As we age, our cheeks begin to succumb to the forces of gravity and the skin begins to droop, making the skin beneath our eyes look aged and at the same time, deepens the creases along the upper part of the smile line. A cheek lift can significantly reduce wrinkles, sagging skin or a droopy appearance in the face and restore a more youthful appearance.
Am I a candidate for a cheek lift?
If you are in good overall health, do not smoke and wish to improve your appearance, you may be a candidate for a cheek lift procedure.
The cheek lift procedure takes approximately two and a half hours and is performed under general anesthesia. During a cheeklift procedure, Dr. Jejurikar repositions the cheek frame by pulling and securing it in an upward direction. Cheek fat is repositioned along with underlying fascia and muscle, creating more youthful eyes and softening the smile line. The incisions for the cheek lift are made beneath the lower eyelash line to minimize visibility.
Most patients have temporary difficulty puckering their upper lips. Swelling and bruising around the eyes may occur and will diminish in a week or two.
