Well : Well its hard to give advice on this without seeing the problem but i can tellyou that what you are describing is not fixed by fillers or implants... In fact, implants and fillers will make your cheeks appear more full which sounds like exactly what you dont want... There are procedures that help define and sculpt the cheeks.. None of them are risk free and all should be discussed with your facial plastic surgeon at length... Hope this helps -bwc.

Implants : Implants or cheek injections can be used to improve balance in the midface but a cheek lift is more appropriate to increase cheek definition and projection in some individuals. An experienced surgeon will discuss the multiple alternatives after an examining you during consultation.
