Cheek Implants

Malarplasty | Cheek Implants near Jackson, MS

Our double board certified facial plastic surgeons, Dr. J. Randall Jordan and Dr. J. George Smith, perform Malarplasty procedures for the residents of Jackson and surrounding communities in Mississippi.

High, prominent cheekbones are a well recognized symbol of beauty in our society.  Conversely, one of the features of facial aging is the drift of the cheek mound in a downward direction and a sagging hollowness of the cheeks.

As previously mentioned, differences in the size of the cheekbones, or asymmetry, may be a congenital or traumatic deformity.  All of these situations can potentially be improved by cheek implants. During consultation these areas will be assessed in relation to the overall facial architecture.

Malarplasty Procedure

This procedure is often performed in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift surgery in order to achieve an improved overall result.  The anesthesia can be either general or “Twilight Sleep”, but in any case, the patient may return home after the surgery, and will be seen the next morning in the office.  The incisions are made inside the mouth, just under the upper lip.  A medical grade implant of the proper size and shape for the individual is inserted and positioned.  The entire operation takes approximately 30 minutes.

Malarplasty Recovery

There is almost no discomfort, mild to moderate swelling for the first several days and patients can usually return to work in one week. 

What Kind of Implant is Used?

A medical grade synthetic polymer such as silastic or Medpore® is currently used. This material has a long and excellent safety record.

Possible Malarplasty

Rejection of the implant is rare, as is infection. Displacement of the implant by a blow to the cheek area is possible for several weeks and must be avoided.
