Minimally Invasive (M.I.) Cheek Lift
Our cheeks tend to sag with age and also lose volume as they become flattered and “longer”. This is one of the earliest signs of aging and the process can start to happen to people in their thirties. It steadily progresses as the years go by and can make people look years older and “tired”. A traditional cheek lift was an extensive procedure that often resulted in weeks of swelling and recovery. Alternatively, an M.I. Cheek Lift can be done at Evolutions Medical Spa with only local anesthetic and oral sedation, which makes the procedure and the recovery much easier. Dr. Perkins uses small incisions hidden in the hair by the upper ear. Deep supporting tissue is tightened and a small amount of skin is removed, resulting in a more youthful, “refreshed” look. Additional volume (either with dermal fillers or with a fat transfer) can also be added to the mid-face, nasolabial folds, and/or the pre-jowl area to allow more “sculpting” and to further enhance the result.
