The bone structures are not pronounced in the face the cheek can be corrected surgically. Cheek models offer a powerful way to create expressive and distinctive facial features. To, usually the cheekbones with implants or fat are modeled so that they impact height literature. The implant is inserted through the upper jaw and fixed above the zygomatic arches.
