Cheek Lift Surgery
Dr. DeMars is one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in the greater Portland area. He offers a variety of facial rejuvenation procedures, including the sophisticated ENDOTINE cheek lift. Many patients from Portland, Salem and Vancouver, WA, have come to Dr. DeMars’ plastic surgery office to receive treatment from his skilled hands. In the paragraphs below, Dr. DeMars explains the ENDOTINE cheek lift procedure and describes the results that can be achieved through this treatment.
The area between your lower eyelids and your mouth is considered the midface. As you age, the effects of gravity, repeated muscle contractions, and lifestyle cause the skin, fat and muscles in the midface region to move downwards. When this occurs, the cheeks begin to look saggy or flat, lower eyelids can become puffy or hollow, circles begin to appear under the eyes, and the lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth deepen.
What is the ENDOTINE Cheek Lift?
The ENDOTINE cheek lift restores the natural curves and fullness in the cheeks by moving soft tissues back to where they were earlier. This is achieved by elevating the soft midface tissue from the bone, repositioning it upward towards the eyes, and fixating the tissue in place until it re-adheres naturally to the bone. This procedure restores cheek volume and establishes more youthful midface contours. The result is a natural, revitalized appearance that does not look overdone or “pulled”.
When performed by the highly experienced Portland cheek lift surgeon Dr. DeMars, this procedure delivers a completely natural-looking but noticeable improvement. Dr. DeMars frequently performs cheek lift in conjunction with other surgeries, such as facelift, eyelid surgery, and facial implants. However, for many younger patients, he can deliver remarkable midface rejuvenation results through ENDOTINE cheek lift alone.
