Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to restore the volume of the zygomatic region and to correct facial asymmetries, in order to redefine the contour of the face.
This method serves as a procedure to combat various factors that affect the aesthetic appearance of cheekbones: genotype, sudden weight change, aging, imbalances or physiological hormonal changes, smoking, repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation and gravity.
From an etiological point of view, the loss of the volume of the cheekbones involves the bone, muscle tissue, ligaments, fat compartments, based on a predictable model. The most used tools for restoring the volume of the cheekbones are the fillers, of which the first option is hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a biodegradable and transparent substance, produced naturally in the skin, joints and bones, so the risk of developing an allergic reaction is minimal.
During the procedure (augmentation of the cheekbones), the concentrated hyaluronic acid is injected procedurally at the level of some areas of the zygomatic region, precisely selected by anatomical criteria and according to the particularities of the patient's physiognomy. The doctor adjusts the concentration and amount of the substance and decides the depth of the anatomical planes on which he will intervene in order to result in a more natural appearance.
Through its rheological properties, visco-elasticity and cohesiveness, the injected hyaluronic acid acts as a ligand between tissue molecules and causes forces of antigravity resistance, resulting in the restoration of the volume of the cheekbones and the effect of instant facelift.
The procedure is minimally invasive, fast (15 minutes), painless, applying anesthetic cream beforehand, and the risk of developing hematomas or edemas is minimal so that the injection technique uses very fine, atraumatic cannulas.
Also, the possibility of self-assessment during the procedure leads to the integration of realistic feedback and ensuring patient comfort and safety.For rates click here
