Cheek lift surgery, also known as a mid-facelift, is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts drooping cheeks and softens fine lines on the face. It helps restore fullness to the mid-face area and reduces the appearance of sunken or puffy undereyes, dents on the upper cheek, and prominent nasal folds, resulting in a more youthful and balanced facial appearance.
This procedure involves the use of advanced lifting techniques to lift the cheeks to the desired position, as this area typically starts to droop and become hollowed as people age. This makes the cheeks appear more plump, giving the patient a more refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Reasons To Undergo This Procedure
The cumulative effects of aging, weight changes, and even certain lifestyle habits can result in sagging cheeks, which can also affect the lower eyelids and the folds around the nose and mouth (also known as laugh lines). And since the cheek area makes up half of your overall face, these effects can drastically distort your facial symmetry and add years to your appearance.
With a cheek lift surgery, patients can expect significant improvement in the following cosmetic concerns:
- Drooping cheeks
- Undefined cheekbones
- Puffy or sagging lower eyelids
- Prominent nasal folds
What Are The Benefits?
Unlike a traditional facelift, a cheek lift procedure is somewhat less invasive and yields more natural results, which is why it is usually the most recommended rejuvenation option for patients with minimal to moderate signs of aging, such as those in their late 30s to early 50s.

To achieve your desired outcome from a cheek lift procedure, it is best to find a highly skilled plastic surgeon who will take the time to assess your case thoroughly and craft a targeted and individualized procedure plan for your unique needs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sedgh will take the time to get to know you, understand your specific cosmetic concerns and surgical goals, and assess you physically to ensure that you are a good candidate for the treatment. He will also perform the following:
- Interview on medical history and relevant lifestyle habits
- Complete physical assessment
- Explanation of the procedure and techniques that may be used
- Discussion on a specific procedure plan
Out-of-town or overseas patients have the option of having their preoperative consultations conducted via video conferencing if desired. Medical tourism services are also available for patients who require assistance with transportation, accommodation, and even post-op care.
A cheek lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. Downtime is usually minimal, but recovery typically varies among patients—particularly when combined with other rejuvenation surgeries. Patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and general discomfort around the affected area immediately after the procedure, but these should subside over the next few days.
To ensure proper healing and recovery, you will be advised to diligently follow the aftercare measures and take the prescribed medications. In about two to three weeks, your face should be healed enough to make you appear more socially presentable.
Dr. Sedgh is committed to providing stellar patient-centered care throughout the entire surgical process, from your first consultation to the last day of your recovery. This means that he will personally follow up on your progress by scheduling regular post-op appointments beginning on the first postoperative day, up to a year or so after.
Comfort & Transparency From Start To Finish
When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
