As we age, our tissues lose the strength they once possessed and begin to droop. Though it is a slow and subtle process, it results in an older, tired appearance. When the lower eyelid and cheek regions succumb to this process, it may be time to come in for a mid-cheek lift procedure.
The mid-cheek lift procedure begins with the application of anesthetic. After this, an incision is created in the skin crease found beneath the eye. This incision gives the facial plastic surgeon access to the underlying drooping fatty tissues, which are repositioned to add a lift to the lower eyelid and cheek regions.
