Cheek Augmentation New York City and New Jersey
Beauty may only be skin deep. But, for centuries, well-defined facial features have been considered traits of physical beauty. Prominent cheekbones provide balance and definition. Possessing these features can even enhance your self-confidence. For those lacking these natural marks of distinction, make-up was their only alternative.
Now, thanks to modern technology, there is a safe, permanent method to correct a receding midface and provide those high cheekbones sought after by men and women worldwide. Cheek implants (malar augmentation) give New Jersey and New York City residents a more vibrant and attractive look of distinction. These procedures can also benefit those with asymmetries or congenital defects.
In patients 38-50 years old, cheek implants can improve the midfacial contour and restore sagging midfacial soft tissues, thus postponing the need for a Face Lift. For New Jersey and New York City patients receiving a Face Lift, cheek implants can ensure longer-lasting results.
Are cheek implants safe?
Facial implants have proven to provide a safe, predictable, low-cost, low-risk cosmetic surgical procedure. To date, millions of facial implants made from non-toxic materials such as silicone and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) have been implanted, with no reported cases of allergic reaction. The implants, designed specifically for use in the midface / cheek area come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. These implants can be custom-trimmed by your surgeon for a more natural fit. Dr. John Mesa, a Board Certified Cosmetic Latin Plastic Surgeon always uses Medpore implants for cheek and chin augmentation due to their reliability and plasticity to adapt to the patients baseline anatomy.

One of the most common complaints is minimal improvement, asymmetries, “operated look” etc.
