Prominent or high cheek bones are often part of an aesthetic and well balanced face. They help highlight the middle part of the face, promote a more youthful appearance, and can contribute to making the nose and chin smaller in certain patients. Women know this facial characteristic well by the common method of applying darker make-up underneath the cheekbone area and lighter make-up across it in an effort to highlight its prominence. Flat cheek areas are usually the result of an underlying deficient bone structure. The cheek area is easily enhanced by the placement of an implant on top of the bone. Today's contemporary implant styles allow a range of different shaped implants to be used, selectively highlighting specific portions of the cheek area. Sagging cheeks (bags under the eyes and below the cheekbone) from aging is due to the skin and underlying soft tissue 'falling off of the bone' as the ligaments weaken over time. This may be helped by a cheek implant but may also require a cheek lift (midface lift) to resuspend the drooping soft tissue back up on the cheekbone.
Dr. Eppley not only performs cheek augmentation to help his facial aesthetic patients. He also performs facelift, Botox, in addition to helping Indianapolis rhinoplasty patients achieve their desired facial profile. He also offers Indianapolis custom implants patients facial implant procedures that are specifically tailored to their aesthetic or reconstructive needs.
