Midface lift

Midface lift

A midface lift is a surgical procedure designed to correct the position of the soft tissue of the face in relation to the underlying skeleton.  Over time, the cheek area flattens and the creases next to the nose and mouth deepen. Additionally, the lower eyelids tend to pull down and become longer vertically. A dark trough may form just below the eyelid. Eventually, this trough cuts across the cheek, dividing the area into two unequal mounds instead of one smooth mound. As a result of these changes, the eyes and face appear older and more fatigued.

Returning the descended cheek back to its original position makes the cheek area fuller and makes the eyes appear softer and more youthful. The transition of the contour from the cheek to the lower eyelid becomes smooth. A facelift does not have as much effect on the middle of the face, so a facelift is often performed in conjunction with a midface lift. A midface lift is a powerful procedure that improves the appearance of both the cheek and the lower eyelid.

Mid Facelift Procedure

During a mid face lift, small, deep incisions are made in the muscle tissue of the face. If the surgeon so chooses, an endoscope (a small, camera-like device) is inserted through the incisions to view the procedure internally. Once the incisions are made, the doctor adjusts the fat and muscle tissue, pulling up the middle of the face to smooth and tighten the skin.
