Firstly, your doctor will discuss your goals with you and he or she will explain what can be achieved realistically. The usual goal is to augment a lacking cheekbone structure. Although, some of you may want to rejuvenate your face, others may change the structure of your face dramatically for that cat walk model cheek bone look. Discuss with your surgeon the goals and general result you would like to achieve. It is all individual.
Your doctor will take into account your facial dimensions and natural face shape. There are many types of malar and submalar implants. The placement as well as the size of the cheek implants will be determined by you and your doctor. Don't be afraid to speak your mind during this time. Computer imaging is helpful in conveying your desires and expectations but should not be relied upon.
