Midface Lift (Cheek Lift) And Cheek Augmentation
As we age, sun-damage, gravity and fat deflation cause aging of the face and its “collapse”. One area in which these effects are significant is the midface (cheek) area, which extends from the lower eyelids to the nasolabial folds. With age, the midface deflates, flattens, and falls, making the face appear older.
The midface can be lifted surgically to restore a more youthful facial appearance. Fat injection and/or malar implants (see below) may also be used during a midface lift to maximize contour, projection, and volume augmentation.
Benefits of a Midface Lift
Round facial contours and midface/cheek projection is the mark of youth and beauty. A midface lift can beautifully restore the youthful contour and three-dimensional projection to the midface area that so many patients desire. Fat injection and/or malar implants (see below) may also be used during a midface lift to maximize contour, projection, and volume augmentation.
Cheek Augmentation Procedure
There are several techniques for midface lifting, including trans-eyelid (transconjunctival – inside the lower eyelid), endoscopic through the temples behind the hairline, and throughinside the mouth. Which technique is best for you is based on a variety of factors including your current facial structure, previous facial surgeries (if applicable), and your aesthetic goals.
Cheek (malar) augmentation, using implants, can help restore the fullness of the midface area. Cheek implants are made out of permanent solid materials in various shapes and sizes, depending on the area to be augmented. These implants are inserted through hidden incisions, including inside the mouth, inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival), and behind the hairline along the temple. After healing, the implant generally feels as if it is part of your own cheekbone.
