Though we’re undoubtedly grateful that gravity keeps our feet on the ground, we’d all prefer if it didn’t exert such a downward pull on the rest of our bodies, especially the face. Today’s many advances in cosmetic procedures offer a number of treatments to help counter that gravity-induced sunken look through the mid-face that can add years to your appearance. Whether you seek to add fullness to the cheeks with implants or a mid face lift, facial contouring can bring your features into harmony while taking years off your appearance.
Throughout history, a familiar depiction of youth and beauty has been the angelic face of a rosy-cheeked cherub. We associate full, lifted cheeks with a more youthful appearance. If you’re concerned that your facial features look gaunt or your cheeks lack definition, implants may be an excellent solution to restore fullness or create dimension in naturally flatter cheekbones. The ideal candidates for cheek implants will see more balance among their facial features and enjoy improved proportions among forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.
Mid Face Lift
Performed as part of a full face lift or on its own, a mid face lift (sometimes called a cheek lift) repositions soft tissue in order to create a more youthful, lifted appearance through the cheeks. Requiring less surgical and recovery time than a full facelift, a mid facelift tightens and lifts facial skin and tissue over the cheeks. By focusing this area with surgery or implants, surgeons can better fight the effects of gravity and help to turn back the hands of time.
