Will Custom Infraorbital-Malar Implants Fix My Deficient Undereye and Anterior Cheek Area?

Q: Dr. Eppley ,I am a 31 year old female and have had one fat transfer to the undereye,cheeks & lips in 2022 & one round of undereye filler in 2020. My main concern is the area under my eye to the top of my cheek. Hereditarily  I have a very long face with little to no protruding bone structure.  My goal is to bring more harmony & balance to the undereye & cheek area so that it is not separated. 

A:Based on your description and location of prior fat injections and fillers (smiling pictures camouflage the true state of your cheek shape) my assumption is that you are seeking a permanent implant-based augmentation of the undereye (nfraorbital) and anterior cheek (malar) facial areas….which can certainly be done. Ideally this is best accomplished by a custom infraorbital-malar implant design placed through lower eyelid incisions. This is done using a 3D CT face scan which can be obtained in your local area.
