Restore A Youthful Look By Concentrating On The Middle Of The Face
A Cheek Lift, or mid-face lift, is designed to restore the natural contour of your lower eyelids and cheeks. As you age, your facial fat pads may shrink and descend causing your cheeks to sag. Your eyes may look tired because of hollowing and puffiness.
A Cheek Lift can reposition those fat pad or Fat Augmentation may be done to replace the lost volume and help lift the cheek and fill the hollows. The result softens the nasolabial folds around the mouth, fills indentations in the upper cheek and hollows of the tear trough, and can even soften the jowls. This is a popular procedure, because it can provide a significant improvement in appearance with minimal to no incisions and a very natural refreshed look.
Are You A Candidate?
You can be a candidate for a Cheek Lift if you want to:
Lift sagging cheeks
Reduce hollowing under the eyes
Create a more youthful look
If you are considering a Cheek Lift, Dr. Elizabeth and our staff will go over the procedure in detail and do a thorough evaluation first to see if it’s the right choice for you. We’ll explain the potential outcomes and give you everything you need to make an informed decision.
How The Procedure Works
Depending on the patient and desired outcome, a cheek lift or cheek augmentation may be performed. This is done with minimal incisions or simple access points. The Cheek Lift or Augmentation may also be performed in conjunction with other procedures. The procedure takes place in our office surgical suites, and usually takes about an hour. Local anesthesia with relaxation or IV anesthesia may be used, depending upon the complexity of the surgery.
No bandages are required unless combined with other procedures. Recovery time varies, but you may not be able to work or go to school within the first week.
After the procedure, you should see a smoother transition between the lower eyelids and cheek, with lifting of the midface and softening of the folds around the mouth.
