Cheek Augmentation with Cheek Implants and or Radiesse Injections.
The Cheeks can be augmented and their shape improved aesthetically by using Cheek Implants ( I prefer soft silastic ones…no screws or fixation sutures) or with various materials that are injected into the skin over the cheek area. Of the latter, I prefeer Radiesse because I have found it to highly predictable and effective in allowing me to shape the cheeks. I also use Radiesse to shape the chin and jawline.
A few days ago a patient came from Dubai and mentioned that I was referred in Dubai as “the guy who does radiesse to shape the face”. I found this flattering that I would be so regarded in a city that I have never visited. I felt compelled to mention that I like Radiesse because it works in my hands and accomplishes what I want to d aesthetically on the face…and that’s to make a male face more angular and ruggedly handsome while making a female face soft, feminine and youthful in appearance. I have no financial stock in the company that makes or markets radiesse…although they should at the very least thank mean for all the free advertising I do for their product…including an appearance on ABC’s “The View” where I had a Radiesse patient as well as my new “Celebrity Face Lift”….but that’s another story. Rdaiesse works and in my opinion works quite well but so does perlane and Botox and restylane and i endorse all of those products as well.
In my almost 20 years of performing plastic and cosmetic surgery here in beverly Hills and London, I have always strived to get the very best and most out of every plastic surgeical procedure: Face Lift, Breast Augmentation, Rhinoplasty, Blepharoplasty, Tummy Tuck, Lip Augmentation…whatever instead of accepting whatever limitations those procedures had to offer. The same can be said about the soft tissue fillers like radiesse, perlane and Even Botox. I embrace the ones that I believe work and I don’t use or endorse the ones I think don’t work or have unwanted complications….silicone, artecol just to mention two. This is my opinion and other plastic and cosmetic surgeons may have another opinion.
