Using cheek implants to contour the face

High, prominent cheekbones are considered one of many elements to a beautiful face. Cheekbones are perfect at maintaining a youthful appearance while also enhancing the facial profile as an elegant and striking feature. Without them, patients may feel as though their poor definition in the cheeks causes them to look aged, overweight, tired, or even bloated. With cheek implants, Dr. Samuel Lin and his team at Boston Plastic Surgery can assist patients in looking and feeling their best with predictable, desirable, and noticeable results! 

How do cheek implants work? 

Like other implants used in the face, cheek implants are made to make a more balanced and prominent appearance of the face. During plastic surgery, cheek implants are placed on the cheek bone and held in place with the skin and muscles of the face. With proper insertion, patients will find that their face is better contoured and has a more youthful look. The implants themselves are shaped and placed depending on the unique needs of the patient. By working with a plastic surgeon in the Boston, MA area who has extensive experience in providing this and other facial surgeries, patients can rest easy knowing that their results will be natural-looking and beautiful! 

Who is a good candidate for cheek implants? 

Men and women unhappy with the profile of the face or feel as though their facial structure contributes to an aged appearance, cheek implants may be an effective way to address these concerns. During a consultation visit with Dr. Samuel Lin, patients can discuss how they want better balance and more defined cheeks and find out if they are a good fit for this treatment. It is important that patients also have realistic expectations regarding what can be achieved with plastic surgery procedures.
