Prominent, sculpted, well-defined cheekbones are considered an important attribute of beauty and youth. Cheekbones play such a significant role in beauty because they form the core of our facial bone structure — framing and defining other facial features. Cheekbone Contouring (also called Cheekbone Augmentation) is a powerful, nonsurgical aesthetic technique that refines, defines, and enhances the cheekbones, creating ideal facial structure, contour, symmetry, and balance.
The key to elegant, natural-looking cheekbone augmentation is to always create facial balance and harmony, while preserving the individual’s facial identity. Dr. Hamilton provides elegant, bespoke cheek-contouring for her patients, strategically injecting a dermal filler along the cheekbones to restore volume and raise the location where the light strikes the face – creating the illusion of a lifted appearance. Her aesthetic eye and artistic ability create structural beauty, with cheekbone angles that look radiant in every light.
Cheekbone Augmentation appeals to individuals who inherited relatively flat or hollow cheekbones and to those whose cheekbones have diminished in size over time. As time passes, the volume of the facial skeleton (i.e. cheekbone) shrinks itself as well as the overlying fat pads and surrounding soft tissues. Cheekbone augmentation addresses this natural sequela of aging.
Cheekbone Contouring attracts individuals who desire defined, full, proportionate cheekbones without surgical intervention or downtime. Results last up to 18 months. Cheek Contouring can also be performed surgically with Facial Fat Grafting. The individual’s own body fat is extracted using liposuction, processed and injected to form highly-sculpted cheekbones.
Cheekbone Contouring is often done in conjunction with other augmenting treatments (nonsurgically with fillers and surgically with the patient’s own fat). The most distinct structural features on the human face are the cheeks, chin, and nose. To optimize overall facial bone structure, the cheekbones, chin, and jawline require subtle enhancements for harmony and balance. As a result, to achieve optimal definition of the overall face (either non-surgically with fillers or surgically with fat grafting), Cheekbone Augmentation is regularly combined with procedures that define and augment other facial features — especially Facial Contouring (also referred to as Nose, Chin, and Jawline Sculpting) — to create a polished, harmonious look for the entire face. Adjusting and enhancing these three important facial landmarks in tiny increments effectively provides beautiful definition and balances the overall facial structure.
