In some cultures, the position and plumpness of the cheekbones is associated with leadership qualities; prominent yet balanced cheeks are considered to be indicators of boldness, confidence, and ambition. In many western cultures, high and well-defined cheeks are also coveted, but these characteristics can elude many patients. Also, age-related changes can cause formerly prominent apples of the cheeks to “fall,” leading to a sunken, tired, and overall aged appearance. These patients may seek out plastic surgeons like Dr. Kwan to boost, enlarge, or otherwise augment cheekbones. This augmentation can be done with implants or soft tissue dermal fillers. Yet, every … Continue reading

Many of the contemporary fashion models have higher cheekbones, and some of them even seek to get cheek implants to further increase the height of their cheeks.

Resulting from such a cheekbone is facial disproportion which will in turn result in a patient’s face … Continue reading

How do you perform cheekbone reduction?

Cheekbone Reduction New York

Since the cheekbone is not very thick, its thickness doesn’t present any problems to a plastic surgeon. However, the issue lies in the exact amount of protuberance of the cheekbone and how it affects the patient’s appearance. Cheekbone surgery is performed differently by different surgeons.

Proponent surgeons of the latter version recognize the fact that the cheekbone is comparatively thin compared to the rest of the bones in the skull. Many surgeons compare this version … Continue reading
