What are the top Solutions for Hollow Cheeks?
I got what they call ‘Hollow Cheeks’. Are there any solutions out there that can help me out? I have seen some things online but do not know what I can trust. This has been an issue that has consistently frustrated me over the years. Hopefully there is an affordable option available.
Great Question Maxie! There are a number of options. Both surgical and non-surgical options might provide good results. I would recommend a consultation to assess what are the best options for you. One method I like is the fat transfer, taking fat from abs, hips or thighs for example, and injecting it into the depressed cheek areas. This does involve surgery but can provide very pleasing and long lasting results. The non-surgical option is preferred by many because there is little downtime and the types of fillers used (Voluma, Sculptra, Juvederm, etc) can last 1-2 years before needing to repeat the injections.
Dr. Robert N. Young has 3 Filler to lip lines before & afters:
This is a very improvable situation for most patients. Usually hollow cheeks are treated with:
a) Your own fat, or
b) An FDA-approved filler like Voluma, Sculptra, Radiesse, Juvederm, or Restylane Lift.
Evaluation starts with photos and an in-person or video consultation. Fat has the benefit of being your own tissue, and can result in permanent filling. The filler products have the benefit of not requiring a surgical procedure, being reproducible on follow up maintenance visits, and also going away if you don't like the result of a filler.
Fillers and fat grafting are sometimes combined with facelifting, cheek lifting, etc.
There are procedures to lift your own cheek fat and suspend it back over the cheekbones in properly selected patients.
