One facial procedure that transforms the look of your face is cheek implants. Some people suffer from deficient, flat cheeks from birth. Others are affected by age and gravity. Dr. Frenzel specializes in augmenting the cheeks and correcting issues that are presented.
The benefits of cheek implants are innumerable. Besides the instilled confidence, you will see that the shape of your face is transformed. By adding depth to the cheeks, your face has a more definite, pronounced look.
During the procedure, Dr. Frenzel adds a special, anatomical implant to the cheeks. Fat transfer can also be used separately or in conjunction with small implants. Fat transfer is beneficial when people have suffered a loss of fat in several areas that are difficult to treat with implants alone.
Traditionally, contoured cheeks and high cheek bones are designed for their youthful appearance. This means that aging can have a negative effect on the facial structure. Cheek implants correct shallowness in the mid cheeks due to loss of fat and gravity.
While a facelift or mid-face lift can restore cheeks by lifting the sagging jowl fat back into the cheek area, that may not be enough to attain maximum lift.
When undergoing cheek implant surgery, a small incision is made inside the mouth in the crease above the upper lip. Then, silastic cheek implants are positioned in place and dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions.
One of the benefits of cheek augmentation is that it is an outpatient procedure performed under general or local anesthesia with mild IV sedation. Recovery is fast and discomfort is minimal.
When fat transfer is used in conjunction with implants, fat is harvested through liposuction, usually on the abdomen or thigh. The fat is purified, prepared into vials, and stored in a special freezer. The fat is injected in layers into the sallow areas of the cheeks in two to three sessions.
Keep a youthful appearance with cheek implants and a fat transfer.
