Today we’re showing you a little bit of behind the scenes action from our segment with Channel 12 today regarding facial volume loss, as we age and as we quickly lose weight.
So we’re replacing that volume with fillers for a nice, contoured, youthful appearance.
There’s a new cosmetic procedure that alters a person’s cheek bones. As medical reporter Liz Bonus explains, it isn’t without risk.
Hey everybody. It is a newer trend in cosmetic procedures. But before you decide to have what’s called buccal fat removal, Facial Plastic Surgeons have a word of caution.
Buccal fat is a fat compartment in our lower cheek that we all have.
Facial Surgeon Jon Mendelsohn says to remove buccal fat, incisions are made inside your mouth, on both sides of your face, to remove the fat. It gives you kind of a kissy face look
if I kind of pull my cheeks in a little bit, you’ll see a depression in that area.
The procedure is not without risks.
There is one of the branches of our facial nerve, and that’s a nerve that controls our facial expression that could be injured during that fat removal.
So Mendelsohn says they try and enhance or boost the area around the buccal fat to give an improved look instead. Most commonly with facial fillers.
For Colleen, the goal was to improve the jowls.
These lines are a little bit deeper.
Nurse Practitioner Hope Merz says, since most of us lose face fat with weight loss or normal aging.
And so what we typically do is put a little bit of filler above that area to help re-contour the cheek and lift away from that shadow and fold that we can notice that bothers most patients.
Here’s Colleen’s before and afters, so you can see that gradual lift.
Now, those fillers range in cost from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. That buccal fat removal can fall in the same numbers.
When it comes to facial fillers, there are a lot of options out there, and it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Two popular options are Volux and Voluma, both made by the company Juvederm. While both of these fillers build volume and create lift, they have some important differences.
One of the main differences between Volux and Voluma is where they are injected. Voluma is FDA-approved for the chin and cheeks, while Volux is FDA-approved to treat the chin and jawline. This means that if you’re looking to sculpt and reshape your chin and jawline, Volux may be the better choice for you.
Another difference is the consistency of the fillers. Volux has more structure, cohesivity, and lift capacity than Voluma, making it a lot firmer. This firmness is what allows Volux to provide that chiseled jawline that many people are seeking. In fact, Volux is a slightly more cohesive and thicker formula than Voluma, which makes it mimic bone.
