Hello, Doctor I am always surprised at how many people get cheek implants that look absolutely awful. Wonder why they don't go for fillers or fat grafting... Anyway, 90% of the time they don't even look not too well, they look odd!
I would never ever ever get those (prefer fat grafting one day, thankyouverymuch) but wonder why on earth do they turn out so so so bad? Is it the shape of them? Is it how they are put? Is it where in the cheeks they are put that they look like that?
What is what makes them look so odd?
When I see pics I get the impression that they are put too high and horizontal in the cheeks. Is it that the reason? (of course I am not taking into consideration other issues such as complications from the procedures, their rejection by the body, etc.)
the answer to doctors' techniques and why they do them is a fifty page dissertation. in short, i think a lot of them are scared to learn new techniques. also a lot of them do not have the eye to see what is beautiful. that is the truth.
if you really want to understand in detail why cheek implants suck, please watch my video cheeks: the good, the bad, and the ugly. that is in my video log section.
i answer the same questions so often that i decided to make about 300 videos. now, i just send you there and you get detailed answers on almost everything. if not, i have probably covered the answer somewhere else in this forum! best, sml
