If your cheeks have suffered the effects of gravity and have started to look flat and sunken, a cheek lift may be helpful for you. A cheek lift improves facial contours and gives the face a more youthful appearance. If you’re wondering – am I a good candidate for a cheek lift, its best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation.
Cheek Lift surgery
A cheek lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to enhance the cheeks, and is often included as part of facelift surgery. It addresses the portion of the face below the eyelid along with the area that extends down to the side of the mouth. Lifting the cheek region restores the youthful fullness to the cheeks, as it lifts the cheeks upward and outward, and also softens marionette lines(lines at the sides of the mouth).
The incision for cheek lift surgery is typically made just under the lower lashes, which is the same area in which the incision is made for lower eyelid surgery.
Am I a good candidate for a cheek lift?
If you have volume loss in the cheeks as well as sagging skin in the midface, you may be a good candidate for a cheek lift.Loss of volume in the cheeks gives the midface and the area below the cheeks a sunken appearance, but a cheek lift will reposition sagging cheek tissue so as to improve facial contours.It also elevates the cheeks upward and outward.
