You live life on your own terms. Each new day serves up challenges to be faced and opportunities to be embraced. But over a lifetime of living loud, your face can show the ravages of facing life head-on. Your cheeks can often show early signs of aging, making you appear far older than your age — and certainly older than you feel. If your cheeks are sagging with the weight of years gone by, consider turning up the volume with cheek lift and/or cheek augmentation surgery from Dr. Eric Cerrati.
What Can Cheek Lift / Augmentation Surgery Do for Me?
In this cosmetic procedure, Dr. Cerrati lifts the cheek area to remedy a hollow, sagging appearance in your cheeks. Patients who need added volume to improve shape and definition can benefit from a cheek augmentation, which can also be performed at the same time. Often, patients will require both procedures to accomplish the desired appearance. Cheek augmentation can be accomplished by fat transfer or implant.
What is Involved in Cheek Lift / Augmentation Surgery?
Dr. Cerrati will use strategically placed incisions, usually behind the ears, to lift the muscles, skin and other tissues of the cheeks to remedy sagging. Some excess skin may also be removed. Any needed augmentation can be placed and manipulated through the same incisions. Your scars will be minimal and hidden from view. Slight swelling and bruising are to be expected as you recover from the surgery, but they should resolve within 7-10 days. In two weeks, you should be fully recovered and showing off your vibrant and youthful-looking face.
