Bring balance and boost confidence with fuller, lifted cheekbones.
Lack of cheekbone definition can be genetic (seen at a young age) or due to aging, where cheekbones begin to lose volume and appear to sag. Non-surgical cheek enhancement augments or reshapes your cheeks with dermal filler in a quick, safe, and comfortable manner. This procedure can also decrease the appearance of nasolabial folds (smile lines), re-shape/define the jawline, decrease the downturned corners of one’s mouth and reduce under-eye 'bags'. Treatments are often combined for optimal results.
What are your options?During the initial consultation, one of our experts will examine your facial features and determine the best approach based on facial anatomy, proportion, and your desires. Patient expectation is a very important part of the process.
Fillers, which are injected into facial tissues in a non-invasive manner, are used to sculpt and enhance one’s cheekbones. This can be done in a subtle manner or to more noticeably re-shape one’s face. Most filler will last about 1 year, but longevity can vary from patient to patient. Once the effects begin to fade, the procedure can be repeated.
The types of filler used for cheekbone enhancement include:
Are there any permanent options?Fat injection/Lipofilling is a surgical alternative to filler that involves the transplantation of a patient’s own fat to reshape or enhance their facial structure. Liposuction is performed from an area agreed upon by the surgeon and patient. The fat is then filtered, washed, and injected into facial tissues to provide volume structure to the cheek. The solution can be permanent but requires a recovery period of 1 week to 10 days.
Facial Implants/prostheses are another surgical, permanent solution for cheekbone enhancement. Available in various sizes and shapes, one of our experts will make a recommendation based on your facial structure and expectations. Once healed, the cheeks look and feel natural to the touch.
