When cheeks are flat and lack definition, they can cause the face to look masculine. Contouring the cheeks by adding volume can give the face natural-looking symmetry, youthful balance, and a more feminine appearance.
FOR PERMANENT RESULTS
Silicone implants, ideal for someone who wants to add a lot of volume as opposed to a slight increase, permanently add fullness and create a lifting effect. Keep in mind that silicone injections, which are not FDA-approved, are not the same as silicone implants and are believed to be problematic.
FOR LONG-LASTING RESULTS
Injecting fat taken from another part of your body, like the hips or butt, your plastic surgeon can give you fuller, plumper cheeks. Fat transfer is currently the most popular option for long-term fullness, but using your own fat requires an additional lipo-like procedure to be performed.
FOR FAST RESULTS
Fillers are a good way of test-driving what your cheeks could look like with fat injections or implants. Placing Sculptra Aesthetic in the upper area of the cheek adds fullness and can also lift the area below the cheek. Radiesse, Juvederm and Artefill can also be used to achieve similar results.
By lifting the cheeks with one of these methods, other facial features are subtly lifted, too-like the corners of the mouth and the jawline-which gives a nice contour.
