CABLE LIFT or Percutaneous Cheek lift

What is a cable lift?

 

A cable or percutaneous cheek lift is a procedure in which sutures are placed through tiny incisions in the nasojugal line (fold extending between the nose and lips), cross through the malar cheek pad and exit behind the temporal hairline. The cheek pad is lifted and the nasojugal line softened. This procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure under a local anesthetic. There is typically minimal bruising and some swelling after the procedure. Most people can return to work or their daily activities in a day or so.
