Cheek Implants Can Improve the Appearance of Skin Aging

The appearance of skin aging is often the result of decreased exfoliation and collagen production in facial tissues. This is even more likely to be an issue if you use tobacco on a regular basis or go without adequate sun protection. While this often causes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it can also cause a sallow appearance in the cheeks and other parts of the face.

If you’re struggling with significant signs of skin aging, Dr. Mitchell Kaye might recommend a full facelift.

If the majority of your skin aging is related to sallow or less-than-prominent cheeks, you might be interested in cheek implants. The implants can often be installed as part of a cheek lift. This cosmetic surgical procedure calls for making small incisions in the cheeks and inserting soft, biologically safe implants into the area. This might also call for a minimal resection of skin.

At the initial consultation appointment, be sure to let Dr. Mitchell Kaye know about any medications you have or medical conditions that might increase your risk of bleeding. It’s also a good idea to take a week off from work to allow your body to focus on the recovery process and avoid strenuous activity.

The night before the cheek lift, you will need to abstain from eating or drinking after midnight. Since you will need to be fully sedated, you will need to arrange to have a friend or family member drive you home.
