When someone tells you that you have wonderful, strong cheekbones, you probably take it as a compliment while breathing a sigh of relief at the same time. Strong cheekbones used to be a virtual guarantee that you would sail through the aging process, maintaining both your dignity and your beauty. However, this is not always the case. Dr. Kevin Sadati has found through years of practice and research that people in Newport Beach and Orange County will begin to lose density and volume in their cheekbones over time. This allows the aging process to expedite, letting skin sag and muscles weaken. However, there are several surgical and non-surgical options available to help save your cheek bones.
Options for Keeping Your Cheeks Strong
Non-surgical facelift — A non-surgical facelift is a procedure in which dermal fillers are used to enhance the appearance of your face. These fillers are designed to provide you with temporary relief, and will help rejuvenate your cheeks and define that area around your cheekbones again. The average non-surgical facelift procedure will have results that last for 6-9 months. Many patients come back to Dr. Sadati’s office for touch-up procedures in order to maintain their look.
Cheek Implants — Cheek implants can be created to provide permanent results. These implants are placed near the cheekbone area, allowing patients to have lush, full cheeks once again. There is minimal scarring associated with this particular procedure, and most patients will find that they have recovered within two weeks time. Dr. Sadati uses state-of-the-art computer imaging software to create cheek implants that are perfect for the individual patient. This ensures that every patient receives one-of-a-kind results that allow them to look like their best, natural selves.
Fat Grafting — Fat grafting is a unique option for patients who want to focus on their cheeks. This procedure, which was pioneered by Dr. Sadati, removes fat from an unwanted area and transfers it to the face. The fat graft is also injected with Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, which helps the patient enjoy long-term results as well as a quick recovery time. This is a natural alternative to other cosmetic procedures, and the results are simply stunning. Many patients enjoy the fact that the benefits are two-fold — they get a boost of youthfulness and vitality in their face while unwanted fat is removed from another part of their body.
Your face is the gateway to your soul, and if you feel you are aging too fast it might be your cheeks that are failing you. In many cases, working on your cheeks can help fix many of the other aging issues that are present on your face.
When your surgery is complete, you will look young and refreshed. It will allow you to feel confident once again, knowing that you look young and full of that special zest for life.
