Cheek Lifts & Cheek Implants
Cheek lifts (midface lifts) and cheek implants involve fairly major surgery done from inside the eyelid so there is no scarring and is commonly associated with transconjunctival fat blepharoplasty of the lower lid. The cheek is lifted and contoured and is tightened with special anchoring sutures and can be augmented using fat transfer techniques.
Cheek implants are generally bio-integratable, meaning the body’s own tissues grow within and around the implants to give a natural appearance. Often as a postscript to surgery, dermal fillers or fat are injected to further contour and shape the cheek for a natural appearance.
