Cheek Surgery Tips and Guide
The face is one of the first areas to show age as one gets older.Â One of the most conspicuous problems tends to be that the cheeks have lost their youthful plumpness.Â This creates a loss of facial definition which makes one look older.Â The fat pads along the cheek bones can flatten out, drop to a lower position, or disappear altogether.Â This may cause the face to look somewhat sunken.Â Cheek surgery is an aesthetic cosmetic procedure that can help restore the youthful appearance that plump cheeks provide.
Cheek surgery, or augmentation, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons in America today. Through cheek surgery, the face can be re-contoured as the cheeks are filled out.Â Injectable fillers areÂ a very popular method of minimally invasive cosmeticÂ surgery that is usedÂ to improve cheeks.Â Fat injections using fat from other areas of the patient's body are an excellent way to plump up the cheeks.Â Other fillers besides fat are also available.Â There are Hyaluronics such as Sculptra and Radiesse that are injected the same way that fat is.Â
Consulting with your board certified plastic surgeon is the best way to determine which procedure and which filler is the best for you if you are considering cheek surgery.Â He will want to know your health history in order to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.Â This will also help him avoid certain complications that may occur due to specific health problems.Â Cheek surgery is a relatively short procedure providing excellent results.
