Subperiosteal Cheek Lift
A conservative incision is placed just inside the temporal hairline to prevent visible scarring on the face. Using endoscopic cameras and tools, we are able to elevate the facial tissues and lift the cheeks to a more youthful position. This procedure is ideal for lightening the bags that form above the cheek bones and below the eyes.The surgery usually takes about 2 hours to complete and can be performed as either an inpatient or outpatient surgery.
Risk factors that are present in most cosmetic surgeries are also present here such as: blood clots, hematoma or seroma that can result in scarring, skin surface issues like hair loss at incision sites, facial numbness, and skin discolorations are the rare complications associated with the cheek lift.
There are some side effects, such as feeling a numb like sensation in the upper lip, which can make it difficult at times to drink something from a glass (also temporary and the sensation will go away with time). There might appear to be slight bruising or swelling around the eyes, but this can be combated like any sprain or swelling, by raising the head above the heart while lying down and also by using a cold compress over the areas.
One of the most commonly reported after-effects is slight pain in the cheekbone area, but like the other side effects it also will subside in time.
