Restylane Contour Long Island

Restylane Contour

Restylane contour is the newest filler for cheek augmentation.  Thus, Contour is becoming a primary cheek filler for Long Island patients.  The reason for volume loss and sagging in the cheek is from a decrease in the deep fat pad. Moreover, the loss of deep fat causes the outer fat pad to sink. Therefore, the aged appearance of a deflated cheek is due to this fat pad reduction.

Contour replenishes that deep fat pad resulting is a full, plump cheek.
