A cheek lift, also known as a mid-facelift, restores youthful vitality to the mid-face, lifting and shaping the cheeks to achieve a natural, rejuvenated look. Prospective patients want to decrease signs of aging that have become apparent in the mid-facial region. The results are natural and can truly bring out the beauty and youthful look desired.
Cheek Lift (Mid-Facelift) Surgery
Before your procedure, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian and his highly trained staff will meet with you to make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly, while answering any questions you may have. Education, safety, privacy, comfort, and excellence in treatment with trusting compassionate care are the hallmark of Dr. Hovsepian’s patient experience.
Prior to coming into the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach surgery center, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
Mid-facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be completely asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes several hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility, or hotel conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.
