Cheek Implants

Based in New York City

Cheek implants are anatomically shaped to mimic the natural cheekbone, and are made of silicone. They are inserted through a facelift incision, when that is appropriate, or via a lower eyelid incision. It is also possible to insert them through the mouth. The implants are anchored with sutures. A tape dressing may be applied.

Dr. Imber’s Tips!

We rarely insert cheek implants anymore. The procedure has been replaced by a Fat Transfer. While an implant remains an option and can produce an excellent look, Fat Transfer is my preferred method. It is easy to perform, has little to no down time, and achieves a more natural look with a less invasive, safer procedure.
Cheekbone augmentation with fat transfer not only gives that high youthful high cheekbone, angular look, it also fills in and tightens facial skin, reducing jowls and sagging.

Gerald Imber, MD

Whether the use of silicone implant or fat transfer, the procedure results in a more prominent lift and is the hallmark of beauty.

Your Cheek Implants will be performed in Dr. Imber‘s Surgery center located in NYC.

Recently, I have most often been enhancing the cheek area with fat transfers. I have found this relative non-invasive Cheek Implants procedure very successful, easy to perform, and long lasting.

He is very thorough, meticulous, detail oriented and you cannot negotiate services or anything with him. It’s his way or the highway. I had a lot of work done years ago long before plastic surgery was so common. My daughter went to him last year for lipo and he is exactly as thorough and precise as he was then. If you are a Botox junkie looking for quick fixes on the cheap, he probably won’t be right for you. His work is very subtle, understated, natural and undetectable.
