Thanks for your question.Yes, Ultherapy could be used in this area to help tighten up the
skin.However since you have already had
surgery in this area, the results from Ultherapy will be subtle in comparison
to surgery.I would actually recommend
the possibility of a mini-facelift in this area to get more optimal
results.My suggestion is to schedule a
consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can give you some good
Ultherapy for Chubby Cheeks
Thanks for your question.You
may get some significant skin tightening with Ultherapy, but it may not be as
much as what you are expecting given the fact that you’ve already had surgery
to correct the area.Most likely, some
sort of mini facelift would probably give you better results.Ultherapy is a good modality and results are
significant, but they are much more subtle than what you can expect with
surgery.I would suggest a consultation
with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to see what the best course of action
would be.I hope this is helpful.Best of luck!
Ultherapy may or may not help chubby cheeks
There are sometimes multiple reasons for someone to have chubby cheeks. It may be an inherited condition and facial liposuction may help. If it is sagging that lowered mid face fat into the lower cheek compartment than a face lift may help. ThermiTight and Ultherapy may help raise a chubby cheek but a patient has to be evaluated in person to determine if they are an appropriate candidate. In addition, some patients, especially those who chronically grind their teeth may have overworked their cheek muscles and this can be improved by seeing both a dentist and having a dermatologist or other specialist, inject Botox into these muscles.
See a board certified physician who deals extensively with this condition and who does many different procedures so they know what's best for you.

Ultherapy for chubby cheeks
In my office I have found that Ultherapy does not give consistent good results on 'chubby cheeks'. Not having a photo to share I can't be specific in your case. The two clinical changes that we feel are a contraindication for Ultherapy treatments to the lower face and neck are heavy, 'chubby' cheeks and jowls and patients who have lost the ability to make healthy collagen. Collagen production starts diminishing after age 25 and is very slow in many people over the age of 60-65. This is important to know and understand as the tightening effect shown with Ultherapy is due to collagen denaturing and replacement and the ability for newer tighter collagen to be able to lift the treated areas. If you are not making good collagen and if you have particularly heavy cheeks, the outcomes are usually less than ideal.

It's difficult to make an assessment without photos, or better yet an examination. It is possible that the lift you would get from the treatment may be enough to correct your concerns. An in person consultation would be ideal. Best of luck.
