The K Lift is a anatomic based injection technique developed by Dr KK Chew using HA dermal fillers for midface Rejuvenation. Mid Facial Aging is directly related to changes in the periorbital region and cheeks.
The midface conveys the appearance of a heart with the point of the heart at the Chin. Aging changes in the midface namely volume deflation / descent and degeneration of the skin and underlying tissues results in a inverted heart or pear shaped appearance.
The K Lift focuses on restoring the volume loss associated with fat pad deflation and strengthening the anchoring ligament complex .

- The first cc of filler used is typically a gel of high lifting capacity like Restylane Lyft .
