Loss of, or sagging cheek pads, can change the overall appearance of your face. The fat pads located on the upper cheekbones lift and contour the face. Diminished cheek fat can make the face appear gaunt, aged and affect the tissue under the eyes. Cheek augmentation, or a cheek lift, can help recontour the face for a more youthful and attractive appearance. This transforming procedure is available at City Facial Plastics in Manhattan.

Weight loss, aging and genetics can all impact the fat layers in the cheek. Fat loss under the skin is a normal effect of aging, which can make the face appear much older. Cheek augmentation, implants, fillers or fat transfers can recontour the face to improve overall youthfulness and appearance. The procedure can help minimize bags under the eyes and soften the facial appearance, creating more balance for your features.

Cheek Lift Surgery

In some cases, cheek fat is not lost, but instead has sagged with age. The cheek pads can droop from gravity and lost elasticity in the skin. A cheek lift can bring the buccal fat pads back to a more youthful position. This can change the contours of the face and help diminish hollows under the eyes.

Dr. Gary Linkov is a skilled facial plastic surgeon with expertise in facial rejuvenation. Using advanced techniques and cutting-edge surgical options, he can reposition or augment the cheeks to create a flattering appearance to the face. Both cheek augmentations and lifts can help restore more balanced, attractive contours for a youthful, energetic appearance in both men and women.

If you would like to explore cheek augmentation or lift options, contact City Facial Plastics on the Upper East Side to schedule a consultation. Dr. Linkov can help you find the best procedure to obtain the look you desire to improve self-confidence in your appearance.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
