Is there a cut-off age for when you decide it's not practical to undergo a cheek lift?

I am aware it takes longer to recover when you are older than when you are younger, I am 60 years old.


It very much depends on what you would like to achieve through a cheek lift, as well as the characteristics of the skin and the volumes of the face.

In some instances, volume augmentation can produce an impression of lift, or indeed can be combined with a lift for enhanced effect.

3-D imaging and simulation during consultation can sometimes help to expand on these points and facilitate decision-making regarding management.
