The cheekbones can be a defining facial feature that helps enhance your overall appearance. Yet not everyone is born with great cheekbones. Still, it's not impossible to achieve an excellent and sculpted appearance. This can easily be achieved by visiting our San Francisco plastic surgery center. There are both surgical and non-surgical options available for facial enhancement and rejuvenation. Let's take a moment to look at both regarding the enhancement of the cheekbones.
About Cheek Augmentation
In essence, cheek augmentation treatments will involve the use of facial implants or facial injections in order to enhance the overall appearance and structure of the face. The best option for a patient can vary, so it's important that you first meet with a cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco to find out which option is the best for you. Let's first look at cheek implant surgery.
Cheek Implant Surgery
Cheek implant surgery involves the use of specially made facial implants that are placed under the skin in order to improve the overall contour of the face. These implants can be placed through incision made inside of the mouth, through incisions made around the lower eyelid area, or through incisions made for other facial rejuvenation surgeries. The facial implants come in different shapes and sizes, and they can be customized to the needs of the patient.
Ideal Candidates for Cheek Implants
The best candidates for this facial rejuvenation surgery are people who would like to enhance the contours of their cheekbones and are healthy enough for surgery. These candidates should be in good overall health and not experience any serious health problems that would cause surgery to be a risky endeavor.
Dermal Fillers and Cheek Augmentation
Dermal fillers are injections that increase the volume in the injection site. These fillers are made of various kinds of materials, some of which are natural in origin (e.g., fat injections, which use a patient's own fat) while others are specially synthesized materials often based on substances that occur naturally in the human body (e.g., hyaluronic acid).
For cheek augmentation purposes, the dermal fillers will be injected into the cheek area to enhance the shape an volume. The effects of dermal filler injections will last for a few months, and repeat treatments can be performed as needed.
Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers
The best candidates for dermal filler cheek augmentation are people who would like to improve the appearance of their cheekbone area but are not good candidates for surgeries such as San Francisco facelift. Tests will be performed in order to determine the best dermal filler to use.
