Having prominent cheekbones and full cheeks allows both men and women to look younger and more attractive. Whether through the process of aging or genetic factors, some people have cheeks and cheekbones that are less than desirable to them. In this case, a simple cosmetic procedure may be a great option. This process provides the face with a greater contour. That means it changes the proportions of the face to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
It is normal for people to lose fullness in the face as they get older. This is the most common reason that people seek a cheek enhancement procedure. Patients enjoy more cheek fullness and facial contouring after undergoing this procedure.
The cheek augmentation process
It all starts with a consultation, during which we’ll evaluate your situation and determine which type of cosmetic procedure is right for you. For example, dermal fillers or a mid face lift may be your best bet. After getting medical clearance to go ahead with the procedure, it is important for patients to make sure they get enough rest, follow a healthy diet, and refrain from smoking. The surgeon will also advise patients to follow certain dietary restrictions depending on what type of procedure they are having done.
Patients can choose to have a cheek enhancement as a single outpatient procedure or as one of several types of cosmetic procedures performed at the same time. For example, utilizing dermal fillers and other techniques can help to provide optimal results.
Because of its short duration and relative ease in completing, the recovery time for these types of procedures is typically minimal to nonexistent. No visible scarring is present, and the end result is a fuller face that looks younger and plumper overall.
