I was very pleased with Dr. Picard-Ami and the cosmetic surgery he did on me five months ago. Dr. Picard-Ami was professional, very thorough from the first correspondence we had and extremely prompt in responding to any of my questions and concerns before and after surgery. My husband and I stayed at the Marriott which is located in the same complex as Dr. Picard-Ami’s office is. His staff took care of every detail from transporting me to the clinic where only plastic surgery is done (no worry of being with any Covid patients), kept my husband informed of everything during and after my surgery and checked on me daily. Walking to their offices after the surgery for follow up appointments was easy and convenient. Having any procedure during a pandemic is scary but at no time was I apprehensive about the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Picard-Ami and his staff if you are considering cosmetic surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and it was as painless as they promised.

What is Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation)?

Cheek implants (malar augmentation) are used to soften the angles of the face for a more youthful appearance. The methods employed with cheek implant procedures improve the harsh or gaunt appearance some individuals acquire due to age, malar deficiencies, asymmetries, or a natural bony structure.

 

Since we cannot avoid the force of gravity or the descent of soft tissue in our face, which is especially exacerbated with age, malar augmentation has become a sensible and rewarding solution. Cheek implants, or malar implants create well-proportioned, prominent cheek bones that make the skin on the face look supple and enhances facial symmetry.

 

A Good Candidate for Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation)

Anyone with malar deficiencies or asymmetries caused by trauma, congenital defects, inherited bony structure or age is a good candidate for cheek implant surgery. The minimum age requirement is 18 years of age for this procedure. Typically, individuals do not get rid of their baby fat until they are in their early twenties so the age requirement does not pose an issue.

 

The age factor should be taken into consideration, as it is sometimes better to go through with a cheek augmentation operation after the face has fully matured. Anyone having a face lift may also consider cheek implants for the most flattering results.

 

Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation) Procedure

The first step in the cheek implant procedure, as with any plastic surgery procedure, is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will guide you in your pre-operative planning. There are several sizes and shapes of cheek implants to choose from.

 

X-Rays are sometimes required to determine which cheek implant will be the most suitable for your bone structure, appearance, and desired goal. Measurements will also be taken to determine the degree of augmentation and the size and shape of the implant. These factors may differ for each individual.

 

Gender is also taken into consideration, as women usually desire softer, rounder cheeks enhancing their feminine appearance, while men typically desire more chiseled or angular cheek bones creating a more masculine appearance. During the cheek augmentation procedure, the patient will be under general anesthesia.

 

A small incision is made near the area where the implants will be placed, usually in the crease under the lower eyelashes or inside the upper lip. The surgeon creates a pocket to locate the implant, which is stitched to an area of more solid tissue to ensure immobility.

 

This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day.

 

Average Duration of Cheek Implant Surgery: Less than 1 hour
