Cheek Implants

Cheek implants are a procedure surgeons prefer to increase cheek volume, change its shape, highlight the cheek, and enlarge the cheek and chin. In the past, surgeons used cheek implants to reconstruct the face after congenital disabilities or damage. However, today, prominent cheeks have become one of the beauty criteria in the world. Recently, cheek implants in Turkey have become an effective way to define cheeks, combat facial aging and rejuvenate the face.  

People with dimples under the eyes, wrinkles around the nose and lips, lip sagging, and facial wrinkles can regain their facial beauty with this method. Benefits of this procedure include facial symmetry, simultaneous operation with other cosmetic procedures such as face and forehead lifts, and low post-operative risks.
