Life takes a toll on everyone over time. Aging, gravity, changes in weight, stress, tiredness – they all affect how we look and feel. The cheek region of the face is one area that is greatly affected in some people. Many people enjoyed the full, rounded face of their youth only to lose this fullness over time. With the loss of youthful fullness, the soft curve of the cheek region is gone and the orbital bone beneath the eyes is apparent. This boney feature can add years to a person’s appearance by making him or her look tired, aged, and dramatically different than they once did.
Cheek augmentation is an enhancement procedure done to improve the contours and overall size of the cheeks. This procedure is popular among men and women who feel that their cheeks detract from their facial appearance. Some people have poorly defined cheekbones from the start, and they wish to enhance their appearance with defined and fuller cheeks. Others have lost cheek tissue over time due to aging or heredity, and they wish to regain definition and the full cheekbones of their youth. Cheek enhancement surgery focuses on the contours of the cheeks to fill in cheek tissues that has been lost under the eyes.
Dr. Maurice Khosh is a skilled and highly experienced facial plastic surgeon who offers two main options for cheek enhancement. Facial filler injections can be used to create subtle changes in the cheek region. This is typically done in younger patients who are in the early stages of cheek loss. The other option is a cheek implant that is surgically placed in the cheek region. This is typically done for patients who have experienced more severe cheek loss. The cheek implant fills the area where the youthful fullness once was to create a softer, more energetic appearance.
