Can I Achieve A High Cheek Bone Look With Cheek Implants?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I’ve been looking into getting cheek implants for a while now, and I came across your helpful blog on my numerous exhaustive searches on the Internet for cheek implants. I was hoping I could get your opinion on one big question that I have- what kind of implants will give me the high prominent cheeks look, but with some fullness in the front of the face too. (The pictures show the look that I’m after) (I’d also like to point out that those pictures are just for reference, I do know that cheek implants won’t turn me into Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) want both, the definition from the side, the high placement and also some frontal fullness. Thank you.
A: While there are many different styles of cheek implants, it is important to realize that the look you are after is not likely to be achieved by standard stock implants. If you translate the look you are after to the type of cheek implants available, it is fairly easy to see that no such cheek implant style exists. (at least none that I would feel comfortable placing hoping to achieve that type of cheek augmentation effect) In my opinion, only custom designing cheek implants can create the style and size you seek. Then there is also the factor of your own cheek bone anatomy and how it may help or hurt the desired look…hence the benefits of a custom designed cheek implant style.
