Cheek & Chin Augmentation NY

With age, gravity pulls down on the cheek and face, causing a flat appearance. Additionally, the lower eyelid may droop, causing a sad or tired appearance.

A cheek lift or mid-facelift can restore fullness to the cheek and soften the deep lines extending from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth nasolabial folds. It can also raise the outer portion of the eyebrow, creating a more rested and youthful appearance. The cheek lift may be done as a single procedure or with other facial surgeries.

Key Facts

Anesthesia: General anesthesia
Inpatient/outpatient: Outpatient
Length of procedure: 2 hours
Anticipate: Mild swelling and bruising in the cheeks and around the eyes for a week to 10 days
Discomfort: Moderate, but controlled with pain medication
Final result: 2 to 4 months as swelling resolves
Duration of results: 5 to 10 years and the body continues to age

What to expect

Dr. Shafer makes an incision above each ear beyond the hairline and sometimes in the mouth. A stitch is placed inside each oral incision to catch the cheek pad. The stitch is then secured under the scalp.

A mid-facelift can dramatically change your appearance.
