Especially after the age of 40, sagging occurs on the cheeks. The most effective solution for this will be aesthetic operations. In order to look aesthetically beautiful, cheek lift should be applied by a specialist doctor. As a result of a successful surgery, cheekbones are revealed and sagging towards the lower side is removed. Thus, a much younger and more beautiful appearance appears on your face.

The information that cheek lift surgery is only applied to adults aged 40 and over is not correct. It is also suitable for people over the age of 18 who do not have any health problems that may prevent surgery. Likewise, when your cheekbones are high, you can have cheek lift aesthetics. In cases where the cheekbones are protruding but the cheekbones are flattened, surgery is an effective solution.

The important thing for cheek lift operations is to choose the right address. With Yücel Sarıaltın, you can make sure that you will receive professional service.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

Even if you pay attention to every issue, it is possible to encounter the problem of cheek sagging. In such a case, cheek lifting will come to your rescue. Cheek lift operation is the most suitable procedure for rejuvenation. Cheek lift surgery should be performed only in a full-fledged hospital with professional and experienced specialist doctors. Thus, it is possible to get rid of the volume loss problem.

What is Cheek Lift Surgery?

Especially women who are faced with sagging cheeks may consider plastic surgery to get rid of it. The cheek lift process makes the cheeks look tight. For a young and dynamic face, cheekbones should be protruding. Mouth level is a little more inside. Cheek lift is applied precisely to make the skin look aesthetic.

It is possible to find out if cheek lift is right for you. First, look at your face in the mirror. There is a proportion between the cheekbones of your face and lip. If the proportion is no longer there, you may need to have a cheek lift. Of course, you should talk to your doctor to get more detailed information.

Those who have cheek sagging problems wonder if the surgery will be enough. It is generally seen that the cheek lift operation is insufficient for people above their fifties. In this case, face lift can be applied. In cases where there is excessive sagging and wrinkles on the skin, different procedures can also be applied. Eyebrow lifting is one of them.

How Is Cheek Lift Surgery Performed?

The main purpose of cheek lift operations is to make the face more proportional. In this way, the lower side enlargement caused by cheek sagging is reduced. A more aesthetic appearance is obtained in the form of the face. In the surgery, local anesthesia is used to prevent the patient from suffering.

During the procedure, small incisions are made behind the ear or inside the cheek. For cheek lift where the incisions are located, the natural tissues of the skin are surgically removed. In the last stage of the procedure, stitches are applied to the incision areas. In cheek sagging, the face should be wrapped with a bandage at the end of the plastic surgery. This is a method that reduces the swelling that will occur on the skin after the surgery.

This surgery, which will make the cheek area look more aesthetic, takes a short time. The surgery is completed in approximately one or two hours. Facial bruising and swelling may occur for the first few days when the cheek lift process is over. This takes 1-2 weeks. If you encounter more complications, you should definitely consult your doctor.

It is possible to have numbness on the skin after surgery for sagging cheeks. However, this is completely temporary. In a few weeks, the feeling starts on the skin again. At the same time, infection can occur after surgery. Infection is common in cheek lift with incisions and stitches. You can overcome this situation in a short time by using the medicines given by your doctor.

What Should Be Considered After Cheek Lift Surgery?

After each surgery, some complications may occur. As in any surgery, there are some things you should pay attention to in order to minimize possible complications in cheek lift surgery. Thus, it is possible to get results exactly as you want. The facts you should pay attention to in order to completely get rid of the cheek sagging problem after the surgery can be listed as follows:

  • Your doctor will give you some medicines to reduce the pain. You need to use these medicines correctly and regularly. Thus, the swelling and pain that may occur after the cheek sagging procedure is minimized.
  • It is necessary to pay attention to the way of laying. Lying face down can adversely affect swelling after surgery.
  • Hot or cold press can be applied to reduce swelling after surgery. But definitely talk to your doctor before having a cheek lift.
  • Good nutrition is very important after cheek lift surgery. Be careful to consume foods that are especially high in protein.
  • If you smoke, you should not smoke right after the surgery. Because smoking delays the recovery period of your surgery for cheek sagging due to its ingredients.
  • Do not delay the doctor's check-ups after the operation. This is important for you to find out how the cheek lift process works. In addition, if there is a problem, it is immediately intervened.

Paying attention to the above after a cheek lift provides many advantages. Monitor yourself after surgery to heal faster. If you experience an unexpected situation, consult your doctor.

Since it is a reliable treatment method, the risks of cheek lift are less than other surgeries. At the same time, since local anesthesia is applied, there is no feeling of pain during the operation.
