What is cheek surgery? A "normal facial appearance" comes from the balance between all elements of the face, including nose, cheeks, cheekbones and chin. When any of these elements are unbalanced by being larger or smaller, flatter or rounder, this can look unusual, or even "abnormal". For some people, having an unbalanced facial appearance can have a detrimental and some times devastating effect on their quality of life. Cheek reshaping can help harmonise the balance of the face, giving a more natural and "normal" facial appearance.
Who would be suitable for cheek surgery? Some facial features do not stop growing until the age of 16, so surgery before this age is unwise. Patients should be physically fit, healthy and well, to minimise risks of having surgery.
