What is Cheek Implants?
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas which may be recessed or flat.
Now, thanks to modern technology, there is a safe, permanent method to provide those high cheekbones sought after by men and women worldwide. Cheek Implants give our patients a more vibrant and attractive look of distinction.
This procedures can also benefit those with asymmetries or congenital defects. In patients 38-50 years old, Cheek Implants can improve the midfacial contour and restore sagging midfacial soft tissues, thus postponing the need for a facelift. For Ajmal Clinic patients receiving a facelift, Cheek Implants can ensure longer-lasting results.
Safety of Cheek Implants
Facial Implants have proven to provide a safe, predictable, low-cost, low-risk cosmetic surgical procedure. To date, millions of facial implants made from non-toxic materials such as silicone and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) have been implanted, with no reported cases of allergic reaction. The implants, designed specifically for use in the midfacial cheek area and the chin come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. These implants can be custom-trimmed by your surgeon for a more natural fit.
How is the procedure done?
Cheek Implant procedures can be performed on an out-patient basis. They can be performed using general anesthesia with the patient asleep, or using a local anesthesia to numb the treated area while the patient remains awake.
