One of the most desired procedures for women between the ages of 30 and 40 is cheek augmentation. The pronounced projection of the cheekbones is an important distinguishing feature of the beauty of the face and the youthful appearance. They occupy the lateral (lateral) half of the middle front floor, and volume recovery in this area is becoming the gold standard in filler procedures.
With age and under the action of gravity, characteristic changes occur in the human face - loss of volume in the deep and redistribution of superficial fat deposits, relaxation of the ligament apparatus. Cheek augmentation is most commonly used to model the oval. Although paradoxical, giving volume in this area visually leads to elongation of the face and gives an elegant look. It is necessary to assess the adjacent anatomical areas, especially the central part of the face. Recovering lost volume in middle facial floor is essential before correction of the cheeks. This part of the face is one of the most beneficial for correction because it leads to significant improvement in the area mandible, nasolabial and marionette lines.
When it is necessary to do cheek augmentation

How cheek augmentation is done
The procedure is preceded by aesthetic consultation and measurement, within which facial features are analyzed. The area is drawn with a dermatological pencil. Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the cheekbones with both a needle and a cannula. Lidocaine cream or infiltrative anesthesia is used for analgesia. The filler is then placed on the bone or in the lower half of the skin, depending on the result sought and the product used, followed by a light massage to homogenize the product. The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes and the effect lasts about 8-12 months.
When using a cannula, the formation of bruises and hematomas is rare. There may be a slight swelling that will go away in 2-3 days. Anesthesia is not necessary. You can feel the filler within a week. Do not massage the treated area unless specifically instructed to do so. Stop visiting solariums, saunas, steam baths in the next few days. It is important to drink more water - about 1.5-2 liters to unleash the full potential of the filler.

Review of Dr. Stavrov, aesthetic dermatologist in Sofia
Cheekbone shaping is one of my favorite procedures, because with it we can easily achieve feminization of the face. An important part is the choice of a suitable product, because in some cases we are looking for an increase in the volume and projection of the cheekbones, and in others - only a lifting effect.Dr. Konstantin Stavrov, co-owner of the clinic Dr. Stavrov Aesthetics in Sofia
