The benefit of a cheek implant over fillers is that it is permanent with less down time compared to a traditional facelift. Implants can also be used for conditions that lead to facial wasting. More importantly, in those patients with trauma to the face affecting only one side, permanent implants are an excellent option. For those patients with congenital bony deficiencies, this traditionally is the most effective option to create a youthful appearance. All of these methods can be discussed with Dr. Guy at the time of consultation.
