Part of the doctor’s recent public education drive on common surgery procedures, the announcement disseminates pertinent information to help anyone interested in a cheek lift make an educated decision.
Dr. Cole explains that a cheek lift is a procedure that “elevates the tissues of the cheeks to restore natural fullness”. Often combined with blepharoplasty or laser skin resurfacing, cheek lifts are popular solutions for facial correction and anti-aging treatments.
Scientific research shows that cheek lifts are generally safe, with no or minimal risks of serious complications. A 2021 systematic review published in the Special Issue Application of Botulinum Toxin in Clinical Medicine found that AbobotulinumtoxinA has been used successfully to rejuvenate the middle and lower areas of the face. The study found no reports of serious adverse effects, with patient satisfaction being high overall.
Dr. Cole recommends that anyone interested in a cheek lift contact an experienced surgeon to discuss their needs and determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. Certain conditions may hamper wound healing (diabetes, steroid requirements, and connective tissue disorders, among others), and lifestyle adjustments may also be needed. Recovery is relatively short, with most patients being able to resume their regular activities within one to two weeks after the procedure. Temporary swelling, numbness, and light bruising may occur as part of the recovery process.
With the latest educational campaign, Dr. Cole continues his mission to provide pertinent information for individuals interested in effective surgical procedures. A quadruple board-certified surgeon, Amazon #1 best selling author, and fellowship instructor with two university programs, Dr. Cole has performed over 35,000 surgeries for patients of all ages.
A satisfied patient said: “Dr. Cole is such a wonderful doctor. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable, but he also cares about his patients. I cannot say enough to show my gratitude for what Dr. Cole did for my appearance and life. His staff is caring and amazing. I highly recommend Dr Cole with 5 stars plus.”
