A cheek lift or “mini-face lift” is an excellent procedure to rejuvenate aging of the midface.  It is best used in people with minimal signs of aging.  In this patient, the procedure was chosen over more aggressive rejuvenation procedures because she has slight hollowness of the cheeks, minimal jowl formation, minimal prominence of the nasolabial folds, and an excellent aesthetic of the neck.

The patient is shown 2 months postop.  Note that the improvement is subtle, but natural looking, and achieves her goal of a more youthful appearance.
