Mimic Muscles Information:
Smile lines are formed as a result of the movements of the muscles that pull the corners of the lips up and down. The line that reaches from the nose to the lips also becomes more visible as the tissue above it thickens with age, and as the tissues move down over the cheekbones and accumulate like a "sausage".
Since these zone lines are formed due to indirect effects as well as direct effects, they require indirect intervention. It should not be forgotten that excessive filling in sunken areas may cause loss of facial expressions and thickened tissues similar to the lion's face. The real gain can be achieved as a result of applications that create a pull towards the cheekbones.
Cheekbone application provides a significant improvement in smile lines in many applications. If necessary, supporting the cheekbone filler with more volume produces a more natural and permanent solution.
The cheekbone should be considered the most important starting point in the face lift procedure with filler. Highlighting the cheekbones corrects the shadow-brightness-shade formation in the picture, starting with the brightness. After this, it is time to fill the smile lines, that is, the depressions called "nasolabial folds". However, the most important thing that should not be forgotten is that applying an amount of filler that will make the upper lip look heavy and bulky may reduce the smile lines but spoil the natural appearance. If applied here, hyaluronic acid filler is used for minimal correction.
Combining the Mimicplasty-DRSG method with filler and bidirectional correction of Smile lines and Marionet lines increases the success rate. Mimicplasty-DRSG is applied with the principle of protecting the muscles that will eliminate the lines by using Botox and reducing the tone of the antagonist muscles. Especially when applied together with cheekbone suspension filler, it has a high potential to create an inverted pear appearance on the face, that is, a triangular appearance at the bottom.
