I think I look pretty good for an “old” lady of 63. I really have very few wrinkles, I have maintained my weight and I exercise daily. Why then, when I have taken such good care of myself, do I have loose folds of skin on my cheeks? Can I get these fold removed with a midface lift?
The most likely reason for skin folds in the cheeks of a healthy 63 year old physically fit woman is volume loss. Compare the way your face looks today to a photo of yourself when you were 35. Notice how the fullness of the brow, temples, cheeks and even jawline has decreased. While a lift might reposition the tissue a little, the real solution is to replace what has been lost, volume. This can be done using what has been lost, your own fat, through a fat transfer procedure, or it can be done with fillers such as Sculptra, Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane or Restylane Lyft. More information about each of these procedures is available on this website.
