Why are my cheeks sunken in?

Sunken or hollow cheeks can be the result of various factors, including aging, genetics, and lifestyle. As we age, the natural fat pads in our faces diminish, leading to a loss of volume and a hollow appearance. This phenomenon can contribute to an aged or tired look, impacting overall facial harmony. Sun exposure, smoking, and other variables can further exacerbate the signs of facial aging.

How can I restore volume to my hollow cheeks?

While cheek fillers and augmentation with cheek implants are popular options for addressing volume loss, many patients seek a more natural approach with long-lasting results. BeautiFill laser liposuction plus fat transfer is a preferred choice by many patients, offering the convenience of a minimally invasive procedure and the potential for long-lasting, natural-looking outcomes.

What are the benefits of fat transfer vs. cheek fillers?

Some of the most exciting benefits of fat transfer for cheek enhancement over traditional fillers include:

  • More natural, subtle results
  • Can last for years or even decades
  • Fat transfer allows for precise cheek augmentation
  • Reduced risk of side effects and adverse/allergic reaction

How does BeautiFill for the cheeks work?

BeautiFill laser liposuction plus fat transfer involves the use of advanced laser technology to gently and precisely remove excess fat from another area of the body. The harvested fat is then purified and strategically injected into the cheeks to restore volume and enhance facial contours.

Where is fat taken from during BeautiFill laser lipo plus fat transfer?

During BeautiFill laser liposuction, fat is typically harvested from areas with excess fat deposits and/or areas where the patient is hoping to slim their contours. This approach not only enhances the cheeks but also offers the added benefit of body contouring in the donor areas. Common sites for liposuction during BeautiFill include:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Flanks

How long do BeautiFill results last?

The longevity of BeautiFill results varies from person to person. However, many patients enjoy enduring outcomes that can last for several years. One of the most important things to keep in mind about preserving your BeautiFill cheek augmentation results is that weight fluctuation can dramatically affect your outcome, as weight gain can make the transferred fat cells become enlarged, while weight loss can reduce their size and potentially lead to sunken cheeks once again.

Is there a max weight limit for getting laser lipo?

Ideal candidates for BeautiFill laser liposuction plus fat transfer should generally be within 15 – 20 pounds of their goal weight. Additionally, candidates should have maintained a stable weight for about 6 – 12 months to ensure optimal results.
