WHAT IS A CHEEK LIFT?
A Cheek Lift is a surgical option for improving the appearance of wrinkles and sagging in the mid-face. The procedure is similar to a Mini Facelift but with the intention of lifting the cheeks to re-volumize the upper cheek area, soften nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth and, depending on the type of cheek lift done, replenish volume to the mid-cheek and under-eyes. This procedure can be done alone or with other surgical and non-surgical treatments, dependent upon each individual’s goal.
HOW IS THE CHEEK LIFT DONE?
The procedure is done at our office in our surgical suite under local anesthesia and oral sedation. A surgical cheek lift can be performed by placement of a mid-face fixation device called Endotine, surgical excision of tissue within the temporal hairline and/or surgical excision of tissue and altering of muscle from the under-eye area. The method chosen is dependent upon the patient’s goals and facial anatomy. Dr. Rubbani utilizes the same delicate detail and precision to close the incision as she does in her ocular surgeries to minimize noticeable scarring. We also provide our patients with detailed information for minimizing downtime with post-care guidance and pre-surgical supplementation and care.
Although our patients are expected to feel great within a day or 2 of surgery, plan on taking it easy for the first week. Post-care and downtime may vary based on other procedures done with the Cheek Lift. Most patients return to work and most normal activities with 10 days.
WHAT OTHER PROCEDURES ARE DONE WITH A CHEEK LIFT?
