Cheek and chin procedures are applied to people to have plumper and more aesthetical facial lines. Hyaluronic acid fill is used for these procedures. With fill injection, a lifting effect is created. With this procedure, cheeks and cheekbones as well as facial lines become more prominent and the face looks better proportioned.
A strong cheek structure plays an important role in your face aesthetic appearance. High, full cheeks can provide balance and definition to your face and help you maintain youthful facial contours. Unfortunately, we lose fat and collagen in our cheek region as part of the aging process, resulting in a hollowed, gaunt, or tired appearance. Cheek aesthetics are an excellent way to help improve these signs of aging while adding definition and balance to your facial features.
Good Candidate For Cheek Aesthetics?
Men and women of all ages can benefit from cheek esthetics. The procedures can be performed to address a variety of aesthetic goals, including:
- Restoring cheeks to a high, full, and youthful looking position
- Restoring lost facial volume in the cheek region
- Improving overall balance of facial contours
- Correcting facial asymmetry
- Reducing the appearance of jowls
- Correcting flatness in the mid-facial region
- Improving the appearance of a thin, gaunt face
In addition, ideal cheek augmentation candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure.
Cheekbone Implants & How To Apply
Cheekbone implants have a proven record of safety and success in aesthetic enhancement. These implants have been in use for more than 15 years. Various materials, ranging from very rigid to pliable, are used to create cheekbone implants. These implants come in many shapes and sizes.
It is possible to customize most cheekbone implants to individual facial anatomy. Cheek implants, such as those comprising silicone, do not fuse with the tissue and can readily be extracted at a later date, if required.The surgeon will make an incision and create a pocket to hold the implant. The incisions are usually placed inside the mouth or through an opening just beneath the lower lash allowing the incision to blend with the lash line in an inconspicuous manner.
The incisions underneath the skin are closed using absorbable sutures while cuts on the skin’s surface are typically sealed with removable sutures. The implant type being used determines the positioning of the implant.
Dermal fillers to help patients enhance facial volume and contour the cheek area with minimally invasive facial filler treatments. Aging can cause volume loss throughout the face, which can create wrinkles and facial asymmetry. We usually witness first signs of facial volume loss around the cheek and eyelid area, which actually can result in secondary areas of aging, such as nasolabial folds and jowling. Enhancing the volume around the cheek can actually not only restore the volume lost but also improve other areas of aging including the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and neck jowling.
Fillers provide innovative techniques and technology to stay at the forefront of cheek esthetics treatments. For patients, dr continues to teach the latest safe and effective techniques to other physicians that travel to our clinics. Although they are very effective and long lasting, patients need to know that cheek filler injections are not a permanent solution and give patients the option to stop or continue treatment to maintain results.
Buccal Fat Removal “BICHECTOMY”
The cheekbones play a tremendous role in the overall aesthetic and appeal of the face. Your cheekbones help to define your face and act as the underlying framework for the skin and soft tissue that lies atop your basic bone architecture. Sometimes, the features of your cheekbones can get lost or disappear behind too much excess buccal (also known as the cheek) fat. In this instance, your features may require subtle refinement with the assistance of a buccal fat removal procedure. Facial contouring is important to the overall facial appearance. If one feels that his or her cheeks are looking too round for the other facial features, he or she may even start to feel heavy or chubby as a result of excess fat in the cheeks or buccal fat. While it is important to maintain a healthy amount of facial fat to retain a youthful appearance, excess buccal fat can lead to a rounded “moon face” or chipmunk-like cheek appearance that hides one’s naturally given cheekbone and jawline. A buccal fat removal procedure conservatively discards non-essential fat in the cheek area, slimming out this area and resulting in a thinner looking and more chiseled appearance.Buccal fat removal is performed on an out-patient basis which allows patients to recover in the comfort of their own home. Patients will begin the recovery phase by being closely monitored in the recovery suite of the surgical center immediately following surgery. As soon as patients are alert and feeling stable they can be driven home or to the recovery facility where they will likely want to sleep for the rest of the day.
