Filler for Cheeks….Yes, Please

by

Rejuvenating the face is an art form and may include lifting brows, removing under eye skin, sculpting cheekbones and sagging jowls, and tightening the underlying muscles and skin of the face and neck. In a perfect world a facelift will do just fine, thank you, but what’s a girl to do with limited funds?

Pass the fillers please! Volume loss in the face is one of the most recognizable signs of facial aging. And it’s pretty simple and affordable to correct.

FDA approved products like Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra can provide volume in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, tear troughs and lips. Results can last anywhere from six months to one year depending on the products used and where they are injected. And, not all products are used to treat the same areas. A board certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery can assess individual patients and tell them where they can get the best results for volume enhancement with each product.

I have patients younger and older who ask me about using filler to help maintain a youthful appearance to the face. I realized not everyone can afford big facial cosmetic procedures, nor does every patient need surgery to begin with. In fact I avoid surgical intervention until it is absolutely necessary. The fact is, there are so many filler products on the market that are safe, and can be used to fake out the aging process.

It is so important to have a detailed consultation with your plastic surgeon to establish realistic expectations and desired results. Adding volume with FDA approved fillers to the areas between your eyes and cheeks, as well as lips and chin can take years off a face. Additionally, you get immediate results with minimal downtime.
