Cheek Lift Surgery
Well-defined cheeks are an element of beauty and impact the youthfulness of the face. Aging can affect the contours of the cheeks, as they can appear small, saggy or droopy. With advancing age, the cheeks descend and lose volume. At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. John Anastasatos offers cheek lift surgery and treatments to reshape the cheeks, enhancing and lifting them with various methods.
When the cheeks lose volume or the fatty cheek pads and midface skin or tissue sags, it changes the face. It is not just the cheeks that are affected, but the drop of the cheek pads or loss of cheek volume can also create deeper hollows or bags under the eyes. The nasolabial folds, or smile lines, may be deepened in the midface. A cheek lift or augmentation restores the youthful contours of the cheek to revive the midface and eye area. This can include lifting the cheek fat pads back to a more youthful position and augmentation with cheek implants, fat or fillers.
The newest innovation in cheek augmentation is the addition of stem cells. Stem cells can be isolated from fat tissue or bone marrow and added with a fat transfer during an augmentation. It is believed that the addition of stem cells may offer increased longevity to the cheek augmentation. The use of stem cells in the face and the cheeks may have some anti-aging properties as well.
Options for Cheek Augmentation
Cheek augmentation can also be done at the same time as a midface lift or a facelift. When done in conjunction with a facelift, the result is more harmonious. Cheek lift surgery can also be performed on its own or with a lower eyelid lift to address bags or hollows under the eyes. For subtle cheek drooping or loss of volume, non-surgical options are available. We offer cheek lifts and augmentation, as well as the following treatments:
If your cheeks seem hollow or drooping, a cheek lift can restore the youthful volume and contours to your face. To learn more about cheek lift surgery or augmentation, contact us at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills to schedule a cheek consultation with Dr. Anastasatos.
