Treatment Options for Facial Volume Loss

Facial Implants: The Surgical Treatment Option for Lost Facial Volume

Facial implants are designed to augment and enhance the contours and cosmetic appearance of the face. The type of implants varies and include chin implants, cheek, malar and jaw implants. For instance, a chin implant can add lost facial volume while enhancing the proportionality and symmetry of the face. The size and location site of each implant really depends on the individual qualities of the patient’s face. A cheek implant, for example, can create fuller, plumper cheeks and allow for greater visibility of the cheekbones which become well-defined as a result of this procedure. Cheek implants are commonly composed of silicone.

Since an implant is a foreign device to the body, it is critical that a facial implant surgery is performed by a qualified cosmetic and plastic surgeon. Each implant can be professionally inserted during an out-patient procedure with Dr. Robert Schwarcz, a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon in New York City.

Facial Fillers: The Non-Surgical Procedure for Lack of Volume in the Face

Facial fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse are commonly used injectables that enhance facial volume. In addition, to creating volume and definition where it is absent, these fillers can also improve skin elasticity, sagging skin, and firmness. Other facial fillers exist for particular areas of concern and targeted areas of the face. In addition to treating under eye wrinkles and thinned out lips, Juvederm also fills in sunken cheeks.

Facial fillers are a non-surgical procedure usually performed at the same time as Botox on other areas of the face.

New York plastic and oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Schwarcz has two offices conveniently located in New York City and Scarsdale.
