Cheek Bone Augmentation by Implant
Generally, the anterior malar area is from the eyes to the lip on the lateral nose basis. The face appears long and flat if the malar area is too flat. In this situation, fat grafting is mainly performed; however, an implant is another good alternative if there is a low probability of engraftment or if a prominent augmentation is needed.The results are a natural looking facial contour.
Anterior malar surgery can be performed below the eyes or through the mouth. Most patients prefer the incision inside the mouth due to inconspicuous scars and convenience of surgery. The anterior malar is peeled back through the incision in the mouth and a trimmed implant is set in. The incision is sutured with thread.
