Busting a common myth about microliposuction and why it may be the best method for treating lipoedemaRead more
Cheeks are an important part of the face and as we age the structures of our face change including the underlying support – skull, muscles and fat – which causes the face to shrink in some places, fat and muscle to descend with gravity and skin to become thinner and less elastic.
Without cheek volume the face no longer has its natural youthful curves and skin can sag around the chin area (jowls) and around the corner of the nose to the mouth (nasolabial lines) as well as causing eye bags and hollows (tear trough).
To achieve the youthful appearance of an ‘upside down’ triangle, Dr Prerna Mittal will inject a dermal filler into the area above the cheek bone to restore support and volume to the cheek area. This in turn assists in filling the hollows or sagging skin on fat pads of the cheek to give a balanced facial shape and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The patient will see results immediately as the face will appear softer, more youthful and uplifted.
