What is a Mid-Facelift?

The Mid-Face gently improves the eye area, the nasolabial fold and the upper cheek. A characteristic of youth is high mid facial curves together with a short lower eyelid vertical height.

Signs of aging occur in this area due to the loss of facial fat. We have pockets of fat that run horizontally across our face, but as we age, the fat deflates, and we start to see vertical folds occurring in our face. A Mid-Facelift surgery improves the sagging cheeks and the lines running from the nose to the mouth to return a youthful appearance.

A Mid-Facelift is a relatively new treatment. Incisions are made on the side of the eyes to gain access and reposition the cheek muscles and natural fatty areas by pulling them up.

Who is a good candidate for Mid-Facelift surgery?

If you are in otherwise good health and you have realistic expectations about dealing with the appearance  – you are a good candidate.

Will I continue to age after facelift surgery?

No treatment or surgery can totally stop the effects of aging. A facelift can restore a youthful appearance, however continued stretching and settling of the skin and soft tissues of the skin will occur. Thus after surgery, patients will continue to age, but retain the improvement gained from their procedure. Facelift surgery will not cause a patient to age more quickly.
