A cheek lift, sometimes called a mid-face lift or meloplication, uses sutures passed under the skin to provide a youthful mid-face elevation without the scars or long recovery time of a full facelift. It offers a simple but powerful way to maintain a youthful lift to the cheek area.

The procedure can be performed by itself or combined with other facial procedures, such as a brow lift, to provide a more comprehensive youthful appearance.

A cheek lift is performed by placing a tiny incision near the nose, which is used to suspend a suture from the hairline to the cheek to elevate the tissue. The sutures beneath the skin provide an invisible support for the tissues in the mid-face. The operation is usually done on an outpatient basis, with local anesthesia and sedation.

Recovery involves minimal initial discomfort that is controlled with oral medication. Most patients return to normal activity within a week. Bruising and swelling will decrease within 7 to 14 days.

Who is a Cheek Lift Candidate?

Candidates for a cheek lift have:

  • skin excess in the mid-face area
  • early drooping cheeks
  • hollowing of the upper cheek area

Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Slenkovich routinely performs cheek lift surgery on plastic surgery patients who desire a refreshed, youthful facial appearance.
