Drs. Fleming and Mayer have multiple years’ experience performing cheek augmentation with cheek implants in Beverly Hills. By skillfully placing silicone cheek implants in carefully selected facial locations, they create remarkable yet natural-looking facial transformations. In the paragraphs below, Drs. Fleming and Mayer explain cheek augmentation and the results their cheek implants Beverly Hills patients can achieve through this procedure.
In Western civilization, “high” cheekbones are generally considered ideal. Prominent cheek bones improve facial contour and accentuate the eyes. Cheek implants can also be used to correct hollowness directly under the cheek bone.
There are 3 different types of implants, which come in a variety of sizes so that each Beverly Hills cheek implants patient can receive a customized fit and the best cheek augmentation results. These are:
Cheek implants (malar): These are placed directly on the cheek bones to increase prominence or give high cheek bones.
Below the cheek (submalar): These are placed just under the cheek bone to correct a hollow, or sunken in, appearance and to create more fullness.
Combined (malar/submalar): These implants go over and below the cheek bone to increase prominence and to correct hollowness under the cheek at the same time.
Cheek implants are made of medical grade solid silicone. They are usually placed through incisions in the mouth so there are no visible scars from this procedure.
There are minimal risks of infection, bleeding, rejection or asymmetry, and very rare occurrence of nerve injury. The implant(s) could move if the patient suffers a severe blow to the cheek(s) before final healing, necessitating repositioning.
