Not Born with Strong Cheekbones? You May Benefit from Cheek Implants

Published on March 30, 2018

Some people are blessed with classically attractive features. Their faces are symmetrical with desirable contours that cause envy in everyone around them. Thanks to modern medicine, you can now have these desirable features as well.

Get Those Enviable Cheeks

One feature that makes one’s face symmetrical and attractive is strong cheekbones. They give your face appealing contours and extra definition.

Strong cheekbones are something you are born with, but there is still good news for people who were not as lucky: Cosmetic surgery gives you the opportunity to improve your appearance with cheek implants.

Cheek implants add definition, volume, and contours to your cheeks, making you look younger and more attractive. This aesthetic enhancement is ideal for people whose faces have lost volume due to age and other factors. It is also suitable for people who have small cheekbones.

Cheek implants, or malar implants, have been used in cosmetic procedures since the 1950s. They are an effective way of improving one’s looks without changing any other aspect of their face. These implants are made of synthetic materials that can be flexible or rigid. They come in all shapes and sizes to suit each individual patient’s needs.

Types of Cheek Implants

There are two types of cheek implants: malar and submalar. Malar implants are placed inside the malar prominence, the most prominent area of the cheekbone. These implants result in cheekbones with higher arches, making the facial profile more defined and attractive. Malar implants are used to treat malar hypoplasia, or small cheekbones.

Submalar implants are used to make the cheeks appear fuller by enhancing the fleshy part of the area. These implants are placed under the malar prominence, restoring fullness and volume to the cheeks. Submalar implants help reduce a sunken, tired appearance and make you look younger and more energetic.

You may also be able to choose a combined procedure where the surgeon will place malar and submalar implants to give your face a whole new look. With higher cheekbones and fuller cheeks, your face can appear more accentuated and youthful.

The Benefits of Cheek Implants

Cheek augmentation with implants can improve your facial appearance. Cheek implants help restore healthy volume and fullness to your entire face, making you look years younger. This procedure is ideal for people who were born with malar hypoplasia. It helps accentuate their cheeks, giving them a fuller, more accentuated appearance.

Cheek implants also fill out your face, making you look healthy and energetic. This is the best option for people who have been ill, have lost a substantial amount of weight, or have lost facial volume due to aging. Malar and submalar implants give your face a softer, more rounded appearance, making you look less tired and more cheerful. All of these changes can help to boost your self-esteem and confidence.
