Individuals with cheekbones tend to look younger longer as the cheek tissue supports and ‘anchors’ the facial tissues upward. Without strong cheekbones, the facial tissues ‘slide’ inward as we age towards the mouth where the nasolabial fold and marionette lines deepen, the corners of the mouth droop and the jawline loses definition by jowling.
Augmenting the cheek bone, part of the MM Lift™, in addition to lifting the facial tissues upward, also adds some mild width to the face providing horizontal dimension in individuals with a long face. Radiesse® , Voluma, Restylane Lyft, and Sculptra® are not just wrinkle fillers; they are also global facial volumizers and great for nonsurgical cheek augmentation. They provide more volume than other fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm® Ultra, Belotero, or Juvederm® Ultra Plus and last longer than these fillers. Using these products, we can restore youthful cheek contours by filling under the skin so that it inflates or “lifts” the cheek tissues and augments the cheek.
Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mike Majmundar, uses his knowledge of proportional facial contours to recreate a balanced and natural nonsurgical cheek augmentation.
As with all other injections there can be temporary swelling, redness, and bruising, though the use of blunt cannulas decreases your risk. You will be provided with an ice pack after your treatment to use the remainder of the day. You may use your makeup and sunscreen immediately after treatment.
