Cheek (Malar) Implant
The skin over the face is analogous to a drape. The shape of the face is determined by the underlying skeletal framework. In some individuals, this framework is not as pronounced as in other individuals and they may appear to have a flattened face or small, recessed chin.
A cosmetic surgeon may be able to add facial implants to the facial skeleton to accentuate the areas of the cheek bone, chin, nose, and angle of the lower jaw. These skeletal augmentations re-drape and tighten the skin of the face. This provides a more healthy and youthful appearance without the need for a more extensive skeletal lift procedure. The surgery is performed from within the mouth with no visible scars. Immediate results are evident.

Wrinkle Fillers: Alternatives to Cheek Augmentation in Sacramento
Many cosmetic surgeons are now performing cheek augmentation with injectable wrinkle fillers. Products such as Sculptra, Radiesse and Restylane may be recommended for you instead of surgical cheek augmentation.
The wrinkle filler can be injected beneath the skin at a specific depth to restore volume within flat or sunken cheeks. To control discomfort during the injection, the doctor can administer a nerve block or topical anesthetic.
