Dr. Husam Elias is a Sherman Oaks, CA plastic surgeon who offers cheek lift surgery for patients desiring a mid-facelift to correct sagging cheeks. Age, weight loss, and gravity are natural occurrences that can take a toll on facial features. In some patients, the cheekbones are especially affected. When this happens, the tissue attached to the cheekbones (known as the malar pad) droops, giving the appearance of a sunken mid-face. The sagging of the cheeks becomes more noticeable as a person ages, making people appear old and tired. A cheek lift provides a subtle lift to the mid-face, resulting in a smoother facial appearance.

Cutting-edge endoscopy technology is a popular method used to reposition sagging cheeks. Small incisions, less than an inch long, are made near the ear or hairline. These incisions allow Dr. Elias to insert and utilize a tiny camera positioned at the end of a small tube. Once the inside of the cheek area is visible, the surgeon performs a repositioning and suturing technique of the malar pad just underneath the skin. With a subtle lift, volume is regained on the cheekbones, and the pockets below the eyes are also diminished. This technique takes the pressure off of the nasolabial folds or the laugh lines, which helps soften the lines around the mouth. This effort results in a rejuvenated appearance.

General anesthesia is used for this outpatient procedure that lasts for about 1 – 2 hours. Swelling and bruising are normal after the surgery. There will be a tight sensation around the face area, which eventually disappears as the reattached fat pad settles on its new position. It can take up to six months for the final results to appear. Patients do not need to be worried that the results will appear fake or "plastic." Dr. Elias is an extremely skilled facial surgeon and creates natural-looking results.

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
