Can I use Botox to lift cheeks?

I have good volume in my cheeks, but I have hollows under my eyes and my cheeks are a bit saggy. Is it possible to just "lift" the cheeks rather than "fill" them?

Botox will not lift cheeks. If there is hollowness under your eyes and saggy cheeks, your best course of action would most likely be to use fillers to enhance the volume in these places.

Botox will not "lift" your cheeks or correct the sagging. Using fillers under your eyes will minimize the hollow appearance. And injecting fillers laterally in your temples and over your cheekbones would also be a consideration. Obviously, a facelift or mini-facelift would be another possible solution.

Botox would not be an appropriate choice to give you more fullness in the cheeks. You may want to consider a dermal filler like Juvederm. Botox only helps with muscle relaxation, so therefore placing around your cheek area would relax the muscles in that area, not lift them.

No I don't think that's possible. However, you can fill these areas without making them look "overfilled" and this will lift up the whole cheeks. The injection technique is what makes this possible.

Botox will not lift the cheeks. Filler is best option short of a surgical procedure.

No. Botox cannot provide lift to the cheeks. Based on what you are
describing, we would probably recommend Restylane for the hollows under
the eyes and Radiesse to fill or lift at the cheekbones. Botox will not
accomplish this.
