There are many studies that show that people define beauty based on symmetry, proportions, and angles. Based on these premises and his artistic eye, Dr. Dennis Hurwitz offers his patients cosmetic procedures to produce a more attractive contour to the face and body. At his plastic surgery practice, cheek augmentation is one such procedure that can greatly improve the contour of a patient’s face by adding volume to the cheeks. This surgery is well-suited for either patients who have lost volume in the cheeks as a result of aging or for those who do not naturally possess strong cheek bones.
Many patients complain that weak cheek bones give the face a tired, gaunt appearance. The lack of strong cheek bones can also create a lack of definition in one’s facial features. Dr. Hurwitz can address these concerns and create more prominent, attractive cheeks for his Pittsburgh patients with cheek augmentation. There are actually a number of techniques that can be used in order to create this volume. All options can be discussed with Dr. Hurwitz so that the best choice for each individual patient can be determined. One of the first decisions to be made will be:
If a patient chooses to receive cheek implants, there are additional technique decisions to consider, including:
The number of decisions and choices regarding cheek augmentation techniques can seem overwhelming, but Dr. Hurwitz is happy to explain all of the options and help patients choose those options best suited to their unique situation.
Many patients who are undergoing cheek augmentation choose to further enhance the facial features through additional cosmetic procedures. Some of the procedures that can further rejuvenate the face include eyelid surgery, brow lift, and facelift.
Whichever technique is chosen for cheek augmentation, Dr. Hurwitz can create the attractive proportion and contour that patients want for the face.
