Cheek Lift and Cheek Implants
Cheek lift, also known as a midface lift, is a surgical procedure that aims to lift and tighten the skin on the cheeks, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging, and restore the youthful contour of the midface. Cheek lift surgery can be done on its own or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift or neck lift.
Cheek implants, on the other hand, are a type of facial implant that is designed to enhance the volume and projection of the cheeks. They are made of silicone or other biocompatible materials and are surgically inserted into the cheeks through incisions inside the mouth or under the lower eyelids. Cheek implants can create a more defined cheekbone structure and improve the overall balance and symmetry of the face.
A cheek lift surgery can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the procedure. The duration of a cheek implant procedure is typically shorter than a cheek lift, usually taking about 1 hour to complete.
For a cheek lift surgery, the initial recovery period is typically around 1-2 weeks. During this time, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the surgical area. The recovery time for a cheek implant is generally shorter.
Both cheek lift and cheek implant procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient will be asleep and not feel any pain or discomfort during the surgery.
