Have you been dreaming of that fairytale makeover? Well, you’re not alone. The newest trend in plastic surgery inspiration may not be what you expect. Since the release of Disney’s “Maleficent,” the bewitching cheekbones of the black-robed title character, played by Angelina Jolie, have cast a spell over many women wishing to highlight their own facial contours.
Jolie’s already dramatic facial features are given an extra boost with movie magic to create the soaring cheekbones you see on screen. That hasn’t stopped plastic surgeons from putting their skills to work to achieve the results that their clients desire.
While facial reconstructive surgery could obviously accomplish more drastic results, even minimally invasive procedures like injectable facial fillers can help produce those wicked cheeks.
Facial fillers are an increasingly popular option for cosmetic plastic surgery. Sometimes compared to a liquid facelift, they can add shape and contour to the targeted area, usually the lips or cheeks. Newer formulas are being introduced to the market, which can provide even more effective, longer-lasting results.
With these types of fillers, plastic surgeons can add lift and highlight the sweep of the cheekbone, accentuating it to provide that striking “Maleficent” look. The procedure is relatively simple and quick, and requires little downtime for the patient.
“Maleficent” may not be the first picture that comes to mind when choosing a model for your new look, but it’s definitely true that those cheekbones deserve a second glance.
