As we get older, our cheeks can sag from loss of volume due to decreased collagen production. Your facial structure can be lifted through the use of cheek implants to create a more youthful appearance. Here’s a guide to everything you need to know about cheek implants.
What are Cheek Implants?
Cheek implants are a cosmetic procedure to increase the volume and contour of a person’s face. There are three kinds of cheek implants. Implants can be placed during surgery to provide permanent results. A fat transfer moves fatty tissue from one area of the body to the cheeks to create a healthier appearance. Injectable fillers can also be used to bring more fullness to the face.
Depending on which option you choose, the procedure can last less than a few hours. You’ll have permanent results that you can notice and enjoy immediately. Any scarring will be inconspicuous and will fade over time. They can be removed later on if you decide they aren’t right for you.
When to Consider Cheek Implants
If you’re unhappy with the shape of your cheekbones, cheek implants may be an option you want to strongly consider. These implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Cheek implants can be highly beneficial if you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight or lost volume due to aging. Having a consultation with a qualified surgeon can help you determine which treatment option will be best suited for your individual needs.
