Every Implant Is Different

Much like breast implants, when it comes to cheek implants there isn’t a one-size-fits-all. During your initial and follow-up consultation with Dr. Sultan, you will go over what results you would like to see in order to pick the best size and shape of implant for your face. And depending on the symmetry of your face, you may get different sizes of implants on each cheek.

There Are Two Types of Implants

There are two types of cheek implants including silicone and hydroxyapatite implants. The great thing about silicone implants is that they can be removed later on if you want to switch them out. However, if you want something that is permanent, then hydroxyapatite implants are going to be your solution. By melding with your existing cheekbone, these types of implants usually can’t be removed later on.

They Can Be Subtle

When you think of implants, you likely think of someone who looks like they have had a lot of cosmetic work one. However, cheek implants can be just as subtle as any procedure. In fact, a lot of our patients simply want a slight amount of contour on their cheeks— which usually means your friends and family won’t even be able to tell.

Getting cheek implants from Dr. Leslie H. Sultan is an effective way to enhance your natural beauty. If you would like to learn more about this procedure or to schedule your consultation, contact Dr. Leslie H. Sultan’s office today!
