I feel my face is losing definition with my age. How can I get my cheekbones and jaw line back?
Not everyone is born with perfect cheekbones.
Tiny electric pulses, barely felt, stimulate blood flow in the muscles, both relaxing and toning, to rebuild facial scaffolding and tighten skin. I couldn’t see the point of microcurrents until I started to see my own face “flattening,” where facial fat and muscles atrophy with age.
The cheekbone is one of the three facial bones that define your face’s outline. The cheekbone, or part of your face, is shaped like a triangle from inside your head. Many people are opting for cheek fillers these days, but it is important to understand their function and benefits before you make any decision about having them done.
The cheek bone (or zygma) is a part of your skull that is formed by the junction between your temporal bone and the upper face parietal bone.
The nose is the part of your face that runs from the top of your nose to the corners of your mouth, and the middle of your cheekbones are connected by a line called the maxilla – or upper part of the cheekbone.
This area is visible when you speak or smile. It is used to identify features of the face, such as the width and shape of your eyes, eyebrows, and colour. In some cases, people may have cheek fractures or uneven cheeks from birth, in which case you can get them surgically corrected, or just leave them uneven as they are.
If you have a cheek fracture, you will likely need surgery to fix it – this is one of the most important things you can do if you are having problems with your cheekbones or other parts of your face.
If you are bitten on the cheek by a dog or cat, it is important to be aware of signs and symptoms such as bleeding, swelling, nerve damage, or changes in bite position. Cheek fractures can usually be repaired quickly and are often very easy to fix, but they can lead to permanent damage if left untreated.
These should be discussed with your surgeon at your initial visit before you get the operation. Your doctor will also talk to you about all the pros and cons of the surgery as well as possible risks associated with it.
