“To remove sagging cheeks on the face without surgery, there are many factors to consider. Age, skin volume and previous treatments are just some of them. But with the right combination of treatments, a lot is possible.”Dr. Peter Herndlhofer

How can sagging cheeks be treated effectively?

Do you long for a firmer chin contour, but the thought of surgery makes you hesitate? No problem! Modern anti-aging medicine has various treatments available to get rid of sagging cheeks on the face and tighten the skin on the face to a certain extent.

  • Radiofrequency microneedling:

    This modern procedure combines two established methods for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening. Microneedling and radio frequency. The combination of both stimulates collagen production without any incisions or needles. They improve the elasticity of your skin and thus reduce the appearance of sagging cheeks.

  • Thread lifting

    This minimally invasive method tightens the skin with dissolvable stitches. In addition, special threads made of polylactic acid stimulate the body’s own collagen production in order to tighten the skin. Even if the lifting effect has already worn off over time. Of course, the effect is nowhere near as long-lasting as a surgical facelift, but it is an excellent method for bridging a few years.

  • Hyaluronic acid

    A popular and comparatively simple way to counteract sagging cheeks is to inject hyaluronic acid. This provides volume and moisture, making your skin look fresher and more youthful. Important: Special injection techniques such as Jawline injections or a liquid lift using hyaluronic acid make it possible to lift the tissue so that even nasolabial folds and marionette lines are improved.

Tightening sagging cheeks: What does the treatment process look like at GoAesthetic?

  • Arrange appointment

    Make an appointment online for a consultation with Dr. Herndlhofer.

  • Medical consultation

    We discuss the treatment goals and wishes together on site. Depending on the quality of your skin and your pre-treatments, we will create a treatment concept to suit you. The older you get, the more likely it is that treatments should be combined to achieve the best results.

    With increasing age, the focus must also be shifted away from hyaluronic acid-based treatments towards other methods, as otherwise there is a risk of an unnaturally injected face. We will be happy to advise you and point out potential dangers.

  • Treatment

    Regardless of which treatment you ultimately decide on, we will numb the areas of your face to be treated with either an ointment or an anesthetic injection so that you hardly feel the treatment. If you have any further questions about the exact treatment process, take a look at the pages on the various treatments. You can find more information there. Or simply arrange a personal consultation.

Questions about the sagging cheek lift? Our FAQ section is no substitute for a consultation, but it does provide some initial guidance.

Tightening sagging cheeks without surgery is usually one of the most difficult tasks in aesthetic medicine. This is because the tension on the facial tissue is greatest in this area due to the loss of elasticity, so we need maximum strength to tighten the sagging cheeks again. Slight sagging cheeks can be treated very well with hyaluronic acid up to the early 40s – depending on the shape of the face and skin quality. Later or sometimes even earlier, a thread lift is worth considering, as it achieves a stronger tightening of the tissue. Later, it is recommended to integrate other skin tightening treatments into the treatment concept. For example: a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling. This can be used to tighten sagging cheeks from the age of 40 without surgery. As you can see, there are many ways to remove sagging cheeks.

Depending on the cause of the sagging cheeks, you can expect to pay from 690 euros. And depending on the type of treatment, repeated treatments are sometimes necessary at intervals of several months.

Do you have advanced skin aging or severely sun-damaged skin? Both are understandably much more difficult to improve, which means more treatments are necessary than if you have incipient sagging cheeks at 35. It is therefore difficult to make a general assessment in advance. The easiest way to clarify this is during a consultation and assessment of your face.

Sagging skin in the cheek and neck area can be made firmer using various methods. Here are some possibilities:

  • Topical treatments: Creams and serums with retinol, peptides and antioxidants help to firm the skin and increase collagen production.
  • Medical skin care: Professional treatments such as chemical peels or a hydrafacial remove dead skin cells and stimulate skin renewal.
  • Microneedling combined with radio frequency: This technique heats the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer skin.
  • Hyaluronic acid injections: Hyaluronic acid injections replace lost volume and plump up the skin from the inside.
  • Skinbooster (e.g. Profhilo): High-percentage fillers made from hyaluronic acid provide the skin with additional moisture and therefore improve skin quality.
  • Thread lifting: Biodegradable threads are used to gently lift and tighten the skin.
  • Ultrasound: Special ultrasound devices can also be used to stimulate the formation of new collagen. However, several treatments over a longer period of time are recommended.
  • A healthy lifestyle: Last but not least, a balanced diet, sufficient fluid intake, non-smoking and sun protection make a fundamental contribution to skin health.
