Beverly Hills Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery “Tip of the Day” from Dr. Francis R Palmer, III Beverly Hills Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon.

Cheek, Cheeks and more Cheeks.

When you’re ready to look more attractive, where should you start? Think of three important words. Cheeks, Cheeks and yes, you guessed it Cheeks. My Palmer Beauty Principles and my What’s Your Number concepts state that the shape and size of your cheeks have the power to tell the world you are male, female, young, old, attractive or less so. The Cheeks account for a whopping 75% of what makes your face attractive. Do I have your attention yet?

So when patients come in and see me for consultation, I try to show them that the Cheeks may need improvement. If you still need convincing, look at a picture of Halle Berry who’s number is a 99 out of a perfect 100 or Jessica Alba who’s number is a perfect 100…both of these beautiful women have perfectly shaped cheeks.

Ok, so now you’re a believer. So, how do you get those beautiful Cheeks athat are so important to making you attractive?

1. Cheek Implants for Cheek Augmentation…for people with relatively flat Cheeks. Relatively simple procedure where soft silicone implants are placed on top of your existing Cheek Bone through a small incision placed inside your mouth. Recovery about 1 week. Lasts forever.

2. Soft tissue fillers. I like Radiesse for this. The material lats 1-3 years and can be placed as a series of injections which can be done as an office visit. Typically gives 50-70% of the augmentation that Cheek Implants would accomplish. Can be re-done anytime for more augmentation but DOES REQUIRE good aesthetic sense as you are literally molding the new shape of the cheeks. You’ll look very odd if this is put in the wrong place or makes your Cheeks the wrong shape. I do not like Fat…it’s not live tissue…it’s not reliable…it’s not a good choice in my opinion.

3. Learn makeup tips that can b eused to give the illusion of fuller, more defined cheeks. Obviously men are out of luck with this one.
