Non-invasive approaches include fillers to lift the cheek back to where it originally was. Most patients are best treated from high to low to maintain more volume higher in the face. Thus, it is always better to address the under-eyes and cheek before treating the nasolabial folds. In men, it is very important to address all 3 vectors of cheek projection (posterior, lateral and anterior) in order to maintain masculinity while providing a more rejuvenated appearance.
The under eyes, cheeks and nasolabial folds should be analyzed as one unit. This will help you achieve a natural and balanced look.
The nasolabial folds should be filled last in the face. It is very important not to efface them completely as this will result in an unnatural look. Overfilling of this area may produce a simian or monkey-like appearance. This may be a result of effacing the natural fold, which exists between the cheek and the lip. It may also be a result of having a prominent mouth and lower face with a flattened midface and cheek. This causes the face to have a heavy and drawn appearance.
This procedure is quick; the result takes 10 to 14 days to fully show and ou can go back to work right away.
