Non-Surgical Cheek Lift
In a previous issue of The Oprah Magazine, Dr. Andrew Jacono discusses facial features such as the cheeks and how they are affected by aging.
As your skin and the soft tissue beneath it lose elasticity, your cheeks begin sagging. A thick hyaluronic acid filler, like Perlane or Voluma, can be injected over the cheekbones for some lift. A welcome side effect: When your cheeks are lifted, your nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth) become less pronounced, says New York City plastic surgeon Andrew Jacono, MD.
