Cheek Augmentation Candidates By on August 16, 2011


The appearance of different facial features will affect your overall appearance in many different ways. The size, shape, and contours of the nose can affect your other facial features, for instance. The same goes for the appearance of your eyes.Sagging or drooping of the eyelids or wrinkles around the eye area can have a major effect as well, making you look older or tired even if your face is otherwise unwrinkled. And of course, the years of concern can etch themselves onto your forehead, leading to major furrows and folds that make you seem worried even if you aren’t worried at all.

When you come to the Austin and San Antonio plastic surgery centers of Dr. Constance Barone, she will use her skill and expertise as a surgeon to determine the best option that will meet your aesthetic goals. Since each patient has different needs, she will take the time necessary to assess the needs of each patient she meets in order to customize and effective treatment plan.

In some cases, the best option may be the use of cheek implants in order to increase the prominence and the contours of the cheekbones. We mentioned above that just one facial feature can affect other facial features, and that’s certainly the case with cheekbones. You may find that your smile seems brighter and your overall being seems more vibrant just by getting cheek implants. Let’s take a quick look at what cheek implants are and who are good candidates for cheek augmentation surgery.

Cheek implants are simply implants that are placed beneath the skin in order to enhance the overall appearance of the cheekbones. These cheek implants can come in many different sizes and shapes, and their consistency can vary as well depending on the needs of the patient. (There are also facial implants available for the chin as well as the lips.) During the cheek augmentation surgery, incisions will be made either within the mouth or in the lower eyelid area in order to insert the cheek implants. If you are undergoing another facial plastic surgery procedure, the implants may be inserted through other incisions.

The best candidates for cheek augmentation surgery are people who have cheekbones that are not prominent and are in good general health. These patients should also have a positive attitude about surgery and should not have been coerced into getting surgery by another person. Remember, it’s your face and your body, so only you should make decisions about any sort of surgery. It’s also important that patients not have any medical conditions that may not make them eligible for surgery.

In addition, if you are undergoing a full makeover, you may be a good candidate for cheek implants. An extreme makeover means that you can undergo multiple facial surgery procedures at one time, such as San Antonio rhinoplasty, a facelift, or a browlift. The exact surgeries that you will undergo will be determined during your consultation with Dr. Barone.
