Malar augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of your facial symmetry by using implants or osteotomy. The skilled surgeons at Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery will make the bones around your cheek shorter, longer, or change them so that they alignment and function better.
Malar augmentation is made from a variety of materials. Typically the most common one is solid silicone. Malar implants are the most common shape of cheek implants and are placed directly on the cheekbone. The result is more projection in the cheekbone which provides more contour to the side of the face.
In order to properly augment the cheeks, our friendly and educated plastic surgeon will place a solid implant over the cheekbone. We will then inject your own fat or a soft tissue filler, such as Restylane, and create cuts in the zygomatic bone (cheekbone). Malar augmentation can be combined with other procedures such as a face lift or chin augmentation.
