Voluma for a more angular face
As you age, you will be grateful for your round face as if will keep you looking youthful. But I can understand your desire for more definition. I think that Voluma in the mid-face/cheek area could help create a more defined facial contour. Make sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist with a lot of experience in Voluma.
Voluma in the Cheek Region
I have a round full face, what can I do? = several plastic surgery procedures are an option #voluma #buccalfatpad #masseterbotox
-Cheek augmentation with either soft tissue filled like voluma or cheek implants: Prominent cheek bones are essential for a chiseled "V" shape face
-Buccal fat pad removal. This procedure removes the excess of fullness in the lower cheeks that very often never improves with diet or exercise.
-Masseter muscle reduction with Botox application. Master muscle gives fullness and width to the lower posterior portion of the face. When this masticatory muscle is treated with Botox, it decreases it volume, thus giving a more delicate "V" shape face shape.
It is also important to have a normal to body fat content (Normal / Normal-Low BMI). Excess of fat in the body, specially in the face could hide prominent cheek bones and give fullness to the face, thus not allowing to have a chiseled face shape.
Patients interested in achieved a less round full face toward (chiseled face) with plastic surgery procedures should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in plastic surgery procedures of the face.
