Cheek augmentation

Joanna Dong, Madeleine Gantz, Gary Goldenberg
Many dermal fillers are available for various cosmetic rejuvenation purposes including but not limited to treatment of facial rhytides, nasolabial folds (NLFs), facial volume deficits, and lipoatrophy; facial contouring; and lip and/or cheek augmentation. To update clinicians on best practices, we review the efficacy and safety data on the most recently approved dermal fillers.

BACKGROUND: Recent anatomical findings have suggested that facial fat distribution is complex and changes with age. Here, we developed a grafting technique based on the physiological distribution and volume changes of facial fat compartments to achieve a youthful and natural-looking face. METHODS: Forty cadaveric hemifaces were used for the dissection of fat compartments and neurovascular structures in the mid-face area. Seventy-eight patients were treated for cheek atrophy using our targeted restoration of mid-face fat compartment volume...

Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) has been extensively used for facial soft tissue augmentation procedures, and is regarded as safe and reliable and suitable as a permanent implant. This implant is generally used in the lower third of the face for lips filling, nasal augmentation, nasolabial folds and chin augmentation, and rarely for congenital or acquired depressed deformities of the face. The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of ePTFE in congenital or acquired depressed deformities of the face...

Craniofacial microsomia (CFM) is a congenital anomaly with a variable phenotype. The most prominent feature of CFM is a predominantly unilateral hypoplasia of the mandible, leading to facial asymmetry. Even after correction of the midline, there is often a remaining hard- and soft-tissue deficiency over the body of the mandible and cheek on the affected side. This clinical report describes the skeletal augmentation of the mandible with a patient-specific implant to treat residual facial asymmetry in two female patients with unilateral CFM...

Background. Facial aging is a dynamic process involving both soft tissue and bony structures. Skin atrophy, with loss of tone, elasticity, and distribution of facial fat, coupled with gravity and muscle activity, leads to wrinkling and folds. Purpose. The aim of the study was to evaluate microporous tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and autologous platelet gel (APG) mix in mice for oral and maxillofacial soft tissue augmentation. The hypothesis was that β-TCP added with APG was able to increase the biostimulating effect on fibroblasts and quicken resorption...

BACKGROUND: Narrow and chubby pretarsal fullness is a characteristic of attractiveness and youthfulness, and pretarsal augmentation has gained popularity in Asia. Conventional lower blepharoplasty has focused on correcting the aged appearance of the lower eyelids by repositioning fat and removing excess skin. However, this technique can create flat lower eyelids and provide an indication that cosmetic surgery was performed. Therefore, our pretarsal augmented lower blepharoplasty technique focuses on restoring pretarsal fullness and creating a three-dimensional lower eyelid-cheek complex...

BACKGROUND: The platelets used in oral, maxillofacial, and plastic surgery are generally grouped as concentrated platelet-rich plasma. The general principle of production consists of a centrifugation, making it possible to eliminate red blood cells, then acellular plasma, to preserve only the concentrated platelets. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was that micro porous tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) mixed with autologous platelet-derived growth factors could be an alternative to fat and hyaluronic acid which are widely used for oral and maxillofacial soft tissue augmentation...

BACKGROUND: Given the widespread use of facial fillers and recent identification of distinct facial fat compartments, a better understanding of three-dimensional surface changes in response to volume augmentation is needed. Advances in three-dimensional imaging technology now afford an opportunity to elucidate these morphologic changes for the first time. METHODS: A cadaver study was undertaken in which volumization of the deep medial cheek compartment was performed at intervals up to 4 cc (n = 4)...

Blepharoplasty remains one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed today. Its popularity stems partly from the ability to consistently make significant improvements in facial aesthetics with a relatively short operation that carries an acceptable risk profile. In this article, the authors attempt to simplify the approach to both upper and lower lid blepharoplasty and provide an algorithm based on the individual findings for any given patient. The recent trend with both upper and lower lid blepharoplasty has been toward greater volume preservation and at times volume augmentation...

