CHEEK ENHANCEMENT Augmentation
We here at FORT DENTAL HOSPITAL aim to achieve the goal of giving full cheeks to the patient.
With old age drooping or sagging cheeks become a concern for the patients,whereas younger patients are curious about having flat or thin cheeks. Patients with collapsed faces,due to congenital disorders,trauma ,infection,or post surgical treatment(e.g. cancer surgeries where part of the face is lost after the surgery).
Cheek enhancement/augmentation is achieved by:
Cheek implants:Cheek implants range in different size,shape and material.Commonly used material is silicone or other biological materials.These implants are placed in a manner such that they merge with the face and give a natural look to the patient.
Autologous fat:Sometimes patients' own fat is used as the filler.
Non surgical approach: Dermal fillers: With advancing age and changing lifestyle we tend to lose the dermal fat in our layer of skin.As a result of which our skin tends to wrinkle more,loses elasticity and starts to thin.
Dermal fillers are used to attain the young ,vibrant youthful look,which may have been lost due to disease,age or an attempt to enhance the beauty. Skin rejuvenation is achieved with these dermal fillers.Dermal fillers correct wrinkles,deep lines,frown line,sagging,lost volume due to ageing,nose correction,chin augmentation,tear trough correction,lip enhancement and facial asymmetry.
Dermal fillers help as a minimally invasive rejuvenation method for the skin.
