Question: My cheeks droop a little bit. Pictures of me make me appear older than I am. Is fat grafting involved in fixing a problem like mine or are non-surgical procedures used?
Answer: Well, I would either have to evaluate some pictures or examine you personally to be able to determine exactly what the issue is regarding your droopy cheeks, but if it is very mild a non-surgical procedure such as Ultherapy, which involves micro-focused ultrasound that is used to cause soft tissue tightening and lifting could be an option for you. Otherwise, most patients would either go for an injectable filler, such as Juvederm Ultra or Restylane or they may prefer a longer lasting injectable filler such as fat grafting. Another option would be the consideration of cheek implants, which would be a surgical procedure, but would provide permanent volumetric augmentation to the cheek area.
