Cheekbone Lift and Volume Creation
Cheekbone Lift and Volume Creation Without Implants
By using Serdev Suture Lifting method, we can effectively achieve a cheekbone lift and in the same time create the necessary volume, without the use of implants. Thus, we also treat the nasolabial folds and tear troughs. Dr. Serdev performs the cheekbone lift through skin punctures only. Therefore, there is no cutting of skin and most importantly – no scars! The punctures disappear within 1-2 days. TV stars use such rejuvenation to appear on screen next day.
Wrongly, many physicians try to fill the nasolabial folds in order to create volume. Thus, they create a total projection of the lower part of the face (the so called “primate face”). In the same time, fillers add heaviness, which leaves the skin stretched after their absorption. The correct approach for cheekbone enhancement is to lift the soft tissue back to the zygomatic bone, restore cheekbone fullness, create the necessary volume – medially or laterally – and thus elevate the cheekbone. In this way, we eliminate the tear trough and nasolabial folds and improve the facial expression. Additionally, we achieve a youthful elongation of the “beauty triangle”, which is responsible for the beauty of the lower face.
Cheekbone Enhancement and the “Beauty Triangle”
Cheekbones are relevant to nearly all aesthetic norms. Unfortunately, pronounced, high, and youthful cheekbones are rare.
The chin and cheekbones create the so called “beauty triangle”. Asian cheekbones are pronounced laterally but are flat in front. Vice versa – in Caucasians cheekbones are often more pronounced at the front, but quickly drop. They are almost absent in elderly.
Bichat’s fat pad (Corpus adiposum buccae) is of great significance in facial and cheekbone contouring. Often, after our 30s, the fat pads lose connection to the zygomatic bone and droop in, creating the tear troughs. Moreover, they hang over the nasolabial folds, making the latter deeper and more visible. This is why lifting the cheekbones back in their place is more aesthetic than filling the deep folds, which makes the face look obese and round. The Serdev Suture cheekbone lift without scars and without implants can easily restore the “Beauty Triangle”.
