Also known as a mid-face lift, a cheek lift is a procedure designed to improve the look of sagging cheeks and the lower eyelid regions. During this procedure, Dr. Schalit will make incisions within the hairline of your temple so that he could access the fat pads within your cheeks. Once he makes the incisions, he’ll place suture loops through your fat pads and lift them. You’ll be left with a younger, well-rested complexion.
