Cheek Implants

Q: Dr. Eppley, Will cheek implants cause my eyes to look hollow and sunken in? If they are too big, this might happen. 

I would like to know if I need to wait for the cheek fillers I have in to dissolve. The small shape in my cheeks I do have is because its Voluma.  Do you need my face to look at its original shape or lack thereof?

I cant afford to stay overnight for more than a day or so as well for financial reasons. I have to probably get a hotel for the trip on my there and back as well. 

A: In answer to your cheek implants questions:

1) The placement and size of a combined malar-submalar implant determines how that night affect the eyes. Although hollowing of the eyes is not a typical or expected sequelae from their placement.

2) Whether any fillers in place need to be removed or not prior to Chee implants depends on how much filler is present and how long ago it was placed.

3) There would be no need to stay in town overbite unless you are by yourself and have to drive home.
