The proportions of the middle third of the face or the cheek area, influences the appearance of an individual more that the upper and lower third. The cheek can be divided into an upper and lower half; the lower half meaning the part of the cheek that is below the nostrils and next to the lips. It is the upper cheek that includes the cheek bones and the under-eye region and this is vital to the appearance of the face as a younger face appears triangular and becomes rectangular as one ages as the prominence of the cheek bones and cheek area reduces with age.
Cheek projection is extremely important in feminisation of the face and in fact cheek augmentation is one of the integral parts of a feminization procedure for a male to female transition. Cheek Enhancement might be achieved surgically by Silicone, Medpor or Gortex implants placed over the cheek bones or with the use of Dermal Filler injections that are done in the clinic under topical anaesthesia.
