What Thickness Cheek Implant Do I Need To Get The Hollow Cheek Look?

Q:Dr. Eppley, I would like to know what procedures/implants are required to achieved hollow cheek like those male models. I know body fat plays a big role but besides that if any implant is needed about how much mm is needed?

A: You are correct in that one needs to have very little facial fat to achieve that hollow cheek look. But when it comes to midface implants achieving that look it is far more about the implant’s shape and surface area coverage than it is about millimeter’s of implant thickness.
