High cheekbones are among the signs of superior beauty. While not everyone is born with good facial proportions, you always have the option to have cheekbone surgery. Also known as cheekbone augmentation, cheek bone lift, or correction, the procedure can help balance or improve your facial symmetry. You may consider high cheek bones surgery to fix hollow or underdeveloped cheekbones.
Bony prominences on the face, like the cheek, can affect your overall appearance and appeal. Cosmetic surgeons can perform high cheek bones surgery to change the shape of your face, too. The procedure may be performed along with others like a face lift, rhinoplasty, eyelid lift, or brow lift.
Some cosmetic surgeons may opt to inject fillers to achieve a high cheekbone, but lipofilling or the insertion of a subcutaneous implant or a prosthesis may be recommended to achieve long-term results that are permanent. Dermal fillers are non-surgical and may correct hollow cheekbones. Reputable cosmetic surgeons use state of the art dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma with Lidocaine. Its results can last for up to 18 months.
Cheek bone surgery can further emphasize the cheekbones. It involves using implants like solid silicone polymer, Gore-Tex, and high-density permeable polyethylene to boost the projection of the cheekbones. The cosmetic surgeon cuts inside the upper oral cavity above the gumline to provide an area where implants can be inserted. Cheek implant surgery can be completed in 30 minutes per side, and you can typically recover from it in 10 days.
There are three types of high cheek bones implants. The most common is malar, which has a typical shape and placed in the tissue areas of the cheekbones, resulting in a more prominent and higher contour look Submalar implants are used to augment the middle of the face, especially when the patient appears emaciated or skinny. Some surgeons may use combined submalar and malar implants to augment both the mid face and cheekbones.
