Non-Surgical Facial Volume Enhancement
Facial contour in the mid-face and cheeks is one of the features contributing to one’s femininity, masculinity, or youthfulness. As we age, we uncontrollably lose facial volume and the face may look as if it is “deflated.” Men and women often seek facial volume enhancement because they are interested in enhancing deflated cheekbones or any volume loss in the face. Now, non-surgical facial volume enhancement instantly adds definition to your face without the risks of anesthesia or surgery.
Who is a Candidate for Non-Surgical Facial Volume Enhancement?
Healthy men and women who desire a well-defined and youthful facial contour may be excellent candidates for non-surgical facial volume enhancement. During a consultation, Dr. Keni will work with you to help determine the best course of action that will deliver the most appealing results.
What is the Recovery like from Non-Surgical Facial Volume Enhancement?
Non-surgical facial volume enhancement is performed in our office, at FaceLove Facial Plastic Surgery, with topical and/or injectable numbing medication. A volumizing solution, such as Juvederm or Voluma, is gently injected into the cheeks and areas of the face with a very small needle. Minimal, if any, discomfort is experienced.
Most patients report minimal discomfort afterward but may take Tylenol, if needed. Aspirin, NSAID’s, and other medications known to cause bleeding and bruising are discouraged for one week prior and one week following the procedure. If present, mild swelling and bruising may last 7-10 days and may be treated with a cold compress. Makeup and other cosmetic products may be used to conceal any redness or minor bruising. Most patients return to their occupation and social activities on the same day.
FaceLove Facial Plastic Surgery now offers Juvederm Voluma®. Juvederm Voluma® is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid soft tissue filler available for use in the cheeks. Results are immediate and may last up to 2 years. Schedule a consultation now to learn more about facial volume enhancement or our other non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
