The cheekbones play a major role in defining the shape and overall look of our face. Fullness in the cheeks is often viewed as a youthful and desired characteristic that older people long for, one they may have taken for granted in their younger years. As we age, the cheek structure loses volume and becomes gaunt. To correct this, double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Lee Ann Klausner offers cheek implants.

Cheek implants come in two basic varieties: malar and submalar. Patients may also opt for a combination of the two. Malar implants are the most commonly used. They are inserted directly on the cheekbones to give them more prominence. Submalar implants are placed below the cheekbones with the goal of providing more fullness to the mid-face.
