This patient has been receiving the non-surgical filler treatment to her face for several years. One day she came in for another filler treatment when Dr. Kim suggested that she may be more satisfied with more noticeable and lasting result of cheek implants. Patient underwent cheek implant procedure with Dr. Kim to improve the hollowness of her cheek (especially the lower cheek region). The pictures on the right are 3 months after the procedure.
This is a 44 year old patient who came in to improve the tired and gaunt appearance of her face. Specifically she was bothered by the sunken cheek and the under-eye areas. She was also bothered by the neck laxity and jowl formation near her jaw line. She underwent the Combined Face Lift, cheek implant, lower eye blepharoplasty with laser resurfacing, and lip enhancement with SMAS with Dr. Kim.
Part of aging process is loss of volume especially at the cheek area. This can be seen best on oblique view where you will see sunken contour over the cheeks. In addition to volume loss at the midface, she has developed significant sagging of cheek, jawline and the neck. For patients like her, facelift with cheek implant can have pronounced synergistic effect. After the combined cheek implant and face lift, she now has a better 3-dimensional definition to her overall facial contour. The pictures on the left was taken about 6 months after the procedures.
