Cheekbone augmentation

Cheekbone implants


For patients with insufficiently balanced contour of the face, placement of implants in cheek-bones can be the final touch which guarantees the lacking harmony. Such implants can give a considerable improvement so that you can achieve the profile you have always wanted. This is not always an independent intervention. It can be combined with face lifting, for example, and by placement of such an implant the lacking volume can be restored in the area of cheeks and the youth look can be regained.

The Procedure
