Many people will ask Dr. Wright why some women age more gracefully than others? Her answer is,” because some women maintain their high cheek bones, strong jaw structure and overall good bone structure which serves as “pillars” of beauty”. Many people think that their aging is due only to gravity and that we should simply “pick things up” when their face goes south- but our face ages more like a tire going flat. The flattening you see is actually loss of collagen, fat and even a bit of bone- and the result is sagging and sunken cheeks.
To find out more on how to get the plump cheeks back without going under the knife, read on to know Dr. Wright’s beauty approach to this common problem!
The new approach to the aging face is to look beyond lifting sagging skin and instead rebalance the face back to its full and youthful state. To add youthful definition to cheeks and jawbone, I prefer to refill and lift the area using a calcium based filler, Radiesse, which works well in this area. By using a 3-D Non-Surgical face Lift Technique, we now hold the secret to rescue the face from gravity and aging! Cheek augmentation using Radiesse is a very popular treatment as it delivers a two-fold advantage. First, the flattened cheek area is raised to a more youthful position. (Unfortunately cheek flattening is something that happens to all of as we age, partly due to some natural bone loss and partly due to facial fat loss). The second positive aspect is that this lifting also decreases the depth of the nasal fold.
Radiesse Cheek Augmentation is an effective, non-surgical, and minimally invasive option for those who wish to have more volume in the cheekbone area and enhance their overall facial contour and balance. Because the cheek area is augmented with an injectable dermal filler, the results are more natural, require little down-time, and have a low incidence of side-effects. Additionally, because no general anesthesia is required my patients can control her/his outcome by looking in a handheld mirror and providing feedback throughout the procedure.
