Are you disappointed with sunken cheekbones that make you appear older than you actually are? Using innovative, minimally invasive techniques, board-certified surgeon Dr. James Anthony offers cheek lifts in San Francisco to help you achieve a younger appearance and restore your confidence. Sometimes weight loss and the effects of aging can negatively impact the cheekbones, causing the facial tissue to sag droop. Dr. Anthony can help restore that lost volume in the cheeks, correcting sagging and drooping for a naturally youthful look.

Am I an Ideal Candidate?

If you’re considering a cheek lift in San Francisco, you may be a perfect candidate. The best candidates have:

  • Sagging and drooping cheeks
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Deep nasolabial folds (laugh lines)
  • Dark circles under your eyes
  • A hollow under-eye appearance

So I am coming up on my 1yr since my neck and cheek lift. I am thrilled with the results and I can't say enough good things about Dr. James Anthony and his amazing staff... Ann and Amy... I also had the cool sculpting done two months ago by Amy...and I am loving the results... It's just keeps getting better and better! Thank you, thank you....


Before & After

Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique

The cheek lift procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, using general anesthesia. Small incisions (less than an inch long) are created near the ear. Through these incisions, Dr. Anthony can lift the cheek tissue (technically known as a high vertical SMAS lift) in a natural way.

This technique restores a natural lift and volume to the cheekbones and the area underneath the eyes, while also relieving pressure from the nasolabial folds to soften the areas around the mouth.

The entire procedure takes approximately three hours.

What Can I Expect After My Procedure?

Swelling and bruising are common after a cheek lift, in addition to tightness around the face, which dissipates as the cheeks settle into their new position. Your full results will set in over the course of about six months, with follow-up appointments recommended so Dr. Anthony can track your healing process and be sure you’re happy with your results.

How Much Does a Cheek Lift Cost?

The price of a San Francisco cheek lift varies from patient to patient. During your consultation, Dr. Anthony will discuss the total costs of the procedure with you, talking you through financial planning and financing options that can help you to better afford your procedure.

Are There Less Invasive Options for Receiving Similar Results?

If you aren’t quite ready for a surgical procedure, we offer injectable fillers that can enhance the appearance of your cheeks. While effective, they typically don’t provide results that are quite as drastic as what you might see after cheek lift surgery. Additionally, fillers don’t correct loose skin, but instead work by adding volume to the face and smoothing wrinkles.

What’s the Difference Between a Cheek Lift and a Cheek Augmentation?

To decide between a cheek lift and a cheek augmentation, we will assess the amount of tissue volume present in your cheeks. The cheek lift is often ideal for individuals that have a good amount of volume but seek to reposition the tissue. A cheek augmentation or implant, on the other hand, is better suited to those without sufficient existing tissue, who desire more cheek volume.

Will My Results Appear Natural?

Dr. Anthony prides himself in his ability to achieve natural-looking results, and he’ll work closely with you to achieve your desired outcome. Immediately after your procedure the skin will appear to be tighter, but once it has adjusted to its new position, you’ll enjoy an even more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

Will I Have Visible Scars?

An endoscopic procedure leaves far less noticeable scars. Dr. Anthony takes great care to conceal incisions within the hairline or natural creases of the face, and also provides you with aftercare instructions designed to help you minimize scarring.
