Soft Tissue Sculpture Method: Soft tissue includes skin, fat and muscle. Reduce the volume of subcutaneous fat or masticatory muscles can improve the face shape. Methods as below:
- Masticatory muscle injection of botulinum
Botulinum can reduce the volume of masticatory muscles, very helpful to improve the jaw curve.
◆ Method: direct injection in the masticatory muscles
◆ Time: the first week of feeling bite strength reduction, the obvious effect appeared after a month, the effect lasted for six months (favor to bite hard food time will be shortened). Recommended injection once every 6 to 8 months .
◆ Effect: masticatory muscle hypertrophy effect is obvious, bite force reduction, can improve the night molar or migraine symptoms, no effect on the mature skeletal shape, (mature bones are not affected by botulinum injection, but after six months of bone surgery recovery period, the injection of botulinum can prevent bone regeneration) must be injected regularly to maintain the effect.
◆ Advantages: simple and safe treatment, no recovery period, eliminating the fear of surgery
◆ Disadvantages: the effect is often not as expected, the cost is not cheap and must be regular injection, poor economic efficiency
◆ Applicable: good skeleton condition, but people with masticatory muscle hypertrophy affect the jaw curve, after the bone sculpture, the prevention of bone regeneration, people with night molars or tension type migraine symptoms.
- Face fat plastic surgery
Fat has always played a very important role in the face, its quantity, health or not, deeply affect the aesthetic feeling. Fat is also an important structure that protects vital organs from the maintenance of young skin and supports elastic fullness is definitely not the general imagination of the rubbish. So, unless necessary, do not change it in any way.
2-1 Autologous fat transplantation: Many people have cheek depression troubles, because it looks haggard old, most people intuitively think of "make up fat", that the depression can be filled to improve, but sometimes got the disappointed result, because the face becomes larger. This is because there is no proper distinction between "true" and "false" cheek depression before surgery. This idea must be clarified first in order to choose the correct surgical method.
|True cheek depression||False cheek depression|
|There is no prominent problem for skeleton, simply created because of subcutaneous fat atrophy (too little fat or thinner to make the cheek depression), then you should choose fat transplant surgery.||Cheek depression is caused by prominent facial skeleton, mainly cheekbones and jaw angle. Although the fat transplant surgery can improve the depression, but the face becomes larger; choose facial bone sculpture surgery, can change the face shape, also can improve the cheek depression.|
◆ Method: extract the thigh or abdominal fat, after centrifugal screening, and then inject a good fat to fill deep under the face skin. Each site filled with 10 ~ 20cc.
◆ Time: part implanted fat will be decomposition and absorption, about 30 to 50% survived to become a stable support force. All need two to three months. Sometimes in order to get the desired outcome of the operation, the physician will deliberately implant more fat then after the absorption the left amount of fat just meet the needs, before that, surgery patient must tolerate the cheeks up the temporary sequelae, need for three to six months. Sometimes the fat will gather to form fibroids, will touch the lumps, to wait patiently and massage. Will gradually disappear, take more than six months.
◆ Effect: Successful surgery will make face look better, younger. Often need more than two operations to maintain good results. The results of surgery will change with the change of body fat and thin.
◆ Advantages: simple and safe surgical methods, cheap, less sequelae.
◆ Disadvantages: physicians are not easy to accurately control the number of implanted fat, often need a second operation, causing unnecessary distress. Facial lines change flat, little visual effect (less three-dimensional change ). Surgery results will change with the body fat and thin, persistent uncertainty.
◆ Apply: true depression, including: cheeks, temples, eyes, tears. Face other fill, including: the front jaw, chin, nose.
2-2 Facial liposuction surgery: Many people complain that the face is too big, want to face-lift, intuitive think that liposuction surgery can change face shape, but often only get disappointed. Because the face of the main culprit is the bones, just by removing the fat cannot get the satisfy results. Sometimes, in order to get better results, fat pumping too much, so the skin loss saturation, instead get the result of aging feeling. Before do facial liposuction, should determine whether the shape of face is good or bad with the skeleton, but also to avoid excessive fat, so as to avoid the occurrence of aging sequelae. Method:
Traditional: the face dedicated lipstick tube to extract the subcutaneous shallow fat, deep fat, too close to the nerve cannot extract.
Shock type: relatively new liposuction tools, you can extract more deep fat.
◆ Time: just finished surgery because of swelling cannot see the effect. Be patient for three to six months
◆ Effect: can improve the face shape, but the change is limited.
◆ Advantages: simple and safe method, people with full subcutaneous fat is very effective.
◆ Disadvantages: physicians are not easy to control the precise amount of extraction, and occasionally need second surgery can only improve the face shape, visual effects are not ideal, usually only as a result of adjuvant surgery, the result will change with the body fat and thin, persistent uncertainty.
