Cheek Implants, Permanent Fillers, Saggy Jowls
Various temporary solutions Perlane, Volluma, Radiesse and Sculptra can give a good correction for one to two years. After this if a patient likes the look they can elect a more permanent solution like Artefill. Implants are wrought with complications and often require revision. The Vector Lift with one of these options will only build up the cheeks. The jowls will not be affected much. The jowls require a direct treatment as with liposuction, Precision Tx laser or fat dissolution injections. Please consult in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making treatment decisions. Cheers
Permanent Cheek Filler
In general, hereditary lack of mid-face and cheek volume with hollowing of the undereye can be corrected with cheek implant surgery or soft tissue fillers. Cheek implant surgery has the advantage of long-term improvement; however, cheek implants may not provide enough volume to correct the hereditary lack of volume that you have developed. In addition, as the face changes, a permanent cheek implant that looked good when you were 17, 18 or 19 may not be appropriate for your facial volume in your 30s, 40s and 50s.
My best advice would be to seek the skills of a certified cosmetic physician with years of experience injecting soft tissue fillers. You could certainly try soft tissue volume lifting using a long-term hyaluronic acid sugar gel such as Voluma™. This would give you a good sense of how much volume would be required to give you the best aesthetic outcome. Volume lifting using soft tissue fillers can indeed sometimes improve the appearance of droopiness of the jowl.
I have been a cosmetic plastic surgeon for 20 years, practicing in Yorkville. Injection volume lifting is a very common procedure in my practice.
I trust that this advice is of some assistance and best of luck.
