Smile: Cheek Lifts Enhance Youthful Appearances


In Washington DC, plastic surgeon Mark Richards took a closer look at what exactly helps give men and women a more youthful appearance, and the answer is in the cheeks.

By focusing on this section of the face while planning plastic surgery operations, it is possible to achieve a younger appearance that isn’t achievable through traditional face and eyelifts.

Cheek implants and other cheek-related plastic surgery operations rose 47% in 2011 to an impressive 12,000 procedures done. Cheek operations are performed through an incision at the hairline and from within the mouth, making the operation nearly invisible. The cheek lift also corrects a notable problem with the eyes by raising the platform for the lower eyelid.
