High and full cheekbones are seen as a sign of beauty and femininity. They symbolize
youthfulness and healthiness.
Cheek augmentation with implants is a surgical procedure performed to enhance sunken or depressed cheekbones. It is generally done with the placement of an implant on the cheekbones to give more projection and definition to the cheeks.
Cheek implants are designed to augment, reconstruct, and rejuvenate your cheeks and facial contours. They have different sizes and styles, and they restore proportion and contour to your face.
Some people can be bothered that their cheeks are losing volume or starting to sag with age. If you feel your facial skin and fat descend due to aging, weight loss or gravity, and if you are concerned that your full and youthful cheeks appear sunken and hollow, you should consider cheek augmentation.

It is not hard to be eligible for a cheek augmentation procedure. If you are reading this, you
are probably a candidate!
You may be a good candidate:
The outcomes of cheek augmentation can be analyzed in two main categories: aesthetical and psychological.
Cheek implants present a permanent solution for sunken and hollow cheeks. They can be a very good way to add definition to your cheeks, facial contours and to enhance your overall appearance. Through cheek implants, the appearance of your weak cheeks can be improved, and you have fuller, defined, sculpted and youthful cheekbones. The appearance of your facial structure is strengthened. Cheek implants help patients to achieve dramatic results and obtain an ideal facial profile by providing a more facial symmetry. Above all, your results will be permanent.
The psychological outcomes of the procedure are as important as the physical ones. For most people, sunken and undefined cheeks make them feel very self-conscious because hollow and depressed cheekbones can overshadow your other facial features which negatively impact your profile and overall appearance. Cheek feature creates facial definition and plays an important role in the balance of the face. If you are not happy with the appearance of your cheeks, you can experience serious psychological distress which can negatively affect your self-confidence and social life. After the procedure, you will have a more positive self-image.
