Cheek implants are an effective method towards enhancing the shape, contour, and balance of a personâ€™s face; providing a new sense of symmetry. This can be done in a variety of ways, using synthetic materials like Alloderm, silicone, or Gore-tex. For a youthful, healthy-looking appearance, cheek implants may also be created through the use of fat injections. This procedure can improve a â€œsunkenâ€? or tired look.
