Cheek Augmentation and Cheek Lift
One of the first areas that show age is our cheeks. As time passes, collagen production slows dramatically, leaving our skin at the mercy of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, the wind’s cold hand and other things harmful to our skin. However, just as the cheeks show age the easiest, one of the simplest face & neck cosmetic procedures that can erase age from the face is a cheek augmentation or lift.
In a cheek lift procedure, Dr. Cerrati lifts the cheek area to remedy a hollow, sunken look. If you lack the needed definition in your cheeks and cheekbones, he can also perform a cheek augmentation to add volume to hollow, sagging cheeks. Many times, patients will require both augmentation and lifting to achieve the desired results. Volume can be added during the procedure by using a fat transfer or augmenting the cheeks with an implant.
Lasting Cosmetic Enhancements for the Face
Your cheek augmentation or cheek lift surgery can be accomplished by Dr. Cerrati through minimal incisions strategically placed to hide scars. Slight swelling and bruising are to be expected as you recover from the surgery, but it should resolve within 7-10 days. In two weeks, you should be fully recovered and able to show off your vibrant and youthful-looking face.
Dr. Eric Cerrati is a fellowship trained and dual board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, with many years of experience in cosmetic facial surgical procedures. He will discuss the benefits and risks of a cheek lift/augmentation procedure, including adding needed volume if that is indicated. You are in the best of hands when you choose Dr. Cerrati to perform your cheek lift or augmentation surgery.
