Find Out What Your Facelift Will Look Like With Consultation
The initial consultation is one of the most important aspects of having a satisfying and successful facelift. The look you are creating by lifting your skin by the temples may or may not be possible, depending on your anatomy, skin quality, and desired results. Being evaluated in person by a facial plastic surgeon will give you better answers than your mirror can. I hope this helps.

Temporal Lift not facelift for upper cheek laxity
Thanks for this question.
No, a lifting elevation of the upper and sub-zygomatic cheek region occurs at the temple. Based on your description, you are describing a temporal lift and not a facelift to accomplish this goal. This can be performed in several different ways according to the talent and skills of your surgeon.
- subcutaneous lift in-continuity with or not-incontinuity with elevation of the cheek region during a facelift.
- endoscopic or traditional incision deep temporal lift
- endoscopic sub-periosteal brow and temporal lift
- Fillers to add volume to the upper cheek and temple. This will fill the loose envelope of skin and possibly provide a widening (by filling) the upper third of the face to make it more heart shaped.
- Sculptra is a bio-active "filler" which does not provide much volume but stimulates firming and tightening of the skin and provides an excellent response to non-surgical filling of the temporal hollow.
I hope this is helpful. All the best!
Skin laxity after jawline and cheekbone reduction, would a face lift benefit me?
The type of surgery you underwent, your age and pictures would help to assess your concerns.
If you feel your appearance is enhanced when you manipulate your face at your temples, you may benefit from a facelift with or without volume, fillers.
Had cheeks and jaw line reduced but when I lift my skin up from my temple i achieve the desire heart shape look I want. Is a fac
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation with a dermal filler or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks that will feminize the entire face.
If the chin is weak, this creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a chin implant will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick and highly effective.
If you have "jowls” these are sagging facial tissues and an indication for some form of a SMAS facelift. The underlying SMAS layer, of the face, must be dissected, lifted, trimmed and re-sutured (not merely folded or suspended with threads or sutures that will not last). The excess skin is then removed and the facelift incisions closed.
My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face, deep plane, cheek lift and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
- very small incisions
- minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
- can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without general anesthesia
- no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
- excess fat can be removed
- excess skin removed
- cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or facial implants
- most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
Hope this helps.
