Our faces tend to be the first thing that is noticed by others when they look at us. This is especially true when making first impressions and meeting new people. The effects of aging can potentially have detrimental impacts on our self-confidence and self-image. Thankfully, there are many treatment options available to help address or reverse the effects of aging.
Areas on our face that tend to show the effects of aging more than others are our cheeks and the area above our jawline. Over time, our cheeks often flatten while the area below the jawline looks sunken and dull. Thankfully, cheek augmentation is a safe and effective way to bring back the toned and defined look of flattened and dull-looking cheeks.
Some of the most popular treatment options involve using dermal fillers and injectables to address these effects. Some fillers, such as hyaluronic acids and collagen, work by adding volume from the inside. Other injectables, such as Dysport®, keep the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines from contracting and making these appear deeper and more permanent.
Another commonly used procedure is the use of your fat cells, harvested from other troublesome areas on your body, and implanting them in key areas on your face. Not only is volume added from the inside, but there is also much less risk of rejection as the fat cells come from your own body.
These are all minimally invasive, are proven safe, and have very high success rates. With their ease of use and safety, doctors often use a specific combination to achieve the patient's aesthetic goals.
Although each can offer great results, each has a specific purpose and address many effects of aging. It takes the experience and skilled eye of an expert cosmetic surgeon to know how to combine the various treatment options to create the plan that best meets your goals.
