Cheek Lift

Prominent cheekbones give the face a youthful, angular appearance that is attractive and alluring. When drooping facial tissues sag due to aging, the cheeks lose their definition. A cheek lift, sometimes called a mid facelift, repositions the facial tissues over the cheekbones to restore shapely cheeks and youthful facial contours.

Achieved With a Cheek Lift

A cheek lift raises sagging cheek tissue to restore a youthful face shape.

As we age, the cheek tissues sag from the cheekbones and cause our cheeks to become less prominent. This creates a hollow look around the eyes and lines around the nose and mouth. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Diamond performs cheek lift surgery to reposition the soft tissues over the cheekbones, eliminate lines, and restore a youthful appearance.

A cheek lift repositions the soft tissues over the cheekbones to restore shapely cheeks.

As the soft tissues of the face sag over time, the cheeks become less shapely. The cheek tissues droop until they eventually sink into the lower face, causing jowls. Our renowned facial surgeon, Dr. Jason Diamond, restores prominent, shapely cheeks by lifting the tissues back to their youthful position and reestablishing defined facial contours.

A cheek lift eliminates the skin folds between the nose and cheeks to soften lines and smooth the facial skin.

Lost cheek definition is not the only downside of sagging facial tissues. The area between the nose and cheeks develops folds of skin, creating prominent nasolabial folds. With a cheek lift, also known as a mid facelift, Dr. Jason B. Diamond restores the balance of these tissues and softens the skin folds to smooth the facial skin.

Addressing Any Concerns You May Have

Because Dr. Diamond’s cheek lift procedure is performed endoscopically, it requires only a few small incisions and has less bleeding and swelling afterward. The recovery is quicker than many other facial procedures and has a lower risk of complications. Patients can usually return to normal social activities within two weeks or sooner.

Dr. Diamond has substantial experience as a renowned facial plastic surgeon. He performs cheek lift surgery endoscopically, which means that the incisions are tiny and hidden in places such as behind the hairline or ears. These incisions do not produce visible scarring.

Cheek lift surgery is a rewarding and rejuvenating procedure that improves the appearance of the cheeks and mid face. As a leading world expert in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Diamond’s expertise is invaluable. The cost of your treatment will depend on his surgeon’s fees, your anatomical needs, the cost of anesthesia, facility fees, and other factors. These will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation. Patients who undergo facial surgery with Dr. Jason Diamond attest that the results are more than worth the cost.

Since the cheek lift procedure is performed endoscopically without cutting into the muscle, there is minimal pain after this procedure. Anesthesia prevents pain during the operation, and medications may be taken as needed to reduce discomfort during recovery.
