Candidates for a Cheek Lift
The best candidates for a cheek lift are women and men who have lost considerable cheek volume and, as a result, are experiencing facial sagging. A cheek lift addresses issues associated with sagging, which helps smooth out the overall facial appearance. A cheek lift can also be combined with an eyelid lift procedure and/or dermal fillers for enhanced results.
The cheek lift is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will make a small incision just below your lower eyelashes. This incision allows the plastic surgeon to access the lax muscles that contribute to facial sagging. Excess skin is removed from the lower lid and upper cheek areas, while ligaments are repositioned and tightened to improve results. Your plastic surgeon may also reposition or add fat to key facial areas to create youthful contours.
The cheek lift procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery and uses general anesthesia. Recovery can vary from patient to patient; however, you can expect to return to your normal activities within 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss what to expect in terms of pain management during recovery.
