How Can I Get The High Cheekbone Look?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I live in Sweden and I’m interested in cheek augmentation for the high cheek bone look. The thing is I’ve done an operation with cheek augmentation here in Sweden (intra-oral) but I didn’t get the high cheek bone result. 

Is it possible doing this operation , going through the lower eyelid as shown?

A: There is no standard form of cheek implant that can achieve the high cheekbone look…which is largely a horizontal augmentation along the zygomatic body and arch. Whether that would also include the more anterior infraorbital rim is determined on an individual case basis. Most of the time the preferred method of accurate implant placement/positioning is through the lower eyelid.
