As one of the largest areas on a person’s face, your cheeks can draw a lot of attention. When a woman feels as if her cheeks are not feminine enough, it’s often because of a loss of volume that occurs over time. As we age, the loss of volume in our cheeks results in an aged and gaunt appearance. At Carolina Facial Plastics, I use several different methods of cheek augmentation, including non-surgical filler injections, to help my patients overcome cheekbones that aren’t what they used to be.
What Are Ideal Feminine Cheeks?
Ideally, feminine cheeks are strong and full, but give off a soft, healthy, and awake appearance. Feminine cheeks are also, of course, full of volume. When cheeks are too flat, bony, or do not have much definition, it’s possible to give off a masculine appearance.
It’s important to consider that all patients are unique and have a different idea of what type of look they’d like to attain, as all cheeks are different. As an expert facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte, one of the most important aspects I strive to achieve during a cheek augmentation is appropriate facial balance, where the cheeks appear to be in harmonious equilibrium with the nose, eyes, and chin. A cheek augmentation truly depends on the gender, facial shape, and ethnicity of the patient wanting the procedure.
Cheeks & Other Facial Features
Because the cheeks are rather large parts of our facial structure, they actually work to create balance in a very important way. Plump and healthy cheeks actually provide definition between our eyes and the lower face, something that is rarely achieved when cheeks are low, sunken, and flat. Secondly, feminine cheeks help to draw attention away from the nose as well as create a lifting effect which helps a woman see fullness in the lower face.
Undergoing Cheek Augmentation
At Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte, I perform cheek augmentation surgeries in a few different ways, including cheek implants, fat transfer, or non-invasive filler options. For patients who aren’t quite ready for a surgical cheek implant procedure, filler injections, like Restylane, Perlane, or Juvéderm, can provide a healthy and soft enhancement. If you believe that you’re ready for a more permanent result, cheek implants can be used to increase the prominence of the cheekbones.
During your initial consultation at my office, I’ll be able to better understand your goals and provide you with the best treatment plan for you to achieve ideal cheeks.
