Question: For the cheek lift, where are the incisions made? I understand that you’re doing work in the cheek area as well as the temple area. Does this mean that the incisions are made in both these areas?
Answer: There are number of procedures which are performed to lift the face and to enhance the cheek area. Incisions can be made inside the mouth intraorally and they can also be made inside the hairline or other inconspicuous places. These incisions are placed so that they are not visible. The most important thing when considering any lifting procedure is to make sure that the vector of elevation is such that it creates a natural appearance for the face. If the face is lifted too wide sideways or laterally, this may cause the face to appear wider, while pulling too tight may lead to a windswept appearance of the face.
