With the advent of fat grafting, it seems as though the use of facial implants for facial reshaping are taking a backseat. However, this is a mistake – in the patient who has angular features but weak cheekbones and eyes that appear slightly protrusive, malar implants can do wonders to change the appearance. Patients who’ve undergone LeFort 1 maxillary advancement surgery to bring forward their upper jaw can also benefit from small malar implants when a large advancement has made a disharmony between their lower cheek and their lower eyelid and malar region. If you are interested in implant-based facial reshaping, this is something that you and Dr. Hatef will consider in what is typically a multi-modality approach to making your face stronger.
