About Cheek Lift
Cheeks are the aesthetic focal point of the face. They have the ability to make the face appear male, female, young, old, attractive or less so.
Men and women have different ideal shapes when it comes to their cheeks. Women look soft, feminine and attractive with full round cheeks. Men, on the other hand, are ideally suited for cheeks that are short and narrow which gives the face an overall chiseled or angular appearance that is perceived as ruggedly masculine.
The Cheek Lift Advantage
Cheek Lift, also known as malar or submalar augmentation, is a plastic surgery procedure which uses implants or otherwise to add definition and fullness to the cheekbones. Cheek augmentation can add a more balanced appearance to the face. The surgery may be performed on its own or it may be combined with other procedures like a facelift.
Some of the benefits of cheek lift surgery include:
- Reduced appearance of nasolabial creases (lines between the nose and mouth)
- Enhanced mid-facial volume and curves on the cheeks
- Lifted the corners of the mouth gently
- Smoother skin under the eyes and a more rested appearance
What is the Cheek Lift Procedure
During the cheek lift procedure, Dr. Doshi vertically lifts the sagging cheek tissues to a more youthful position where the fatty tissue can help support the skin contours. He begins by creating well-concealed incisions on the scalp above the hairline and in the mouth above the gum line. Through these “hidden” incisions, he restores the facial tissues onto the cheekbones. The tissues are suspended into place with sutures that dissolve within a month, long after the tissues have firmly healed to their new location. As the weight of the fat is shifted, typically the skin of the cheeks and lower lids will return to their former location. The cheek lift can be combined with a face and neck lift to fully rejuvenate the face and neck in a natural appearing fashion
Incisions are made inside of the lip and then an appropriately sized implant is inserted under each cheekbone. The incisions are then closed.
Your surgeon is the best person to decide after a thorough examination which of the above procedures suits best.
Dr. Milan Doshi is a board certified cosmetic surgeon and the member of ASPS, he is highly specialized in facial surgery procedures. He takes an extraordinarily detailed approach to each procedure, and believes there is no such thing as a standard face lift. Instead, he customizes every facial surgery to the needs of the patient.
It is Dr. Doshi’s goal to maintain the patient’s natural beauty. Therefore, during the chick lift surgery, Dr. Doshi is able to precisely tighten and sculpt facial features and restore volume, preserving the patient’s natural facial contours for a natural and vibrant outcome.
As such, he has unparalleled knowledge of the underlying structures of the face and experience in dealing with delicate facial nerve.

The Aftercare Advantage/ Advice
You should avoid strenuous activities for a week after surgery to decrease any swelling. Most patients return to work in 10 days to two weeks. Occasionally, some patients report that they can feel the endotines when they touch their cheek area. The endotines will gradually disappear, and will not be noticeable after a while.
Individuals should keep the head elevated as much as possible, and utilize cold compresses in regular intervals for several days. These measures will help minimize bruising and swelling. Occasionally, a partially numb sensation may linger in the upper lip, this resolves with time.
Pre-operative requirements in order to undergo surgery
- To ensure a safe surgical procedure, your current health history as well as your medications and drug allergies will be reviewed.
- You will be asked to stop taking any medications that can thin your blood and increase your risk of bleeding before the surgery.
- Routine laboratory testing is ordered.
- It is important to be sun-smart (using UVA and UVB sun protection) prior to any Face Lift procedure.
- Stop smoking for at least two weeks before and one week after surgery, as nicotine can impair circulation and healing.
- Avoid alcohol in excess for two weeks before and one week after the surgery.

Due to the more conservative nature of the cheek lift procedure, which does not require skin to be pulled or trimmed, this operation typically offers a shorter recovery period and less downtime when compared to a facelift. Cheek swelling of some amount persists for weeks; however, this effect generally is not noticeable to others as any abnormal size or shape due to surgical swelling is almost always gone in a week to 10 days.
Results will last for
The natural aging process will continue, and the skin around the cheeks may begin to naturally slide again after several years, although individual experiences will vary. To help maintain the outcome, patients are encouraged to avoid smoking, excess sun exposure, and dramatic changes in weight. By following these suggestions, benefits almost always last 10 years or longer.
