When there exist deficiencies in the volume of the cheek bones, solid implants can give increased prominence in this area resulting in a more balanced and youthful width to length ratio of the face. Under local anesthesia and sedation, small incisions are made inside the mouth and pockets are developed next to the bone in the desired areas. Implants of the adequate size and shape are inserted and absorbable stitches are used to close the incisions. The patient can return home the same day.
