The Outline of the Face

Often a man’s face can lack definition in the cheekbone and the jawbone areas. This situation can  create a reduction of incisiveness and expressivity; the lack of strength in cheekbone/jawbone makes way for wrinkles and creases.

The methods now used to augment the thickness in these areas are fillers that can be inserted in the soft tissue of the face to promote the growth of fibrous substances in sufficient quantity to fill in the crease caused by a wrinkle. These fillers can last several months and are not at all toxic.

A longer-lasting method is filling these areas with the patient’s own fatty cells, taken from the body where they are present in abundance. This procedure is called Lipostructure.

Implants can be used without visible scars to enhance a cheekbone, to define a jaw or correct a receding chin.
