Cheek Enhancement Techniques
By Patricia Berbari on December 06, 2012
For our patients in Ottawa, cheek enhancement surgery is designed to augment the contour of the cheeks. By replacing lost volume in the midsection of your face, Dr. Berbari can rejuvenate the appearance of your skin and amplify the projection of the cheeks to achieve more aesthetically pleasing proportions. Dr. Berbari utilizes a variety of cheek enhancement techniques to help her patient’s achieve and maintain desired cosmetic results.
The most commonly used products for cheek rejuvenation include:
- Fat Grafting
- Cheek Implants
While some of the injectable treatments last for a lifetime, others will need to be injected frequently, over an extended period of time, to help you maintain long-term, voluptuous results. Placing a cheek implant into the mid-section of the face requires surgery. Although cheek implantation is the most permanent cheek enhancement procedure, it is the most invasive. Injectable treatments require little to no downtime following treatment and dramatic results can be seen immediately.
Determining Which Technique Is Right for You
Our esteemed cosmetic surgeon can determine which technique is right for you by conducting a comprehensive examination of your cosmetic objectives, goals for treatment, medical history, and physical health and appearance. By carefully listening to your reasons for seeking treatment, we can gain a clearer understanding of what your expectations are for surgery. Dr. Berbari will work with you to formulate a beauty plan that takes into account all of the physical enhancements you would like to make.
Additionally, Dr. Berbari designs a surgical plan that will yield youthful, natural-looking results. The goal of cosmetic surgery is to correct structural imperfections or cosmetic flaws, which develop over time, and correct blemishes in the most natural and most subtle way imaginable. We want people to recognize that you appear more refreshed and beautiful, and not be able to detect that you have undergone cosmetic surgery.
At our Ottawa plastic surgery practice, we offer a wide range of enhancement techniques to help you achieve an outcome that exceeds your expectations. While a cheek enhancement procedure can be performed, alone, to radically improve lost volume in a patient’s face. For our patients in Ottawa, face lift and other plastic surgery procedures can be combined with cheek enhancement to produce a more dramatic makeover.
Injectables: By injecting a collagen-based, gel-based, or hyaluronic acid-based solution into regions of the cheek, Dr. Berbari can restore life to and reshape the soft tissue of the skin. Results from injectable treatments, including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Perlane®, can be seen for up to two years following treatment. However, cheek enhancement treatment using RADIESSE® or Sculptra® may need to be performed multiple times over several weeks to help a patient achieve satisfying, long-term results. Prior to administering an injection, Dr. Berbari will thoroughly examine your skin. By taking a comprehensive look at the texture and thickness of your skin, as well as the cosmetic flaws that exist on your face, our plastic surgeon can better determine the injectable solution that will work best for you and a course of action to take when performing your treatment.
Fat Grafting: Fat grafting is an extremely effective procedure, which is designed to restore fullness and definition to multiple areas on your body. During this technique, fat is taken from specific regions of the body, purified, and then re-injected into your cheeks. Fat grafting has grown in popularity because of the safety of the procedure.
Cheek Implant: Cheek enhancement surgery, using implants, provides a patient with a permanent change in the appearance of his or her cheeks. Implants come in several shapes and sizes and they are meant to redefine the framework of your cheeks. If you desire a fuller-looking, plumper, or more pronounced cheek or cheekbone, cheek implants may work well for you.
