Cheek Implants In Gainesville, FL
As the skin ages, it loses youthful elasticity and collagen, which causes fatty tissue in the midface to migrate downward towards the mouth and nose. This relocation of tissue creates the appearance of volume loss between the highest point of the cheekbone and the resulting heavier smile (nasolabial) fold. Loss of volume in the cheeks can also cause cheeks to appear flat or sunken, preventing skin from draping over the cheekbones properly. But making small mid-face adjustments with Gainesville plastic surgery procedures, such as cheek implant surgery and cheek injections, can significantly restore a more youthful, rejuvenated look to the entire face by providing definition and structure.
Benefits Of Cheek Enhancement
Popular among both men and women, cheek enhancement procedures can improve contours of the cheek bones, restore youthful midface volume and enhance the effects of other cosmetic facial procedures. Dr. Tyrone, a plastic surgeon in Gainesville, FL, performs expert cheek enhancement using the following procedures.
Cheek implants augment bone structure in the cheeks by enhancing the foundation of the midface region. Malar implants rebuild volume lost due to aging. The loss of fat along the facial midline, under the eyes, and alongside the nose, are distinguishing characteristics that contribute an older appearance. Boosting the volume in the cheek area creates a more youthful appearance. Malar implants are placed on the cheekbone and held in place with small screws. These prevent the implant from shifting, while also allowing the implant to look and feel like a natural part of the bone. These implants can last forever, so it’s important that cheek augmentation expert performs the surgery.
Cheek injections plumb up the face yet are different from implants in the sense they are a temporary procedure. Dr. Tyrone uses an injectable filler, typically a combination of products, such as hyaluronic acid based gels and a longer lasting collagen boosting product, to increase volume in targeted areas of the face. The results from these injections usually last between six months and a year. Face rejuvenation injections are a great option for any patients who are seeking subtle, temporary improvements to their midface volume and facial definition.
