cheekbonesThere have been a number of studies showing that people do not perceive your face as a number of separate elements, but, rather, as a unity, taken in as a whole. However, to achieve the appropriate whole, every element has a role to play. Prominent cheekbones are a hallmark of beauty in our culture. Men and women with strong, high cheekbones convey a healthy, youthful look. When your cheekbones are flat, this can cause a tired or aged appearance. As we age each, not only does our facial skin progressively lose its elasticity and start to sag but changes in the deeper layers also contribute to the signs of ageing. The bone and soft tissues degenerate, especially in the mid-face and this leads to loss of the prominence of the cheeks and flattening of the facial features. Specifically, the descent of the cheek fat pad results in a decrease of the facial fullness. Factors that can contribute to facial aging include diminished tissue elasticity, gravity, stress, and sun exposure. This can be worsened by weight loss, and many women achieve the figure they want only at the cost of a face with gaunt or sunken cheeks. Cheek augmentation can help you overcome this to have both an attractive body and face. Sometimes, the problem is not a loss of volume, but the displacement of fat and other tissues in the face, in which case a facelift may give you better results.

If you are looking to achieve an attractive appearance or restore your youthful look, it is important not to neglect your cheeks in considering the balance of your face. Cheek augmentation can help you achieve the proper proportions to get the look you desire. Cheek augmentation is a very popular procedure that can help balance and harmonize your facial features by giving you fuller cheeks, lift your face, improve facial symmetry, and restore a youthful appearance.For a long time, the only treatment to bring youthful fullness back to aging cheeks was surgery. Cheek implants were used to change the shape and prominence of your cheekbones.

They were inserted through incisions made inside the mouth and attached to the cheekbones. It is still done, of course. But there are several disadvantages to surgery, including the invasiveness of the procedure, infection, the potential displacement of implants, and the loss of sensation to the area. Therefore, for many patients who are seeking an effective procedure to enhance their cheek region but who also want to avoid the potential problems of surgery, a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure is preferable.

Dermal fillers in particular have become increasingly popular among both patients and clinicians because they can be used to restore volume and rejuvenate facial appearance with minimal discomfort to the patient. The new injection technique is very comfortable – the fillers are slowly injected into the targeted areas above and / or lateral to your cheek to gradually build a new structure for your cheeks. The results are more natural, require little down-time, and have a low incidence of side-effects. You’ll experience some mild redness, swelling, and perhaps some bruising. These side effects should disappear within several days. In the meantime any bruising can be covered with make-up.

Most people are able to return to work and daily activities immediately after the procedure. You’ll notice that not only are your cheeks plumper, but the wrinkles on and around them are diminished as well. The product produces long-lasting correction but is not permanent. Correction in the order of 1-2 years is not unusual. To maintain the new look, however, you’ll need maintenance treatments, although most people require less filler with each treatment as the skin responds and creates its own new collagen.
