What are the options for fuller, more youthful cheeks?

Hallmarks of youth are full, balanced cheeks that give the face a heart shaped contour. During the aging process, the cheeks descend and deflate, giving a squared off configuration to the face with heaviness in the jowls.

The endoscopic midface lift is the ideal procedure to restore cheek fat pads to their youthful configuration. If one has a gaunt, thin face, cheek implants can be used to permanently and safely augment the upper cheeks, volumizing the face. Semi-permanent options include fat transfer, while temporary options include injectable fillers such as Perlane, Radiesse and Sculptra. Consult with one of our double board certified facial plastic surgeons to see which procedure is best for your face.
