size recommendation for cheek implants?
i've heard it's always best to go with the smallest size to avoid looking plastic... is this true? has anyone had good results with the medium or larger sizes?

only go with small or medium or if u can afford it, get some custom made ones. there's a few doctors that do them.

The nice thing about cheek implants unlike every other facial proceduce is it's reversible! So thankfully if you get too large you can get the next size down. To answer your question yes I would say it's generally better to go smaller. Even though you can get them re-done, that will double your recovery time and OR/anesthesia costs.

3 mm or 4mm if you are an actor

:confused:Pardon??? :shocked:And if I`m not an actor/actress what size should I use? I`m talking about Sub-malar implants only.
Thank you!

I agree with versace

You should go for a medium size. If you have an experienced and good surgeon then he/she will cut it down according to your cheeks, and it will be perfect for your cheeks.
