Cheek Lift Surgery | Scottsdale, AZ
Different Cheek Lift Techniques
CHEEK LIFT WITH INJECTABLE FILLER
This great non-surgical option can offer you nice results. Dr. Scottsdale® offers different types of filler that will affect how long your results will last (1 to 5 years). The fillers are injected under the skin to add volume and smoothen wrinkles. There are no scars and no incisions! Depending on how much volume and correction you need, multiple syringes can be required through multiple sessions. Fillers are a good alternative, but the results produced are not as dramatic as with surgery, nor will they last as long. In addition, if the patient is concerned with loose and sagging skin, filler treatment is not ideal.
FAT TRANSFER TO THE CHEEKS
This solution offers the same results as filler but the fat transfer is permanent. This treatment will correct your cheeks and mid-face by adding volume and smoother wrinkles. The fat is harvested from the patient’s own body via Vaser Liposuction and transferred back to the cheeks. The fat is processed via a special technique to ensure the results will be smooth and natural.
Cheek augmentation via implant is recommended for those who do not have enough tissue underneath the cheeks to achieve better proportional facial features. The silicone implant is placed under the skin via small hidden incisions to add volume. The surgery is performed under IV or deep sedation in our Scottsdale, AZ surgical office.
ENDOSCOPY CHEEK LIFT SURGERY
Endoscopy is a popular method used to reposition sagging cheeks. Small incisions, less than an inch long, are placed near the ear or hairline. These incisions allow Dr. Scottsdale® to insert and utilize a tiny camera positioned at the end of a small tube. Once the inside of the cheek area is visible, Dr. Scottsdale® performs a repositioning and suturing technique of the malar pad just underneath the skin. With a subtle lift, the volume is regained on the cheekbones, and the pockets below the eyes are also diminished. This technique takes the pressure off of the nasolabial folds, or the laugh lines, which helps soften the lines around the mouth. This effort results in a refreshed, more youthful appearance. The surgery is performed at the hospital under general anesthesia.
