Cheekbone Contour

The appearance of high cheekbones is a very desirable look for both men and women. Just look at any male or female model and you’ll see the sculpted look of high cheekbones and a thin lower face. This is what society sees as attractive, or else they wouldn’t be making a living based on their appearance. I realize the majority of people don’t plan on becoming models, but don’t feel bad if you find this look attractive, because you’re not the only one.

Common Questions

Q: I'd like higher cheekbones, but I don't want to look fake like some people I've seen on TV. Does this have to happen?

A: No. Three factors will prevent the phony “stuck on” cheek you’re referring to:
1. Cheek implant size; Cheek implants come in different sizes and the proper size needs to be selected.
2. Proper placement; The implant needs to be placed in the proper location. This placement should be on the most prominent aspect of the cheekbone, which is usually located below the outer corner of the eye.
3. Proper patient selection; Most people would like higher cheekbones, but not everyone should have cheek implants. The whole face needs to be considered. For example, if you’re lacking facial definition because of fat in the face, then excess fat is the problem that should be primarily treated. Taking all the above factors into consideration, someone getting cheek implants should have higher cheekbones with a natural contour.

Q: Is it true you don't have to have a scar to get cheek implants?

A: A small incision needs to be made, however, I prefer to place it inside the mouth so there are no visible scars.

Q: I have very flat cheekbones. My face is completely flat from below my eyes and down my face. I think this gives me a sad appearance. Is this possible?

A: Yes. Although many people may describe it differently, having flat cheekbones can give a long, drawn look to the face that many describe as looking sad. When we smile, we see more prominence in the cheekbone region, so a natural fullness here can easily be associated with a happier look.

Q: My friend has pretty cheekbones and my face is flat. Can filler be used to make me look like I have cheekbones?

A: Yes, filler can create the beautiful curves of pretty cheekbones, and it can also give the appearance of lifting the entire face. Voluma® XC is a great filler that adds volume and sculpts the cheekbone. Everyone looks better with well defined facial contours.

Q: How much time would I need to take off work to get cheek implants? (I don't want anyone to know I'm doing it.)

A: Most patients would take off about 1 week. With proper placement and size, you will look completely natural, so no one will know.

Q:I am in my late 20's but look very tired. I thought it was because of my eyes, but how could I need my eyelids done when I am so young?

A: You probably do not need your eyelids done. I have several patients who describe exactly what you are saying. It can be due to the bone structure in your cheeks. If you inherited a flat bone structure under your eyes, the bone does not curve outward to give you a noticeable cheekbone. There are no “apples” to your cheeks. The “apples” of the cheeks are the areas of the cheeks directly below your lower eyelids. When this area is flat it gives a very tired look to your eyes. It can actually create an illusion that your eyes and face and being pulled downward and can even make you look sad. The “apples” of the cheeks can be missing or flat because of genetics and/or aging. This is an area that shrinks and flattens with age resulting in a negative change in your appearance. Luckily it is very easy to sculpt the cheek area with fillers, specifically designed for the cheek area only. With these cheek fillers I can sculpt beautiful cheekbones and create “apples” to the cheeks. Most of the cheek fillers are lasting 2 years! it’s incredible!

Q: If I chose to have filler added to my cheek area, how long would I have to wait to see results?

A: Voluma ® XC adds immediate results, with no downtime after it is injected.