BACKGROUND: Contemporary orthognathic surgery contemplates three-dimensional facial soft-tissue harmonization as one of the basic pillars in treatment planning. In particular, prominent malar regions are regarded as a sign of beauty and youth by Western societies. The aim of this article was to perform a subjective and objective three-dimensional evaluation of the pedicled buccal fat pad technique for malar augmentation in the context of orthognathic surgery. METHODS: Six consecutive patients with underlying dentofacial anomalies and bilateral malar hypoplasia were managed with simultaneous orthognathic surgery and pedicled buccal fat pad malar augmentation...

BACKGROUND: Although the use of filling agents for soft-tissue augmentation has increased worldwide, most consensus statements do not distinguish between ethnic populations. There are, however, significant differences between Caucasian and Asian faces, reflecting not only cultural disparities, but also distinctive treatment goals. Unlike aesthetic patients in the West, who usually seek to improve the signs of aging, Asian patients are younger and request a broader range of indications...

The identification of specific fat compartments of the face has greatly improved the plastic surgeon's approach to facial rejuvenation. These superficial and deep compartments are discretely partitioned into multiple independent units by fascial barriers and undergo age-dependant volumetric changes. This knowledge has created a topographical map allowing for the direct and precise augmentation of those compartments that are deflated preferentially. These include the deep medial cheek, nasolabial, superficial middle, and lateral cheek compartments...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate intraoral complications of buccal mucosa grafts harvested from one cheek, and used in augmentation urethroplasty. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-one patients with anterior urethral strictures were included in our study. In twelve patients, dorsal onlay, in five patients ventral onlay and in four patients lateral onlay procedures were applied. Average length of buccal mucosa graft from one cheek was 5.2 cm (3-8 cm). In all graft harvesting patients, bleeding in graft side, swelling, pain intensity of oral or perineal area, analgesic use, transition time to normal diet, slurred speech, loss of sensation, and patients' opinions about oral mucosa regrafting using this technique were evaluated using nine-item questionnaire forms...

Many East Asians experience lower eyelid bulging and discoloration, and this is seen even in young individuals. The condition is caused by an undergrowth of the maxilla and not by aging. In this condition, the orbit appears small and the infraorbital rim is hypoplastic. This inevitably causes a depressed, tired, and sad appearance. Here, the authors present techniques of volume augmentation in the lower eyelid and cheek areas to rejuvenate the midface in Asians.

UNLABELLED: The area of the nose immediately medial to the nasofacial groove is a common site for relatively small but penetrating basal cell carcinomas (BCCs). Although larger lesions may necessitate formal subunit reconstruction, smaller lesions pose a considerable dilemma. Full-thickness skin grafts (FTSGs) often result in an unsightly contour defect. Local flap options exist, but they frequently violate subunit boundaries or anatomical landmarks. In particular, the single-stage nasolabial transposition flap is particularly prone to blunting of the nasofacial angle and fullness or pin-cushioning of the flap with concomitant loss of facial symmetry...

Facial flushing in rosacea is often induced by trigger events. However, trigger causation mechanisms are currently unclear. This study tested the central hypothesis that rosacea causes sympathetic and axon reflex-mediated alterations resulting in trigger-induced symptomatology. Twenty rosacea patients and age/sex-matched controls participated in one or a combination of symptom triggering stressors. In protocol 1, forehead skin sympathetic nerve activity (SSNA; supraorbital microneurography) was measured during sympathoexcitatory mental (2-min serial subtraction of novel numbers) and physical (2-min isometric handgrip) stress...

BACKGROUND: Fat grafting can be used to improve the results of face lifting. The extent to which plastic surgeons use fat grafting in their face-lift practices is unknown. The goals of this study were to understand the current use of fat grafting during facial rejuvenation surgery and identify the most common techniques used. METHODS: A 28-item questionnaire was formulated for distribution to a randomized cohort of American Society of Plastic Surgeons members. Data were collected and statistically analyzed using Pearson chi-square and Fisher's exact tests...

BACKGROUND: Facial aging is a complicated process that includes volume loss and soft tissue descent. This study provides quantitative 3-dimensional (3D) data on the long-term effect of vertical vector deep-plane rhytidectomy on restoring volume to the midface. OBJECTIVE: To determine if primary vertical vector deep-plane rhytidectomy resulted in long-term volume change in the midface. METHODS: We performed a prospective study on patients undergoing primary vertical vector deep-plane rhytidectomy to quantitate 3D volume changes in the midface...
