe acne on my face, and especially my cheeks. I really want to have cheek implants, but I am worried that this procedure will be a hindrance to improving my skin condition. Is this something I should be worried about?
Answer: Most implants are put in from under the upper lip and against the cheek bone itself; so should have no effect on your acne problems.
I'd like to get cheek implants. How will the doctor decide which cheek shape is best for me?
I only use certain very reliable cheek implants both from an aesthetic concern and from a safety concern, (Implantech conform). These can be ordered in any size needed and trimmed appropriately for each individual patient.
