A cheek lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure done to help improve the overall look and contour of the cheeks and cheekbones.
A cheek lift, as the name suggests, lifts any loose or sagging skin and soft tissue around the cheek and replaces it in a more youthful position to help better define the area and improve the silhouette of your cheeks. The procedure is also known as a midface lift and may be combined with other procedures to deliver a more comprehensive result.
A cheek lift is similar to facelift surgery, as it addresses not only the skin and tissue but muscles and bones underneath. When performed by a delicate and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Chelsea Troiano, a cheek lift can deliver natural-looking results that compliment your facial structure and profile.
The treatment itself can be performed in various ways, with both non-surgical and surgical options available. Non-surgical choices, like dermal fillers, involve injecting the desired amount of the hyaluronic acid solution into the target area.
More in-depth procedures, like a cheek lift surgery, will require making incisions along the hairline or around the lower eyelids and trimming, lifting, and restructuring the area as needed.
The most obvious difference between non-surgical and surgical solutions is the incisions and physical manipulation of your features. Our non-surgical cheek lift procedures use minimally invasive tools to address specific issues in the area and help rejuvenate the mid-face region.
Dr. Troiano recommends this for patients who have mild to moderate aging of the midface or a sunken appearance in the cheeks. If you want to address more significant facial aging under the eyes, around the cheekbones, and above the jaw, a surgical procedure may be best. This is determined on a patient by patient basis and the reasons why a certain approach would be recommended over another will be reviewed with you by Dr. Troiano.
The cost of a cheek lift procedure will depend on the type of treatment a patient chooses. Surgical procedures will be the most costly upfront and require a greater commitment to account for the healing. However, in the long run, can be much cheaper than repeat injections. The costs are always considered based on your unique surgical needs combined with technical services like the cost of Dr. Troiano and her surgical team.

Most cosmetic surgery procedures are intended to have long-lasting or permanent results. Cheek lift surgery, especially those with implants and facial restructuring, can have permanent results.
However, as our bodies continue to shift with age, you may still see changes in the area after years. Non-surgical solutions, on the other hand, generally are not permanent and can have immediate but short-lived results.
Cheek lift surgery is performed using general anesthesia to ensure pain or discomfort is not felt and patients are fast asleep. Following surgery, ice and pain medication is used to manage discomfort.
If you are starting to see your facial structure sink, droop, or otherwise start to succumb to the natural side effects of gravity, aging, and hormonal changes. A cheek lift can help reverse this and deliver a perkier facial contour, with a Y shape that is prominent in youthful faces. Patients see a sustained improvement and can look and feel years younger.
