While our society is generally obsessed with looking more youthful, there are some individuals who actually want the opposite: to appear more mature. While this can be due to many reasons, some are simply born with small or youthful features that may prevent a mature impression from coming across to others.
The most influential area of the body that every person will see when you meet them is your face. The face can be changed or altered with various procedures to make it appear more mature, which can be beneficial for one's career. Given the many features on the face, there are many ways to change the appearance of the face. Some of the most beneficial cosmetic procedures to appear more mature include facial liposuction and cheek augmentation.
Facial liposuction is very popular among men and women for creating a slimmer, more mature facial appearance. Some people are just born with chubby cheeks and a round face, both of which are often associated with youth. Despite even the best attempts at diet and exercise, fullness in the face is often very difficult to address. This is where facial liposuction can help.
Facial liposuction can eliminate the extra fat cells in the face to create a slimmer, more defined appearance. This is completed using a technique called Smartlipo that uses a laser to liquefy and destroy fat cells so that they can easily be removed. This is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure and involves a limited recovery time compared to traditional liposuction techniques. The laser is ideal for the face and jaw line due to the small size. An additional benefit to the Smartlipo technique is that the skin will be tightened by the laser as the surgery is performed.
The cheeks are another prominent feature of the face that can be altered to dramatically improve the overall facial appearance. Some individuals have chubby cheeks, which may make them appear younger and less mature than they actually are. Cheek augmentation with implants can add more definition and contour to the cheek area and create the look of high cheekbones. Those who have lost contour with age, have a flat or narrow face, or a weak cheek structure can benefit from implants. Cheek augmentation surgery is relatively inexpensive and simple compared to other surgeries. It is often combined with other procedures such as a chin augmentation, facelift or rhinoplasty.
When cheek augmentation surgery is performed, incisions are placed either inside of the mouth or below the eyes. Implants, which are typically silicone, can be placed inside of a pocket which is formed in between the soft tissue and the cheek bones. This location will appear natural and can provide more definition in that area. The surgery is completed with the use of anesthesia to eliminate pain. The patient will notice that the cheeks are bruised and swollen after the surgery. This will take two to three weeks to heal.
