Defined cheeks? Yes please!
<p “=””>It has officially become a staple of beauty; having broader cheeks and a narrower chin will give you the desired ‘baby face’ and bring back the clock significantly.. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons are keeping quite busy pumping up the volume, there are a lot of ways to achieve that, be it quick fixes or permanent procedures, below are 5 ways to put your cheeks back on the map!
1 || Contour Correction
That’s the first approach we should go for as it’s the least invasive, to many, including myself contouring is a challenge, but makeup kits nowadays and step by step tutorials that fake the look of a totally different bone structure make it easy.. But then again, contouring is a skill that makeup artists are specialized with, unless you are really good in managing the right strokes you will end up looking like a clown..To sculpt the cheeks with makeup, using cream contouring is best, right below your cheekbones, then layer a matte bronzing powder on top to set it before applying powder blush on the apples of your cheeks for a flush of color. Finish it off with cream highlighter just above your cheekbones to make them pop. Be strategic about where you place the highlighter as itcan accentuate the wrong area delivering a drooped effect instead of an elevated one..
2 || The Filler Fix
As mentioned above, and as we age, the broad cheek/ narrow chin face shape will turn into a narrow cheek/ wider chin look. This drooping effect will create hollowness in the middle of the face, so it makes total sense to fill up that void using dermal fillers around the temples, cheekbones and medial cheek (which is the part of the cheek that lines up with the outermost corner of the lips) to restore a youthful look and plump up the face.. Hyaluronic acid fillers work well to restore volume loss. For best results, pairing fillers with skin tightening treatments like Ultherapy or BTL Exilis 2 to 3 weeks prior to injecting fillers for collagen stimulation. Depending on the filler and the patient’s lifestyle a voluminous look can last up to 2 years with proper maintenance.
3 || The Surgical Solution
With age, we will reach to a point where our once youthful apples of the cheeks begin to shrink and sag. A more invasive approach will promise to add volume and restoration.. This surgical solution involves structural fat grafting and promises to deliver, making it quite unbeatable.. Although considered costly, the beauty of it is that it’s permanent. Performing low pressure liposuction to remove fat from areas of the body like the lower abdomen,a layered microinjection of the fat then rejuvenates shrunken cheeks and hollows around the eyes. Moreover, and after the noticeable youthful volume restoration, fat grafts triggers stem cell action. Causing tighter looking skin thicker appearance whereblood vessels thrive in their new location.
