A look in any of todays beauty magazine and it may seem that every model has full and prominent cheeks. Well having more defined cheeks, has been considered aesthetically more appealing for years. Fullness to the mid-facial region, gives the allure of youth. As we age, specific anatomic changes occur in the middle of the face, resulting in a flatter appearance.
With the recent introduction of synthetic injectable fillers (Radiesse and Sculptra), plastic surgeons now have more options to treat patients wishing for a more prominent cheek bone. Besides the immediate effect of the procedure, this technique for augmenting the cheeks can be performed in the doctor's office and requires minimal down time.
Dr. Kwak can also use the injectable fillers to customize the amount of augmentation desired with greater precision.
