how is my ogee?

As we age, we lose a very important part of our facial anatomy… our cheek fat!

You may wonder, why do I need fat cheeks? I want a slim face!

No no, it’s not the same. Of course we do not want to look like chipmunks, which is due to excess deep buccal fat. However, losing the superficial malar fat as we age leads to hollowing of the cheeks, a gaunt look, and prominent nasolabial folds due to excess lax skin.

voluminous cheeks

This part of aging is reversible with the help of cheek fillers, which is strategically placed to restore the malar fat pad and augments your ogee line instantly.

Hyaluronic acid is the best choice of filler for this purpose. It gives instant gratification and is reversible in the event of lumps or misplaced filler. In such a superficial location, lumpiness from semi-permanent or permanent fillers is distressing and too difficult to reverse.

So consult your aesthetic doctor today, if you may need to turn up the volume on the apples of your cheeks! 🙂

  1. The cheeks can be plumped by using fillers but the new and certainly better procedure is fat transfer to the cheeks. You remove fat from an unwanted area and place it in an area that needs it. The new water assisted liposuction machine comes with a sterile canister that collects the fat and you can then place it anywhere on the body and 78% of the fat will take and be there permanently, so a little more expensive first but in the long run cheaper. One of the 2 biggest requests is for fat transfer to the breasts only 1 cup size increase and to the bottom also.

  2. The malar fat pad is a discrete, triangular shaped area of thickened subcutaneous fat, based at the nasolabial fold with its apex at the malar eminence in the youthful face. It is attached to the overlying skin and is supported by multiple fibrous septae that extend from the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and into the dermis. Loss of skin elasticity and weakening of these septae, as well as volume loss within the deep medial cheek fat, 6 lead to a downward and forward descent of the skin and malar fat pad until it bulges against the fixed nasolabial fold.
