Poorly defined, flat or low cheek bones that are out of balance with the chin and face. This leads to a rounded face rather than the more preferred triangular face. High cheek bones support and uplift the skin and muscles of the cheeks, assisting in the prevention of a premature aged and wrinkled appearance.
Facial Implants (permanent)
Over the past decade, silicone cheek implants have become increasingly used in cosmetic plastic surgery. The cheek implants used have contoured designs, which now mould accurately to a patient’s face.
Modern cheek implants are soft and flexible allowing for insertion through small incisions either in the lower eyelid or intra oral (inside the mouth). The implant is positioned securely onto the surface of the cheekbone to reduce the potential for the implants to move. Results are permanent, however there are some risks, which will be discussed thoroughly.
Injectable Cheek Enhancement (lasts around 1 year)
This revolutionary new treatment has been described as a “a cheek implant in a syringe” and is now available for enhancement of facial features after hollowing due to fatty tissue loss or for more sculpted or defined chin or cheeks. This quick non-surgical treatment provides instant benefit using a very safe clear gel similar to the product used widely for dermal filler injections. This product is naturally occurring and non-animal derived so the chance of any reaction is extremely small. To date, this type of filler has been used safely and effectively in more than 1,500,000 treatments in 60 countries worldwide.
The treatment takes around 20 minutes in the rooms and requires only a short downtime.
