I am particularly interested in Endotine Cheek Lift Surgery.

I am 22 so you may wonder why somebody so young would need such a procedure. Around 1 year ago I took an allergic reaction to a cream placed under my eyes and as such it thinned the skin quite badly, making it appear overly saggy and aged the whole area around the cheeks.

It is for this reason I think the procedure mentioned above would be beneficial.


As you mention in your question, it is a very early age to consider a cheek lift. If there is a significant change in the skin under the eyes, one of the options could be to use skin resurfacing to produce a thickening effect.

The Endotine midface is designed for the cheek lift, and helps produce a resuspension of the cheek mound. I am not sure that this would necessarily improve the appearance of the skin in the lower part of the lower eyelids, but I could probably advise you better in consultation.
