The cheeks play an important role in the youthfulness of your face. When the cheeks sag, it can make your face look sunken, and there may be increased bags or hollows under the eyes. To restore the shape of the midface, you need the cheeks lifted, plumped and tightened. For many, this can be accomplished with a non-surgical cheek lift, available at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA.

As you get older, the cheeks and midface may change. It is common for the youthful plumpness of the cheeks to diminish with age, and the skin may begin to lose its elasticity and firmness. The fat pads that sit high on the cheekbones during youth can flatten and begin to droop if the skin and tissue loses its firmness. The result is deeper or more pronounced bags or hollows under the eyes, deeper smile lines and a slight drooping of the cheeks. In the early stages, these changes can be addressed with non-surgical treatments to tighten the skin and give the cheeks a “lift.”

Midface Skin Tightening

The skin loses elasticity when the collagen levels begin to drop in the 20s and 30s. This can allow the midface and cheeks to lose their firmness. Skin tightening treatments can stimulate collagen production using energy waves. Radiofrequency (RF) and other treatments can improve the elasticity of the cheeks to help “lift” the midface. Other non-surgical treatments can enhance the skin tightening, including facial filler injections to restore volume in the cheeks and under smile lines.

If you want to rejuvenate your cheeks and midface but you are not ready for a surgical cheek lift or mid facelift, consider a non-surgical cheek lift.
