The aging process takes its toll on the entire face, especially the mid-face and cheek region. As we grow older, the skin and fatty tissues that drape over the cheekbones begin to droop or sag. Unfortunately, this can create an unattractive and tired appearance underneath the eyes, around the nose and mouth and into the jawline. To restore the sagging cheek tissues to their most youthful position and revitalize the face, a cheek lift may be recommended. A cheek lift, often referred to as a mid-face lift, can be performed with minimally invasive face and neck procedures that involve less pain and quicker recovery than a full, traditional facelift.
What is a Cheek Lift?
Dr. Harirchian uses advanced surgical techniques to address the upper cheeks, lower cheeks or both. Depending on the type and severity of your concerns, she can perform a cheek lift using the valued deep plane lifting technique or an endoscopic cheek lift method. An endoscopic approach is ideal for younger patients that simply want to accentuate their cheeks or those that do not have significant concerns with their lower face, jowls or neck. However, a deep plane lift should be used to effectively address the upper and lower cheeks as well as the neck. During a cheek lift, the cheek fat pads that have descended with age are delicately repositioned over the cheekbone to create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
