Will my cheeks get fuller and elevated with a facelift?

When discussing facelift surgery with my Houston patients, some of my patients are interested to know if their cheeks will be pulled up with a facelift. This depends on the type of facelift performed. A SMAS facelift will typically not elevate the cheeks but simply tighten the jowls and jawline and maybe the neck a little. A deep plane facelift will help elevate the cheeks to create a higher appearing cheek bone and create fuller cheeks. Whether its a mini facelift or a full facelift with neck lift, Dr. Funk performs a deep plane dissection elevating the SMAS and releasing the retaining ligaments.
