Can you see the ridges of cheek implants?
 
Is it true that you can see the outline or edges of cheek implants on skinny faces? My face is thin and if I go through with the surgery it needs to be natural. Should I worry about the cheek implants showing through the skin if I go that route?

Results are individual dependent. Docs often go too big, which can be a nightamre for someone with a thin face and/or not a great deal of skin.

It's possible. All depends on the person.

It is possible for the outline of a cheek implant to show through on a thin face, however with the different types of implants available, it is possible to place the implants in a way which minimizes this possibility. It may even be better for you to have temporary fillers such as Radiesse to "try on" the look before committing to the surgery.

Bad advice. Radiesse is not a temporary filler. It leaves behind chunky, hard calcium deposits after. I had some 5 years ago and it's still there. Using Radiesse in the cheeks is horrible advice. Hyaluronic acid is a much better way to go. It's temporary and feels more realistic than Radiesse.

I agree with Mr. Z. I have seen horrible long term results with Radiesse.

Dr. Prasad, do you regularly use Radiesse on the cheeks?

Excellent question, la_angel! ;)
