Aging : Aging brings with it a multitude of changes many of which relate to the skin surface or the volume of tissue holding the skin firm in youth. Depending on which area is more bothersome to you, treatment can be tailored to meet your expectation and desires. Generally speaking, a cheek implant will work regardless of the age of the bony structure. It is placed underneath the deep tissues to rejuvenate and recontour the cheeks to give them a tighter appearance. The cheekbones-anatomically referred to as the zygomatic bones - are augmented by implanting the patient's own fat, harvested from the abdomen or hips. So-called malar implants made of plastic/silicone can be inserted primarily via an approach through the hair-bearing temples or through the mouth via an incision in the gum. I would sit down with your facial plastic surgeon and discuss your options, sometimes it is best to consider combining the treatment of your cheeks with treatment of the skin if that is relevant.
