Personal Data

Understanding the Mid Face Lift

A mid-face lift, also known as a cheek lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to rejuvenate the middle third of the face by addressing sagging tissue, deep lines, and volume loss. It involves elevating and tightening the underlying facial muscles, fat pads, and skin to create a smoother, more defined contour. 

Complementary Procedures

During a mid face lift, patients often opt for additional procedures to address other specific concerns. Common complementary treatments include dermal fillers to add volume, chemical peels to improve skin texture, or eyelid surgery to improve the appearance of droopy or puffy eyes.

Mid Face Lift vs. Regular Facelifts

Regular facelifts or rhytidectomy target the lower two-thirds of the face, primarily focusing on the jawline, neck, and chin. In contrast, a mid-face lift concentrates on the central region of the face, specifically addressing the cheekbone area, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. This makes it an ideal option for individuals who want to revitalize their mid-face region without undergoing a full facelift.

The advantages of a mid face lift over a regular facelift include:

  • Less invasive than a traditional facelift
  • Smaller incisions and scarring
  • Faster recovery time
  • More subtle, natural-looking results
  • Can be paired with additional procedures
  • The cost of mid face lift is generally more affordable

However, there are also some potential drawbacks to consider:

  • May not be suitable for those with significant sagging or drooping in the lower face
  • Results may have a shorter duration compared to a traditional facelift
  • May require additional procedures to achieve desired outcomes

Ideal Candidates

A mid-face lift is suitable for people who have moderate to severe signs of aging in the middle third of the face, such as sagging cheeks, droopy eyelids, or deep nasolabial folds. A good candidate for a mid face lift should also:

Be in good physical and mental health

Have realistic expectations and a positive attitude

Be a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking before and after the surgery

If you think you are a good candidate for a mid-face lift, or if you want to learn more about the procedure, please contact us today to schedule a consultation. We will be happy to answer your questions and help you decide if a mid face lift is right for you.

How a Mid-Face Lift is Performed

A mid face lift can be performed using different techniques. One of the most common techniques is the endoscopic midface lift, which involves making small incisions in the scalp, temples, and inside the mouth. Through these incisions, the surgeon inserts a thin tube with a camera (an endoscope) and special instruments to lift and reposition the cheek fat pads and the underlying muscles. The incisions are closed with sutures or staples.

Another technique is the midface thread lift. This method is employed by inserting thin, dissolvable threads with tiny cones or barbs under the skin through small punctures. The threads are then pulled to lift and suspend the cheek tissue to create a subtle lift. The threads dissolve over time and stimulate collagen production for longer results.

Recovery and Results

In general, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days, which can be managed with ice packs, pain medication, and antibiotics. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a week, but they should avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and smoking for at least four weeks. The final results of a mid face lift can be seen after three to six months, when the swelling and bruising have subsided and the tissues have settled.

A mid-face lift can provide long-lasting results, typically for about five to ten years, depending on the patient's skin quality, lifestyle, and aging process. To maintain the results, patients are advised to follow a healthy diet, use sunscreen, and have regular skin care treatments.

Will I have visible scarring after a midface lift?

Incisions for a midface lift are typically well-hidden, either within the scalp, inside the lower eyelid, or just below the eyelashes, meaning any scarring is hidden. Your surgeon will also advise you on recovery best practises to ensure a smooth recovery process.

Can a midface lift correct under-eye hollows or dark circles?

Yes, a midface lift can address under-eye hollows or dark circles by repositioning sagging tissues and restoring volume to the midface region. However, in some cases, additional treatments such as injectable fillers may be recommended to further enhance under-eye contour and reduce the appearance of hollowing.

Risks and Complications

Like any surgical intervention, mid-face lifts carry certain risks and potential side effects, including bleeding, infection, nerve damage, and asymmetry. Choosing a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon minimizes these risks.
