Cheek Lift

If you notice that your lower eyelids are beginning to droop and sag, perhaps your cheeks are to blame. Even as early as our 30s, gravity and the aging process affect the midface, causing the skin and tissue to fall. This leads to loss of fullness and definition in the cheeks, as well as stretching of the lower eyelid, resulting in sagging and bags under the eyes. A cheek lift, also known as a mid-facelift, is a way to correct these aging symptoms, restoring fullness to the cheekbones and refreshing the area under the eyes for a rejuvenated appearance.

Dr. Saad is an expert in cheek augmentation, publishing articles about various techniques for creating natural fullness in the midface. His cheek lift procedures are always tailored to the precise needs and facial proportions of his patients to produce results that are both natural and beautiful. This specialized procedure should be handled by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Saad to ensure that your surgery is safe and the outcome meets your expectations.

Are You a Candidate?

Dr. Saad will consider you to be a good candidate for a cheek lift if you are in good health, do not smoke, and have one or more of the following concerns:

  • Loss of volume or definition in the cheekbones
  • Displacement of fat and tissue in the midface
  • Loose skin causing facial wrinkles and creases
  • Hollowing underneath the eyes, giving you a weary appearance
  • Desire to reverse signs of aging and increase your self-confidence

Dr. Saad will meet with you at your initial consultation to discuss your concerns and expectations for your surgery. He will also take a medical history and evaluate your current state of health to determine whether a cheek lift will be a safe and effective choice for you.

Cheek Lift Options

Dr. Saad uses a variety of techniques for his cheek lift procedures to ensure that his patients get the precise outcome they want:

Open Cheek Lift

The traditional cheek lift involves incisions above the ear, inside the hairline. This allows Dr. Saad to remove excess skin in addition to repositioning the fat and tissue underneath. The open approach is generally recommended for patients in need of more correction because of more advanced signs of aging.

Endoscopic Cheek Lift

Endoscopic procedures use a special camera and tools for a less invasive surgery than traditional techniques offer. Incisions are just long enough to allow for the insertion of the camera and tools to reposition tissue and create a more youthful profile. The endoscopic approach does not allow for the removal of loose skin, so Dr. Saad usually reserves this technique for younger patients in need of more subtle correction.

Fat Transfer

When additional augmentation is needed for the cheeks, Dr. Saad can add fat transfer to the procedure to create the fullness necessary to produce the best possible results. This procedure involves removal of unwanted fat from one area of the body, which is then injected into the midface in a similar fashion to a dermal filler. However, fat transfer has the distinct benefit of producing natural, long-lasting results.

About Your Surgery

Endoscopic cheek lifts are usually performed using local anesthesia with sedation. Traditional cheek lifts may be done using either local or general anesthesia. The duration of the procedure depends on the technique used and whether other procedures are performed during surgery. Dr. Saad often combines a cheek lift with eyelid surgery, a brow lift or a facelift to produce more dramatic results for his patients.

The Recovery Process

Recovery from a cheek lift will also depend on the technique used for your procedure. Patients undergoing endoscopic cheek lifts are often back to regular activities within 5-7 days, while open cheek lifts can take 1-2 weeks before you are ready to get back into action. Bruising and swelling are common with both techniques, and will subside within a matter of days to weeks. Once the side effects are gone, your results will be fully apparent and last for a number of years.

Give your midface a boost by reversing those signs of aging with a cheek lift customized just for you. To learn more about this surgery, schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Saad.
