If you want to alter your face’s appearance, you have several different treatment options from which to choose. For example, using fillers or implants in the cheeks will result in plump, youthful-looking skin, but they achieve this effect differently.
To know which to pick, you first determine your aesthetic goals (why you are considering facial plastic surgery) and how you wish to alter your appearance. For example, do you want more pronounced cheekbones, a rounder face, softer features or firmness?
Cheek Implants Offer Permanent Roundness
Putting a small silicone implant in the hollow of your cheek is one way to change how your face looks. The permanent results from cheek implants mean your cheeks will always look naturally rounded and firm. The procedure takes about a day or two, and recovery usually takes a week.
Cheek implants can make your face look fuller and more balanced. Your plastic surgeon will ensure each implant is the right size for the desired result. In addition, they can shape the implants to fit any face shape you want.
Those with a weak facial framework can benefit the most from cheek implants since it would take numerous filler injections to get the same result.
Cheek Implants Reverse the Signs of Aging
The face loses fat and the bones restructure as we get older. Therefore, to an outside observer, it would appear that the features of our faces have sunken out. Additionally, the skin appears less supple.
Facial support structures diminish as we age, including the muscles and fascia. As a result, the skin becomes lax and loses its contours.
The color and flexibility of your skin may also shift as biological activities deep within the cells slow down. This is because the skin loses its ability to create collagen and maintain moisture as we age. Then, wrinkles and fine lines start to become permanent.
Fortunately, all these negative consequences of aging can be remedied with the help of cheek implants. By filling the space under your skin and over your shrinking muscles, they smooth out wrinkles, firm sagging skin and volumize your hollowing face.
