The best plastic surgeons understand the ogee curve as well as an artist. Just as an artist studies his subject, the doctor will study the patient's face to understand the best way to perform any facial augmentation procedure.
But, what is the ogee curve?
The ogee curve is the central facial triangle or the double soft-S curves that are seen on the youthful face from an oblique angle. There is fullness in the lateral brow that softly curves where the upper and lower eyelids meet, then softly curves outward on the upper cheek to again curve inward just above the mouth. As we age the natural curve collapses as the face loses the volume found in youth.
Placing an ogee curve in people’s faces make older people look younger and younger faces more beautiful.
In recent years, dermal fillers have provided cosmetic practitioners with the tools necessary to contour facial features non-surgically and cost-effectively. Hyaluronic acid fillers can add volume in an office environment with little to no downtime. Juvederm Voluma is an excellent filler for the midface to achieve a youthful appearance. Belotero corrects superficial lines as well as defines the lips. Radiesse is also an excellent choice to increase volume in the face.
Our physicians have an excellent reputation for helping each patient choose the most effective treatment plan to restore a youthful appearance by using the ogee curve philosophy. Call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
