At Last! Advanced Solutions
As we age, our entire facial structure changes, as our skin loses elasticity and gravity pulls the natural fatty tissue in our faces a bit southward. One common complaint is loss of volume and fullness in the cheeks, causing them to become flat or sunken, imparting a dull and tired appearance to the face. Once the cheeks have lost their definition, the face looks older, sunken, and tired.
Nasolabial folds or parenthesis lines that extend from the corners of the nose to the corners of the lips become more pronounced and deeper. Problems such as “nasojugal groove” which refers to a dent or concavity that forms where the lower eyelid and the cheek meet, and such concerns as sagging cheeks, may be improved with a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa.
The Venus Viva™ is a safe, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that uses nanofractional radiofrequency technology to effectively treat facial lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, and diminish the appearance of surface imperfections. By triggering increased collagen synthesis, the Venus Viva™ also promotes thicker, healthier skin for several weeks after treatment.
There are many dermal fillers that have been shown to successfully enhance volume in the cheeks and mid-face region, including Voluma, Vollure, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Dr. Bachilo may recommend combining one or more of these to achieve your perfect facial contour.
Like dermal fillers, fat transfer injections may be used to fill in hollow areas and add volume to the cheeks and mid-face. In this procedure, liposuciton is used to harvest fat from problem areas where you have unwanted fatty pockets such as the hips, abdomen, or thighs. This fatty tissue is then processed and liquefied, then injected into target sites such as the cheeks. This procedure is generally very safe and looks very natural because it uses the patient’s own fat. The downside to this treatment is that the body may absorb some of the transferred fat and you may need to repeat some of the injections.
The Venus Legacy™ and BTL Exilis™ systems provide advanced skin tightening, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving overall skin tone and surface imperfections. This system also promotes increased production of collagen to improve skin texture for weeks following the treatment.
If you want a more permanent solution than what dermal fillers can offer, cheek implants may be surgically inserted to produce a natural-looking facial contour.
If you want to address other issues in addition to flat or sagging cheeks, a surgical facelift will also lift and tone the entire face, including the chin and lower face area, the cheeks, and the brow and forehead. Naturally, a surgical procedure is a more invasive treatment than the others mentioned and will only be recommended in cases where less invasive treatments will not be sufficient to produce the desired improvement.
