What is face droop?
With aging, the cheek fat pads drop or lose their volume. This creates hollowness under the eyes or a chronically tired look. This dropping of the cheek also accentuates the nasal labial and marionette lines.
One of the most satirized aesthetic procedures is cheek augmentation. When overdone, an apple-cheek can appear with huge balls that look as if they obstruct vision. This is to be avoided at all costs. A natural refreshed look can be achieved with careful cheek augmentation that accentuates the cheek bones and triangularizes the face. A cat-look can occur if the cheek bones appear too wide with inadvertent or inaccurate cheek injection.
What can be done?
One of the latest techniques for cheek augmentation is dermal filler injections through a micro cannula. The blunt tip of the cannula pushes past vessels and nerves allowing the doctor to place the filler more evenly and precisely, with less trauma to the skin and the tissue below. Bruising is rare and the only sign of injection are several small entry holes that begin to seal up and heal immediately after treatment. For the client who can’t afford the possible downtime of regular injection techniques, this is a perfect solution.
