The eyes may be the windows to your soul, but your cheeks are the frameworks supporting them! If yours aren’t the right shape, you also know there’s only so much you can do with makeup and contouring. Flat cheekbones, or perpetually chubby cheeks can pose a problem when you want your profile to be striking. At Kalos, we have a world class, double-board certified plastic surgeon who can create the look you’re going for!
Facial Features Make The Difference
The way to get more defined cheeks depends on the shape of your cheek to begin with. A very full cheek may need volume removed, while a flatter facial structure might benefit from implants.
- Cheek Reduction: Those with fuller cheeks may wish they were more narrow and defined. Using an intra-oral approach, Dr. Stong can remove the buccal fat pad, which is the pocket of fat under the cheek bone. This places a hollow under the cheek-bone, emphasizing it.
- Cheek Augmentation: Not everyone has chubby cheeks, though. In some faces, the cheek bones are more flat, without the lift or definition. To frame the face better, Dr. Stong can place a medical grade cheek implant to simulate the ridge of bone at the midline. This improves the symmetry of the facial structure and appearance of heath.
- Cheek Lift: When the problem isn’t the structure of the face, but the appearance of time, the best option is a cheek or midface lift. This procedure addresses cheeks that droop and sag, or that have created deep lining between the nose and lips.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Stong and find out how your cheeks can make you look amazing!
