Placement of cheek lift incisions
For the cheek lift, where are the incisions made? I understand that you’re doing work in the cheek area as well as the temple area. Does this mean that incisions are made in both areas?
An isolated cheek lift incorporates an incision in the temple, under the lower eyelid, and occasionally inside the mouth. Sometimes, patients may benefit from a facelift/necklift in conjunction with a cheek lift. In these patients, I perform a specific type of facelift, called a high-SMAS facelift, that not only addresses the neck and lower face, but also the cheek. These incisions are hidden within the creases of the ear.
