For people with severe volume loss in the face, do you ever combine the cheek lift with cheek implants?
Volume loss of the face is a relatively common problem. A cheek lift will not really address volume loss of the face completely as you are really repositioning thin facial tissue into an upward position of the face. Cheek implants are a better solution to volume issues of the face as the implants will provide volume to the midface area. I prefer fat injections to the face in situations of volume loss to the face. I frequently use fat injections to the face in combination with a facelift, but, rarely with a cheek lift.
