Options for Improving the Appearance of Cheeks

For over 50 years, cheek implants have been a reliable method for correcting and balancing the sunken appearance of the face that can come with age. In general, a cheek lift provides augmenting of the contour of a narrow face with weak cheek structure. As we age, the malar fat pads in the cheeks that provide fullness lose their volume and begin to sag. An enhancement is an easy way of adding a rounder, more youthful look to your face.

A consultation with one of our Tarzana dermatologists can provide you with the information you need in order to begin the simple transformation of a cheek enhancement. A variety of options are available to suit your personal needs, from injections to implants. Fat grafting can be used to transfer fat from your body to be injected into the face. This may be the best long-term solution when compared to the other options. Other injections include collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen is a key protein found abundantly in the human body that has the ability to restore fullness in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is another substance naturally found in the body that supports the transfer of nutrients to the skin. Many dermatologists provide these options in products, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and Sculptra.

Cheek implants are another way of adding dimension to the cheeks. Our expert in cheek augmentation in Tarzana will be able to provide you with an implant option that will best suit your needs and help you choose the custom shape of these implants.
