Attractive cheekbones are an important element of facial beauty. Well-defined cheeks create balance, improve the facial profile, and are a symbol of youth. Some men and women are frustrated because their cheeks have never been well-contoured, while many others have lost facial volume with age and would like to restore fullness for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Alharkan’s specializes in cheek augmentation at his San Francisco practice using facial fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, RADIESSE®, JUVÉDERM®, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®.
Defined cheekbones can make a man look healthy and fit. Good bone structure supports the tissue and muscle underlying the cheeks, helping to maintain the face’s youthful quality. Dr. Alharkan may treat bags or dark circles under the eyes along with the cheeks to ensure a seamless, fresh appearance.
We know research supports the universal appeal of high cheekbones as an important feature of an attractive face. Youthful volume in the midface also signals vitality, health, and attractiveness. Age, however, inevitably saps the volume from our face and cheeks begin to flatten and sag. The skin on the cheeks can start to droop and form jowls and nasolabial folds— the grooves that run from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. Sagging cheeks can also contribute to hollows and shadows beneath the eyes.
