Mid Face Lift
Gravity and the aging process can cause the mid face region to become droopy and void of the volume that is present in youth. The downward descent of the mid face tissue exacerbates wrinkles in the lower face and often creates jowls. The mid face lift is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the cheeks and jawline, and is often combined with dermal fillers to create a youthful appearance. The mid face lift is ideal for individuals who are not ready for a full face lift, but still want a refreshed, natural appearing enhancement. For more comprehensive rejuvenation, some individuals may choose to pair the mid face lift with an eyelid lift or another procedure.
Mid Face Lift Goals
If your goal is to rejuvenate your face without having to endure the rigors of a full facelift, a mid face lift might be the right choice for you.
- Elevate the cheeks
- Restore youthful fullness to the mid face
- Lessen the depth of the nasolabial folds that run from the corners of your mouth to up to the nose
- Modestly tighten the jawline
What to Expect
When you come in for your complimentary consultation, you’ll get to discuss your goals for facial rejuvenation in detail. If it’s determined that a mid face lift will help you meet those goals, we will explain how the procedure works and what the recovery process will entail. We may also discuss other procedures or non-surgical treatments to supplement the mid face lift in order to provide you with your best possible result.
Your mid face lift procedure will be done in our on-site surgery center under the care of our own expertly trained and caring staff. The procedure will be done with use of conscious sedation (not general anesthesia), allowing you to relax and recover in comfort of your own home.
The recovery period after your mid face lift entails some mild-moderate discomfort and facial swelling. We will monitor your healing progress and comfort closely during your post-operative period. Altogether, you can expect to return to work and your normal daily life in approximately one to two weeks, though it typically takes six to eight weeks for the majority of the swelling to dissipate.
For many of our patients, the mid face lift is done in conjunction with other procedures as part of a total facial rejuvenation package. These include:
