Do you know what is the so-called triangle of youth? We draw a horizontal line from the height of the ears to the top of the cheekbones. Then join two vertical lines to the right and to the left that end up on the jaw and form an inverted triangle. The wider other point of the triangle must be on the cheeks. With the passage of time, of course, the cheeks relax, causing the skin to hang. So the wider point of the triangle ends up being in the lower part of our face.

Filling of cheekbones

To solve this problem that is caused over time, plastic surgeons use the method of filling the cheekbones. With this technique they can restore the lost volume to the cheekbones and re-give a youthful look. The most important ways to repair the cheekbones are invasive and non-invasive methods.

Invasive method using implants

The first method for filling the cheekbones is the use of silicone implants. Silicone makes cheekbones look upright and has a lasting effect. This method is mainly used when there is a big problem in the area and we need a lot more volume.

Non-invasive method using injectable substances

Filling of cheekbones can also be done using hyaluronic acid. With this method we have much more control over the end result. Also, it is possible to gradually stop the session at exactly the point where it satisfies. Finally, even if someone decides that they no longer want the results of the treatment, there is no problem because the effect decreases with the passage of time.

Another injectable method is using fat from our own body. After collecting the necessary amount of fat from another part of the body, we process it and replace it in the area of ​​the cheekbones. This technique has an absolutely natural effect with respect to silicone, and its duration is much greater than hyaluronic acid.
