Cheek implants are made in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing Los Angeles Cheek Implants specialist Dr. Hopp to customize your cheek implant to your individual facial characteristics.
Despite a skillful use of cosmetics, it is difficult to create contours where there are none. A permanent way to achieve high and pronounced cheekbones is through the use of cheek implants.
Cheek augmentation through, the use of cheek implants, can have dramatic results by adding contrasts to a long, narrow or overly round face. Through cheek augmentation with implants you can create the soft angles and contrasts that you desire.
Cheek implants are placed on top of the cheekbone through an incision made usually inside the mouth, thus keeping the incision scar hidden. During the cheek implants surgery procedure, a "pocket" is created into which the implant is inserted. This helps anchor the implant in place. During the recovery process, there may be some discomfort during talking and eating, but this dissipates with time.
