Let’s face it, none of us want to get old. Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do to stop the clock. However, there are a few steps that we can take to slow down the effects that aging has on our face.
As we age, our face starts to lose fat. It starts to develop a sunken look, especially around our cheeks. Cheek augmentation is a procedure that will allow you to restore some of the lost volume to your face, increase the definition of your face, and give you back the youthful contours you had when you were younger.
Cheek augmentation can take many forms. One form is fat grafting and fat transfers. This is a procedure that uses liposuction to remove fat from other parts of your body, such as your hips or your buttocks, and then use that fat to give you fuller, plumper cheeks.
While fat transfer has provided long-term results with little complications, there is a downside. With this form of cheek augmentation, liposuction may need to be performed before the fat can be transferred to your face.
Cheek implants, which we, at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center, offer as a more permanent option to augment your face. Most implants are made from silicone and are perfect for people who want to add a substantial amount of volume to their face as opposed to only slightly increasing their facial volume. Silicone implants give the face fullness and have an overall lifting effect.
Another option is using fillers and injectables. These also give the face definition. A practitioner may inject the fillers along the cheekbone. There are a lot of different products that are available to achieve this effect, and it’s going to be best to speak to a surgeon to find out which one is right for you. They don’t all produce the same effect and not all of them last for the same amount of time.
Cheek augmentation procedures are ideal for individuals who have cheeks that are flat or that look deflated. If you feel that your cheeks lack definition or that your cheeks have become hollow, then this procedure may work for you.
This procedure is also beneficial for people who have under eye bags or under eye lines that produce wrinkles on their cheeks.
