The Top 2 Procedures For Lifting Droopy Cheeks

The main cause of droopy cheeks is aging. While not all people will experience this as they age, it can be exceedingly frustrating for those that do. Fat and skin can descend to throw off facial proportions and cause fullness in the wrong places. Not only can this make a patient look aged, but it weighs down the face. There are treatment options. Here are the top 2 procedures for lifting droopy cheeks.

#1: Midface/Cheek Lift

The cheek equivalent of a facelift, this procedure lifts the descended structures back to their natural positions. It also removes any extra skin which may be contributing to a heavier facial appearance. Out of the various anti-aging facial surgeries, a midface lift is performed on the broadest age range. Additionally, it is also frequently performed with a facelift.

#2: Dermal Fillers

While there are several non-surgical options that can help lift the cheeks, dermal fillers are among one of the most effective and reliable options. In cases where there is little extra skin or the fat has not descended significantly, cheek fillers can help balance out the look of the face. Augmenting the appearance of the cheekbones can promote a balanced and younger looking facial appearance. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

What Is The Best Treatment For Sagging Cheeks?

By | Face, Cheek Augmentation
Aging affects every person differently. Even though aging often includes the same processes, due to genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle patients will see different changes in facial appearance. For example, the skin loses elasticity and slows collagen production. One patient may see their neck and jowls begin to sag due to this. This is often corrected with a facelift. Another patient may see more sagging in their cheeks and midface. What is the best treatment for sagging cheeks? The right treatment for sagging cheeks will depend on the factors mentioned above as well as age. For patients under their forties, it is likely that Dr. Jonov will recommend non-surgical treatments such as fillers or a thread lift. If the look of your face is because of excess fat or not due to aging, he may recommend a buccal fat removal or cheek implants. For patients in their late forties and above, Dr. Jonov may explore options such as midface lift. Also known as a cheek lift, the procedure lifts and repositions descended fat in the cheeks and midface. Occasionally, it may also address extra skin. This is sometimes performed on younger patients based on their anatomy and on a case-by-case basis. It is worth exploring all of the surgical and non-surgical options to treat sagging cheeks. The best way is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov. Call us at 425-775-3561. You can also reach out online using our Price Simulator™, chat, or contact form.

Cheek Implants Kirkland: Are Cheek Implants Safe?

By | Face, Cheek Augmentation
High cheekbones have become a common goal among plastic surgery patients. Whether patients want a slimmer looking face or the “apple” appearance to the cheeks, cheek implants are one way to achieve this appearance. With a common non-surgical option, cheek filler, many patients opt for this procedure instead. However, cheek fillers cannot always achieve the results patients are looking for and are not a permanent solution. When deciding on cheek implants, patients often wonder: are cheek implants safe? Cheek implants are often designed to match each patient’s anatomy and made of non-toxic materials such as silicone. This makes the rejection rate low and steady with roughly any other implant procedure. As a surgical procedure, the cheek augmentation surgery itself comes with basic surgical risks like infection, unsatisfactory results, fluid collection, and scarring. Overall, chronic complications or risks are rare, especially when you choose a capable surgeon like Dr. Jonov.  Overall, the answer to the question: are cheek implants safe?, is yes. In good surgical candidates, surgical cheek augmentation is a safe procedure with few risks. Dr. Jonov can evaluate your individual risk during a consultation.

Cheek Augmentation: Filler Or Implants?

By | Injectable Fillers, Cheek Augmentation

Undefined and hollowed cheeks can contribute to an aged appearance or create facial imbalance. There are many options to correct this and restore balance and achieve a defined face. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we offer surgical and non-surgical cheek augmentation options. 

The least invasive and one of the most popular options is cheek filler. Cheek filler uses temporary dermal fillers to provide fullness and definition in the cheek area. These results will eventually go away though, meaning you will need to refresh your cheek filler occasionally. For patients not wanting an implant, or those who want to try out the look first, cheek filler will not permanently augment the cheeks. 

Patients wanting permanent results, or who need larger correction, are often candidates for surgical cheek augmentation with an implant. During this procedure, Dr. Jonov would place implants in the cheeks to create a balanced and proportional appearance. The implants would be sized specifically to fit and complement your facial features. 

Comparatively, filler is malleable, but provides temporary results. Implants are permanent and can provide more dramatic results in some cases. To know which option best suits you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery by calling 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
