Cheekbone Implants / Malar Augmentation
High Lightening the Cheeks
Another common way of contouring facial framework to achieve greater beauty is through cheek augmentation. Traditionally, strong cheekbones have been considered signs of beauty because they add to the definition of the face and help improve facial harmony.
