Do you want to firm your jawline or increase the volume in your cheeks? While plastic surgery is an option, it’s not the only one. If you are troubled by the effects hormones, stress, gravity, and aging can have on your face, dermal fillers may be the answer. In our Huntington Beach office, we routinely use various dermal fillers to restore beautiful facial accents. One of the quickest ways to reclaim youthful facial contours is to augment and define the cheekbones. Expertly-applied, dermal fillers are an outstanding option for cheek augmentation.
Benefits of Cheek Augmentation
Whether you have naturally flat cheeks or the curves across your mid-face have flattened over time, you can benefit from dermal fillers. The treatments are created specifically to correct the loss of mid-face volume. Dermal fillers are a safer alternative to cheek implants, and it’s mot the only benefit.
While you may temporarily experience some bruising and swelling, it’s easily covered with a light application of makeup. You also do not need to take time off from work. There’s zero downtime involved with the injectable fillers. Dermal filler injections provide localized volume increase that defines the cheeks without the risk of displacement and with a much lower risk of infection than cheek implants.
What’s Involved with a Cheek Augmentation Procedure?
At Orange County Cosmetic Surgery we offer our clients a variety of injectable fillers that will enhance your cheeks. We use JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® fillers, Sculptra®, or your own fat cells. During your initial consultation, we will create a treatment plan that best addresses your aesthetic goals.
JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are families of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, a substance naturally occurring in your body. As a dermal filler, hyaluronic acid is inserted into a target location, such as the cheeks, to invite water molecules to fill the area. Sculptra® is a collagen stimulator that works to firm the targeted area. The same applies to using your body’s harvested fat cells.
