I feel that the sagging in my face is concentrated mostly in the area of my cheeks. Is this something that a midface lift will fix?
Yes, but we seldom perform midface lifts anymore. I have performed midface lifts through the lower eyelid, endoscopically with a browlift, and temporally with a facelift. While all of these procedures work to some extent, I have come to believe that cheek/midface aging happens primarily as a result of volume loss and not gravitational descent. Therefore, volume is the answer. Volume is replaced by either using fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse or Sculptra or with autologous fat transfer. A consultation will be necessary to determine which procedure is appropriate; however there is ample information on our website regarding all of the procedures.
