Adding Volume to Aging Cheeks
As you age, many people lose definition in their facial features. To counter this effect, Dr. Gregory A. Buford has created Deep Cheek Volumization (DCV) procedure to restore youthful and full cheeks. A collagen or hyaluronic acid filler is used to plump up the cheeks from deep within the injection site. "In the past, Facial rejuvenation has primarily focused on the softening of lines and wrinkles. But by just addressing lines, we forgot the most important part of aging--loss of volume. By specifically replacing lost volume to the deep cheeks, nasolabial folds are lifted, cheeks are shaped, and a natural restoration is accomplished" says Dr. Buford in a press release this week. There is little recovery time needed for the DCV procedure. About four injections are used during the 15-30 minute procedure. Women can add more definition to existing cheekbones, or create the illusion of cheek bones with the injections. The DCV procedure is meant to rejuvenate the face in a way that looks natural for patients.
