A youthful look has a full, high cheek. It is not coincident that make up is used to artifically create shadows below the cheek to accentuate this area. With time the fullness of the cheek begins to descend creating jowls and prominent folds and creases around the mouth. There are several methods to address this ranging from a facelift to temporary fillers such as the Juvederm line of products including Voluma. Surgically placed implants are another option to restore beauty to the cheek.
The benefit of a cheek implant over fillers is that it is permanent with less down time compared to a traditional facelift. Implants can also be used for conditions that lead to facial wasting. All of these methods can be discussed with Dr. Guy at the time of consultation.
