My under eye hollows are really dark and droopy and make me look tired all the time. I was wondering if cheek implants would be a good way to fix this? I've heard cheek implants are good for making cheekbones look better but I want to know if they're good for under eye hollows too. Thanks!

My cheek implants add dimension and lift to the upper portion of my face. Your surgeon can place implants strategically to lift and shape the eye bag area. Botox or dermal filler may also benefit that area. My plastic surgeon recommended a combination of treatments to achieve the best results. I had an eye lift and cheek implants. I'm thrilled with my results, and my surgeon did a fantastic job.

For any cosmetic surgery like this it's essential that you see a highly qualified and experienced facial plastic surgeon. Ask your surgeon to show you before and after photos of their previous patients. You should also look up your surgeon's patient reviews to find out about their bedside manner and craftsmanship. My plastic surgeon is very artistic and focuses on small details that produce significant results.

If you are thinking about cheek augmentation because you have hollows under your eyes, join the club. I noticed as I was getting closer to 50 that my face was losing its fullness. It made me look and feel old. I talked to my plastic surgeon about cheek implants to give my face more volume. He helped me to choose the right size implants and positioned them exactly where I needed them. I feel like I look younger again. If you don't want to go with a permanent solution like implants, consider doing something non-surgical like dermal fillers.

It's totally possible to use cheek implants to fill in under eye hollows. The cheek implant is specifically designed to prevent further volume loss of your cheeks. Therefore, if your cheeks are having more volume added to them, the “bags” under your eyes would definitely need to be moved upward so that your cheeks will look as if they have the youthful volume that you were wanting in the first place. Many plastic surgeons suggest cheek implants for filling in the under eye area.
