In the field of antiaging procedures, facial features can be affected by minimally invasive interventions, thought to be as minimally traumatic as possible, with the benefit of quick recovery, interventions that will rejuvenate the face and limit the effects of premature aging.

Dr. Alina Mîtcan, specialist in plastic surgery, aesthetics and reconstructive microsurgery, tells us about cheekbone volumization interventions, state-of-the-art procedures, aimed at restoring fullness and eliminating atrophy of the cheeks due to the premature aging process.

Cheekbone volumization is aimed at people experiencing premature aging and loss of volume due to fat loss in the mid-face area.

People who want to have more volume in their cheeks or more pronounced cheekbones can resort to these procedures, with good results that bring freshness and harmony to the face.

What options are there for cheek augmentation?

1. Facial lipofilling: the injection of prepared fat, after harvesting it from another area of ​​the patient’s body (thighs, abdomen, etc.), to add volume to the cheeks;

2. Hyaluronic Acid Injections: These fillers are FDA approved and are made with hyaluronic acid, which is our body’s own extracellular matrix.

3. Malar silicone implants.

What do the cheekbone volumization interventions carried out by the esthetician entail?

Cheek fat augmentation is an outpatient procedure and patients can go home the same day.

During the first consultation, anesthesia options are discussed with patients to provide comfort during the procedure.

Cheekbone volumization procedures are performed gently, non-traumatically, with patients having the following options: local anesthesia, general anesthesia or sedation.

For a fat transfer procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions to harvest fat from either the abdomen or flank and back areas, processing it and distributing it to the cheeks. Not all of the fat will survive and the procedure may need to be repeated, but the amount that survives will remain forever as the injected fat becomes integrated into the body’s own tissue.

Filler/hyaluronic acid injections involve an office visit and may need to be repeated every 8-12 months.

Injections are made on the cannula deep into the local structures. A topical anesthetic cream can be applied beforehand.

How is the recovery of patients after cheekbone volumization procedures?

Recovery after these minimally invasive interventions is quick and painless.

During recovery, patients can be helped post-procedure by the following methods:

I receive medication to relieve pain and/or reduce inflammation for several days after the procedure.

If there are some swellings and bruises, local creams based on heparin or arnica can be applied, they will fade in a few days and disappear a maximum of 7 days after the procedure. You can keep cold (ice) locally in the first days.

Returning to work and most activities after these interventions can be achieved relatively quickly. Resume more intense activities after 1-2 weeks!

It is also important and recommended to sleep face up for the first week, and the position of the head during sleep should be higher than the body. We recommend using 2 pillows.

We avoid the sauna, swimming pool, solarium in the first 2 weeks!

We avoid deep facial massage!

We avoid exposure to the sun 5-7 days after the procedure!
