Cheek enlargement involves the placement of a prosthetic material in front of the cheekbones to create a fuller and raised cheek image. In cheek enlargement, the incision is almost between the cheeks and the gums in the mouth. These tracks are never seen. Other options for incisions are the inside of your lower eyelids or in the front of your ears. These incisions are generally considered concomitant with eyelid surgery or facelift.
Cheek implants are made compatible with your target. If you are more interested in the flatness in the anterior part of your cheeks, the implants are placed in the front to protrude. If you are complaining about the very narrow face, the cheek implants can be placed more vertically so that it protrudes beyond the edge of the cheekbone. Most of the time, their mix gives the best result.
Cheek Enlargement Without Implant
Contrary to the jaw bone that can be carried forward to grow and move forward, the cheekbones are not suitable for such an application for purely cosmetic purposes. If you are determined to use your own bone to enlarge the cheek, it can be used as a one-piece transplant from your skull, rib or hip bone. The disadvantages of bone transplants are that they should be taken from different areas and they are soluble after insertion. It is also more difficult to make new formation. Most surgeons only use implant agents for cosmetic cheek enlargement.
There is an exception to this rule. If you also have a facelift, your surgeon can use extra facial tissue, known as SMAS, to enlarge your cheeks. SMAS is a fibrous tissue layer found under the skin. Two-layer facelifts are lifted up and the excess is usually discarded. Some surgeons use it to create fullness in the cheek area, rather than throwing this extra SMAS. Nevertheless, SMAS may develop over time or may sag over time as it is a soft tissue.
In the last years, there have been great advances in fat transfer from other parts of the body. Successful enlargement of the face area with fat transfer is performed. The melting in the centrifugal region is very limited in the fat transfer because the blood supply to the facial region is quite good. If you do not have an implant, ask your doctor for the fat transfer.
