Cheek implants are anatomic and come in many sizes and shapes. Submalar implants are used to fill the anterior submalar void, malar shells are used to augment the lateral malar region, and the combined submalar implant (Implantech, Inc., Ventura, CA) is a versatile implant that augments both the anterior and lateral cheek regions (Figure 88.1).
