3 Options to Fix Saggy Cheeks

Regaining confidence in your appearance becomes increasingly important as age takes its toll on the volume around your cheeks. If you’re tired of facing saggy cheeks every time you look in the mirror, there are numerous avenues to explore.

Nestled in Encinitas, California, Yco Facial Plastic Surgery, led by the skilled plastic surgeon Dr. Mario Yco, MD, specializes in cutting-edge, minimally invasive treatments designed to combat age-related wrinkles and loose skin around the cheekbones.

Dr. Yco provides tailored skin consultations to determine whether nonsurgical treatments or facial plastic surgery is the right path for you.

Understanding the root cause of saggy cheeks is crucial. Aging prompts a slowdown in collagen and elastin production, vital proteins responsible for maintaining youthful, healthy skin. The reduction in these proteins results in skin losing its firmness and flexibility, leading to the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Over time, the skin around the cheekbones may begin to sag, a phenomenon accelerated by factors like rapid weight loss, stress, genetics, muscle atrophy, and repetitive facial movements.

Prolonged exposure to the sun without proper protection also contributes to saggy, wrinkled skin. The ultraviolet (UV) rays can wreak havoc on exposed areas like the face, neck, and arms.

Dr. Yco, an experienced facial plastic surgeon, recognizes the impact of facial volume loss on one’s appearance. To enhance natural contours and help you achieve your aesthetic goals, he offers various treatments targeting saggy skin around the cheekbones.

Options include:

  1. PDO Thread Lift: Involves the insertion of PDO threads with barbs into the skin around your cheeks, lifting and stimulating collagen production for enhanced cheekbone contours.
  2. Dermal Fillers: Injecting substances like hyaluronic acid to restore lost volume and fill in saggy, hollowed cheeks for a refreshed look.
  3. Face-Lift: A surgical procedure to remove excess skin and reposition facial muscles, providing a younger-looking and natural appearance.

Dr. Yco’s approach extends to advanced surgical techniques for face-lifts to minimize scarring and potential skin damage.

If saggy facial skin concerns you, Dr. Yco can guide you through a thorough consultation to discuss your personalized next steps. Reach out to YCO Facial Plastic Surgery at 760-944-4211 or schedule an appointment online for more information.
