When do you get to a point where you realize you really do need a cheek lift? What happens after that? There comes a point where you stand in front of your mirror, but you cannot appreciate what you are seeing. Place one or two of your fingers on a part of your cheek and lift it up. If you feel like you love what you see, there is a good chance that you would benefit a great deal from getting a mid-face lift. This is one of the easiest ways for you to determine whether you need to get in touch with your doctor about it, or not.
In such situations, there are other options that you might want to consider, like a face lift or even a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. However, the results that you will get might not really be worthwhile. The changes that you notice in the lower eyelids happen because your cheek has dropped, and more importantly, this is what is making the eyelid tissues get pulled down. As a result, you will also end up noticing that the fat pockets will be more visible in your lower eyelids, and this creates the hollows that you will be worrying about.
When you get this procedure carried out, it is possible to have the tissues affected re-suspended to a higher position. In fact, this is how to restore the cheeks to the position they were while you were still much younger. As a result of this, you will need less surgery on your lower eyelids and the hollows that you were worried about will even become less obvious.
A cheek lift plastic surgery is often done together with a tightening procedure for the lower eyelids at no additional cost. In the event that there is a need for an incision to extend high into the temples and hairline, a facelift might be necessary perhaps together with a cheek lift.
How long will the cheek lift results last?
Generally, the results of this procedure will be long term. In fact, there is a sure guarantee that you will love the outcome for a very long time into the future. Of course, you will age, as people naturally do, but in most cases, you will age gracefully, looking as naturally youthful as you currently do.
Are there any risks in getting this procedure done? Well, there are common risks such as the risk of hemorrhage, scarring, and infections. There are situations where you might even end up with your eyelids being pulled down. You might even end up with weaker eyebrows, or some of the other muscles in your face might also get weakened in the process.
