Three Types of Cheek Implants
Cheek implants and fillers offer different solutions for different age groups seeking to enhance their cheekbones. Cheek implants are a recommended permanent solution for younger patients looking to improve their facial bone structure.
Meanwhile, fillers are ideal for older patients who want to reverse the signs of aging around the midface area, particularly volume depletion that causes visibly sunken cheeks. Regardless of age, both options present viable solutions for individuals seeking to achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Three types of cheek implants include:
- Malar implants – Placed directly above where the cheekbones sit to create a sharper, more angular shape.
- Submalar implants – Placed just below where the cheekbones begin to assist with volume depletion.
- Combination – Includes both submalar and malar implants for those who have lost volume in their cheeks and want more defined cheekbones.

Are you looking to enhance your chin and add more definition to your lower face and jawline? A chin implant might be the solution for you. Not only can it be used for cosmetic purposes, but it can also be used for facial reconstruction. During the procedure, a skilled plastic surgeon makes a small, well-hidden incision under the chin, inserts the implant, and expertly molds it to your chin bone for a natural and balanced look. Chin implant surgery is also known as chin augmentation or enhancement, but no matter what it's called, it can give you the confidence boost and facial balance you've been looking for.
Chin implants are typically made of silicone, a flexible and artificial material. Occasionally, bone can be used, but it is not as widely used. Implants are available in various shapes, sizes, and styles, and the most suitable type will be chosen by your surgeon based on your individual requirements and aesthetic objectives.
Facial implants are generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects. Patients may experience some mild discomfort and bruising, and swelling around the implant area may take several weeks to subside. Although the full impact of the surgery may take a few months, subtle changes will be noticeable shortly after the procedure. Patients should expect to resume work and social activities within one to two weeks following surgery.
During your surgical consultation, your surgeon will provide detailed instructions for aftercare, including how to care for the surgical site and which medications to take orally or apply topically. The surgeon will also advise you on how to modify your exercise and daily routine during recovery. With proper care and guidance from your surgeon, you can expect a successful outcome from your facial implant surgery.
