The aging process is inevitable. As we age, we lose facial volume because the skin and the layer of fat beneath the skin thins. Structures supporting the skin, such as cheek bones and cheek muscles also thin. So, what can be done?
Volume loss in the cheeks requires a cheek augmentation through volume restoration. Depending on the patient’s preferences and desired results, cheek augmentation can be accomplished by using fillers, by using implants or via fat transfer. At MilfordMD, we offer a wide range of fillers ranging from synthetic materials, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra or Radiesse to your own living fat and stem cells. Cheek implants are also an option for cheek bone restoration.
Sometimes if the loss in cheek volume is significant, extra sagging skin may require lifting and/or trimming in order to achieve optimal results. To find out whether you are a candidate for a cheek augmentation procedure, please call us today to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
