Cheek Lift and Mid-Face Lift Procedures

A cheek or mid-face lift is designed to address a range of specific concerns related to facial aging in the cheek and mid-face region. This approach targets issues such as sagging skin, loss of volume and the descent of facial tissues. The procedure is particularly effective in addressing mid-face laxity, which can result in the formation of nasolabial folds, hollowed cheeks, and an overall tired or aged appearance. By lifting and repositioning the underlying structures, Dr. Talei aims to restore a more youthful contour, enhance cheekbone definition and alleviate wrinkles. This surgery is well-suited for individuals experiencing signs of aging in the mid-face area, providing a transformative solution to achieve a refreshed and harmonious facial aesthetic.

Mid-face lifts are a popular alternative to the traditional facelift because they often result in less pain and a quicker recovery. What’s more, you’ll love Dr. Talei’s natural results that will have you looking completely refreshed and back to your normal activities in just a matter of time.

How is a cheek lift performed?

A cheek and mid-face lift is a meticulously performed cosmetic surgery aimed at rejuvenating the mid-facial region to achieve a more youthful and lifted appearance. The procedure typically involves discreetly placed incisions, often within the hairline or along the natural contours of the face. Through these incisions, Dr.Talei carefully lifts and repositions the underlying facial tissues, addressing concerns such as sagging skin, loss of volume and mid-face laxity. Depending on the individual’s specific needs, he may also tighten underlying muscles and remove excess skin to create a smoother and more refined contour. Advanced techniques may include fat grafting to restore volume and enhance cheek prominence. The goal is to achieve natural-looking results that harmonize with the overall facial aesthetic. The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia for patient comfort.
