Cheek Sculpting & Shaping (Also referred as Cheek Enhancement/Augmentation, Cheek Reshaping, and Cheek Correction)
Cheeks are the major defining area of the face. Full cheeks evoke an appearance of youth and vitality, while sunken or flat cheeks may make you appear tired or aged. A youthful and attractive face is usually very full the cheeks project sufficiently and exhibit a soft, smooth and lively appearance. As we age, our cheeks lose volume & become hollow. Many women as well as men prefer to have an attractive face contour with high cheekbones as an impact of change in traditional rounded look of facial profile. That’s when cheek augmentation rushes to help and satisfy the most sophisticated needs.
There are variety of surgeries to enhance the appearance of your cheek:
Fat injection/ Dermal Fillers for Shrunken cheeks
For sunken cheeks or triangular faces that require fuller looks fillers either in the form of fat taken from your own body OR readily available dermal fillers can be used.
Both can be useful in reducing fine wrinkles around the mouth also.
Cheek Bone Prominence – Cheek Augmentation (Malar implants)
High cheek bones have traditionally been a sign of beauty. This procedure consists of placing a synthetic implant over the natural cheekbone. Facial implants are specially formed solid, biocompatible materials designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. The precise type and size of implants best suited for you require an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment. Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones.
Cheek Bone Shaving
Too prominent cheek bones or unequal cheek bone in cases of facial asymmetry requires shaving or trimming of cheek bone. Operation done under general anesthesia.
All the cheek sculpting related procedures are performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia and you can go home on the same day of your surgery.
