Do cheek implants make you look younger in Charlotte NC?
You might be wondering — do cheek implants make you look younger? The answer is, sometimes. It depends a lot on the structure of your face and the effects of age. The sinking of the malar pad (the fat in the cheeks that creates the ever-popular chubby-cheeked look) is one of the natural effects of advancing age. In some cases, the right implant might be able to reverse the effect. It will take an experienced facial plastic surgeon with an eye for facial aesthetics and an intuitive understanding of aging patterns to tell you if this is so in your case.
Cheek implants and the alternatives
If you do decide to get cheek implants, make sure you won’t have to do a lot of talking for at least a week afterward. To remove the risk of visible scarring, the surgeon will make the surgical incisions inside your mouth. Have soft foods and meal replacement shakes handy. Stop smoking from a couple of weeks beforehand until the healing process is complete. Your surgeon will have more advice on what to do before and after the procedure. There’ll be some swelling, bruising and limited movement of the mouth and lips afterward. Watch out for any sign of fever. Sometimes you can get the same results through fat implantation. Filler injections can also be used, but they only have a temporary effect.
