What is the best filler for cheek bone definition for a male?
The most predictable and potentially reversible cheek filler is a Silastic cheek implant. Whether it be for a male or female patient makes little difference in my opinion. All the popular injectable fillers work based on the principle of simulating or replacing the fatty layer of the cheek. Injectable fat is probably the best of these modalities. If the problem is really a skeletal one, a solid implant such as those made of silicone rubber work best in my opinion. Having over 25 years of experience and many long term excellent results with this modality, I feel strongly that these newer concepts of filling everything in the face with injectables is being greatly oversold to the public.
