If you are consistently visiting the plastic surgeon for filler injections and still struggling with loss of facial volume, wrinkles, and sagging skin, it may be time to consider plastic surgery as an alternative to non-surgical aesthetic care. For some patients, however, there is a stigma toward surgery due to longer downtimes and higher procedural risks. By scheduling a consultation with Dr. Peter Kay at Perfection Plastic Surgery & Skin Care, you can rest assured that any surgery performed will follow the highest safety standards to mitigate risks.
In addition, Dr. Kay can offer a revolutionary new surgical procedure that has several distinct advantages over the traditional face or brow lift. Cheek lift surgery is a unique cosmetic procedure that can be performed right here in our office, rather than at the hospital.
Cheek Lift Surgery – Unique Cosmetic Surgery
Cheek lift surgery is an outpatient surgery performed in our practice rather than the surgical center at the hospital. Therefore, it is an affordable alternative to other facial plastic surgeries. In addition, it has very little downtime and requires no general anesthesia, so there are fewer surgical risks to consider. Through a cheek lift, you can restore volume in the cheek bones and tighten the skin on the face to create a naturally youthful appearance.
A cheek lift reduces sagging skin and also helps smooth the nasolabial folds (smile lines) around the mouth area. Repositioning the soft tissue of the cheek to a higher position during the procedure also helps lessen the hollowness below the lower eyelid. The surgery offers a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Cheek lift surgery is a less invasive procedure compared to a traditional facelift. Many surgeons perform the procedure under local anesthesia. The results are longer-lasting compared to the results of injectable fillers.
Cheek lift is generally performed along with other facial plastic surgeries, like eyelid surgery or a brow lift, to achieve a full facial rejuvenation. To combat the aging process, it is also often combined with a cheek augmentation procedure or facial fat transfer to replace the lost volume on the face.
Who is a good candidate for the cheek lift procedure?
Anyone who is considering face lift surgery may consider a cheek lift as a potential alternative. Dr. Kay can help you decide which procedure is best for your needs during your personalized plastic surgery consultation. Ideal candidates for surgery will be in generally good health and avoid both smoking and drinking prior to surgery and through the recovery process. The cheek lift is appropriate for men or women looking to reverse common effects of aging. It is also ideal for individuals who have stopped seeing results from injectable facial fillers.
