If everyone had a naturally perfect face, cosmetic surgery, cosmetics and other products designed to improve a person’s appearance would disappear. However, the fact that every single year people around the world spend billions upon billions of dollars improving their appearance makes it very clear that an attractive face is not something that comes naturally to everyone. What is even worse is that as a person ages, the characteristics that once made them attractive diminish. This is especially the case when talking about cheekbones and having full cheeks.
Interestingly, when most people think about the aging process, they associate aging with the development of wrinkles. And while it is true that as a person ages, they do develop more wrinkles, wrinkles in and of themselves are not what make a person look older. What makes a person look old is the fact that they lose volume in their face, especially around their cheeks.
If this is a new concept to you, take out a photograph of yourself when you were 15 years younger and compare it to how you look now. No doubt you will notice that in the area around your cheeks, you are experiencing some hollowing. This is what is giving you the aged appearance. If you’re looking to get your youth back, then getting cheek implants with the goal of achieving the right facial contour may be a good idea for you.
The human face has three main landmarks, or three main identifying features. These are the nose, the chin and the cheeks. These three features work together to create your facial profile and to give your face the symmetry and balance it needs to be attractive. When your cheeks start to become hollow, the entire balance of your face is thrown off. This usually happens as a result of the absorption of bone tissue that accompanies aging.
You may want to consider cheek implants if you have a flat and hollow look in your cheeks. Usually this hollowness extends to the areas around the eyes and is also noted in the temples.
If you are in good physical health and you are emotionally and psychologically stable, you may be a good candidate for cheek implants. If you look at yourself in the mirror and realize that your upper face needs definition, you may also be a good candidate for cheek implants.
As with any cosmetic procedure, the best candidate for cheek implants is someone who takes the time to understand what the surgical procedure entails, how long it is going to take for them to heal, what cheek augmentation can do, what cheek augmentation cannot do and what realistic changes you can expect cheek implants to make in your face.
