Mini Cheek Lift
Mini Cheeck Lift
The mini cheek lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to tighten the cheek and jowl area. It is ideal for patients who are looking for just a touch-up rather than a full facelift. Candidates for the mini cheek lift include healthy younger patients who have good underlying bony architecture, minimal loose skin, and minimal jowls.
Dr. Kulak performs the mini cheek lift at Countryside Ambulatory Surgery Center or at an INOVA system hospital which include Fair Oaks Hospital, Loudoun Hospital, Fairfax Hospital, and Mt. Vernon Hospital. The procedure takes about an hour to complete and may be performed with MAC (monitored anesthesia care) or local anesthesia.
The mini cheek lift involves small hidden incisions which are camouflaged within the hairline and inside of the ear for women or in front of the ear for men. To provide the most natural and long-lasting results without a "pulled-back" look, Dr. Kulak performs a modified composite lift with SMAS elevation and imbrication. Liposuction is occasionally used as well.
There is minimal swelling and bruising associated with the mini cheek lift. Recovery takes five to seven days, and the stitches will be removed in about seven days. Most patients can return to work in about a week, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for about two weeks.
