A midface lift addresses some of the earliest signs of aging: sagging of the cheeks and the lower eyelid area. A midface lift is designed to elevate the fat pad in the cheeks to provide fullness to the cheeks and eyes. A youthful appearance is often characterized by round, full cheeks. Therefore, by adding fullness to the midface area patients are left with a refreshed and rejuvenated look. Results from a mid-face lift are more permanent than injectable solutions, and the recovery time from a midface lift is shorter than a traditional facelift.
As with all facial plastic surgeries, a midface lift is a highly individualized procedure. Dr. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC will take into account one’s facial structure as well as the results that the patient is hoping to achieve before planning out the details of the surgery. Good candidates for a midface lift are those with heaviness in the cheeks, hollowness below the eyes; those who are healthy and do not have medical conditions that can impair healing; as well as those with realistic goals in mind for the improvement of their appearance.
A midface lift is done using minimal incisions around the hairline and ear. The skin and muscle tissue in the cheeks is tightened to smooth the appearance of marionette lines and hollowness below the lower eyelids. The surgery typically lasts around two hours; however, if additional surgeries are being performed at the same time more time will be necessary. A midface lift is considered to be an outpatient surgery with recovery taking between 7-10 days.
