To add a sense of balance to a face that has lost volume in various areas, we offer facial implants. Cheek implants are used to give patients stronger cheekbones or to augment cheeks that are shallow and are lacking in volume.
The incisions for cheek augmentation are created within the mouth. After anesthesia has been administered, each check enhancement incision is carefully made above the upper gum line, inside the upper lip. It is through these incisions that the cheek implants are inserted, adding shape and volume to the area.
You can find out more information regarding cheek implants during a visit to Dr. Thomas Kaniff, who is board-certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. To arrange an informative consultation, contact our office.
