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.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION View Update Virtual Consultation



Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
