Cheek augmentation surgery uses cheek implants to enhanced facial cheek contours. Cheek implants help create greater facial balance and improved symmetry of the face. Therefore, Dr. Katz uses cheek implants to bring fullness to the face, thereby, giving you that beautiful sought after look you desire. Whether you are trying to add fullness or counteract aging cheek implants can address your concerns.
Dr. Katz uses one of two cheek implant placement techniques to produce the ideal end result. Malar cheek implants are placed on top of the cheekbones to create a higher, more defined cheekbone. Or, to restore cheek fullness, a submalar cheek implant is used. As we age, some individuals develop a hollowness beneath their cheekbones. Submalar implants are placed on the underside of the cheekbone in order to fill the hollow space, thereby creating a more youthful appearance. During surgery, cheek implants are inserted through small incisions inside the mouth, above the upper gum.
Many different sizes and shapes of implants can be used for surgery, depending on facial shape. Patients trust Dr. Katz, a plastic surgeon with more than 30 years of experience in practice to help you achieve the optimal look. Dr. Katz has an excellent reputation within the medical community for providing the highest quality of surgical care. For your comfort and convenience, he operates in an on-site, accredited surgical facility. Surgery takes about an hour and is performed under IV sedation and local anesthesia with minimal recovery time and lasting results.
Fat Grafts can also be performed to enhance the malar or submalar area.
