Put the Apples back in Your Cheeks
Some people don't require the correction of a full face lift. However, these patients can get excellent results from a midface lift, or cheek lift, performed at our Milwaukee-area practice. Dr. Tracy McCall in Pewaukee, WI, offers midface lifts to help her patients address the apples of their cheeks. As you age, your skin begins to lose its elasticity, and gravity starts to drag on your facial tissues. Your cheeks are not immune to this "pull," and just like other parts of your body, they will fall and droop over time. This sagging creates grooves in your cheeks from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Eventually, your face begins to look sad, tired and old. To learn how a midface lift can counteract these effects, contact our Milwaukee-area practice serving Waukesha, Pewaukee and Brookfield today.
How Does a Midface Lift Work?
At Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery, Dr. McCall can lift your cheeks through incisions that are either in the lower eyelid or in the hair of the temples. She will then be able to manipulate the skin and muscle tissue to create a tighter and smoother appearance. Often, Dr. McCall will combine her midface lifts in Pewaukee with injections of the patient's own fat. This helps fill out the wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance.
What are Pewaukee Midface Lift Costs?
Every plastic surgery is different, so you can expect Pewaukee midface lift prices to fluctuate according to the extent of the surgery and other factors. Your initial consultation with Dr. McCall will help you answer any questions about the procedure, including midface lift costs and possible financing options.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Midface Lift?
A cheek lift addresses the area between your lower eyelid and upper lip. The procedure is ideal for men and women with sagging cheeks, but no jowls or banding of the neck.
