Restoring a “Baby Face” with Facial Fillers

Traditional facial procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery are known to address the signs of aging and restore a more rested, youthful appearance. In addition to surgical procedures, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman also provides non-surgical treatments including Botox® and facial fillers to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. In a recent New York Times article, the term “baby face” was coined by patients who are seeking the round, plump cheeks that associate with a younger faces. Facial fillers are typically injected into targeted areas of the face where wrinkles appear, but now physicians have begun injecting fillers into cheeks for a fuller, lifted result.

During consultation, Dr. Whiteman discusses treatment plans with each patient to address their concerns. Facial fillers such as Juvéderm® and Expression® are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in human skin. Fillers stimulate skin to produce more of its own collagen so treatments last longer, typically up to a year or two.

As one of the most prominent areas of the face, the cheeks may deflate and show excess skin as age and gravity takes its toll. These fillers re-plump areas where creases and furrows develop while also lifting folds. Facial fillers are a great non-surgical alternative to cheek implants or facelift surgery as anti-aging treatments. Many patients choose injectables as there is minimal downtime and no surgery, scars, or incisions required.

Restylane® and Juvéderm® are types of facial filling cosmetic injectables composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring compound within the body that diminishes with age. These injectables fill in deep lines and wrinkles as well as areas that have lost volume like the cheeks and lips, and it was even approved by the FDA for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21. Perlane® is similar to Restylane®, but contains larger hyaluronic acid particles to fill in deeper wrinkles. Both facial filling options are available with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, included for patient comfort (Restylane-L® and Perlane-L®).
