Perinasal implants for sunken cheeks and nasolabial folds

One overlooked solution to sunken cheeks and nasolabial folds are perinasal implants (Dr Young specializes only in the face and neck and is located in Bellevue Washington) that you can insert next to the nose.  A lot of what creates nasolabial folds is the volume loss in the cheek next to the nose.  This can be a natural occurence for people or can result from aging.  A perinasal implant are most commonly silicone and medpor.  They can be inserted from the nose along the floor or within the mouth through really small incisions. The other to do this is through fat injections or the YoungVolumizer which I developed.  All options serve to plump up the perinasal area to decrease the nasolabial fold deep characteristic.  For the nasolabial folds you may also need some superficial volumization through fillers.  The perinasal implant can also volumize this area to give the medial cheek more prominence.  This tends to highlight the central face where you want the most attention.
