Cheekbones can help express a younger, more balanced facial appearance. Facial beauty is prone to the effects of aging, gravity and yes … sun exposure. Over time, the elegant contours of your face can give way to flatness and loss of volume. Although these effects might seem unavoidable, there are solutions to regain youthful cheekbone volume. Located in Denver, Dr. Thomas A. Narsete has helped several of his patients regain the volume and former shape of their face with a cheekbone augmentation.
What is Cheekbone Augmentation?
Cheekbone augmentation is a procedure used to correct the proportions of cheekbones that are too hollow or underdeveloped. It involves the use of an implant or injectable fillers to restore check volume and make the patient look younger and healthier.
Who is a good candidate for a Cheekbone Augmentation
There is no specific age that determines a good candidate for cheekbone augmentation. When you look in the mirror and see something that truly bothers you – that’s when you should pick up the phone and arrange for a Free consultation with Dr. Narsete.
Before your Cheekbone Augmentation
You will start with a professional consultation with Denver facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Narsete. His consults are a courtesy, and you will love the experience. He will go through a thorough exam and review your photos and explain all the options with you. At the end of the consult, you will know exactly which procedure works for you.
Types of Anesthesia
Dr. Narsete will discuss the type of anesthesia used for this procedure during your consultation and will depend on factors, such as your medical status and your comfort level. A local anesthesia may be used, which will numb the area but leave you awake during the procedure. A general anesthesia may also be considered, which would allow you to sleep comfortably throughout the surgery.
The Cheekbone Augmentation Procedure
During your consultation, Dr. Narsete will discuss which method of cheekbone augmentation is right for you. The following descriptions will give you a better idea of what you can expect from each procedure.
- Cheek Implants: One method of cheek augmentation is to undergo cheek-implant surgery. Cheek implants are placed over the cheekbones and can add shape and definition for natural-looking results. These facial implants are available in a variety of different sizes and shapes in order to match each patient’s individual facial structure. Cheekbone implant surgery can produce long-lasting results.
- Fat Transfer: Fat transfer, also known as fat transplantation, is another cheekbone augmentation technique that can produce long-lasting and natural-looking results. Fat transfer to the cheekbones involves collecting your body’s natural fat from an area with excess fat cells. This fat is then injected in order to revolumize the cheekbones with natural fat. About 70% of the fat survives a fat transplantation on average, leaving an abundance of healthy fat cells to help create more prominent cheekbones.
What is the cost of a Cheekbone Augmentation?
Cheekbone augmentation is considered to be elective, so most insurance providers will not cover the costs. To help make cheekbone augmentation affordable and accessible for everyone, Dr. Narete offers financing options which can be discussed during your consultation. For your convenience, Dr. Narsete accepts cash and all major credit cards. Financing options via LendingUSA is also available.
