Do Your Cheeks Need a Lift?

Published on: July 25, 2015

Did you know your cheeks are often one of the first areas of your face to cause signs of aging? Those fatty bulges on your face that were pinched when you were a kid can beginning to lose their fatty composition and sag over time. Most people do not attribute their cheeks to their tired, baggy eyes or increased nasolabial fold between the cheek and nose, but it is the drop in tissue that often causes both. A cheek lift can have a dramatic effect on the mid-face region, giving you back a more youthful, energetic appearance.

Cheek Lift Surgery

To undo the effects of gravity and fat loss in the cheek region, a cheek lift or endoscopic midface lift can be performed through surgery by an experienced facial plastic surgeon. This procedure is less invasive than a complete face lift, focusing on the cheek area or molar fat pad. During the procedure, the cheek is lifted and repositioned higher on the face, usually above the cheek bone.

The results of a cheek lift can reverse the tired, sad appearance many people get as they age. The lifted cheek can diminish the bags under the eyes and reduce the nasolabial fold that is associated with an older face. Many people choose to combine this surgery with other cosmetic procedures such as an eyelift or fat transfer to the cheek region.

If you have noticed that your cheeks have begun to droop with age, making you look older and tired, a cheek lift surgery may be the solution you have been looking for. Make an appointment with a local facial plastic surgeon to learn more about this procedure and find out if it is the right option to give you a more youthful, energetic appearance.
