What Is The Best Cheek Implants For Women Who Want A Model Cheek Look?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am aware of the custom cheek implants option and am actually looking to get those done. But before I get in to the questions I have a little disclaimer- the photos I’ve attached are merely for reference purpose. I know that these women have been photoshopped and what not and/or are genetically blessed with great cheekbones. I don’t look like them, nor do I intend do. Please don’t mistake the photos for me trying to get cheeks exactly like the celebrity. In your honest opinion, looking at the attached photos of the cheeks on these women- I’m talking about the placement on the face, the shape, the definition of the zygomatic tail etc. All of those factors put in, what cheek implants would give me a result closest to these photos. Malar implants? Or combined submalar implants?
A: For many women, combined malar-submalar shell cheek implants would work the best as an off-the-shelf style. These can be placed high on the cheek bone and come forward to cover the submalar area. Probably the implant would have to be modified a bit (the tail and posterior submalar areas narrowed) to make sure that the arch portion does not get too wide in a superior-inferior direction.
