As we age, collagen production slows and our cheeks lose volume. This can cause a tired or droopy appearance underneath the eyes. The collagen loss may also cause sagging of the jaw line as well as more prominent nasolabial folds.
Cheek Lift Surgical Procedure
Cheek Lifts are often done in conjunction with a facelift or lower eyelid surgery. It improves the volume in the cheek by repositioning the fat pad over the cheek bone. The procedure also helps restore the contour of the corner of the mouth and erases nasolabial folds.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Many of our patients return to normal activity in about one to two weeks and full activity in four to six weeks.
Non-Surgical Cheek Lift
A Non-Surgical Cheek Lift may be indicated for patients with mild aging and wrinkles. This involves using a filler to retain volume to give a rejuvenated and youthful look.
