Midface Lift

Natural beauty woman portraitThis procedure is carried out to lift up the facial skin and muscles to give the face a smoother and younger appearance. As we age our facial muscles slacken and loose elasticity, thus creating lines and folds. The effect of gravity, exposure to the sun and stress also show on our face, so as folds and lines deepen. In addition drooping occurs at the sides of the mouth. The mid facelift has more focus on improvement from the cheekbone to the upper lip area. Due to ageing the fullness of the cheeks are lost, with skin and underlying fat starting to sag from the lower eyelids. This procedure can be carried out with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, (eye bags reduction), and also in conjunction with a standard facelift. Another benefit is that there may be some decrease in the creases, which extend from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). On some occasions softening of the jowls maybe seen.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A midface lift is normally performed under general anaesthetic. A 1 night stay is required in hospital with postoperative recuperation time needed. The face feels stiff to begin with after the operation and will appear puffy, but after approximately 2-3 weeks social activities and work can begin again. There is scarring after a midface lift, which are an extension of the lower eye bag reduction surgery. Wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal fillers maybe contemplated as supplementary treatment at a later date in some patients for maximum effect. Further information can be obtained on the day of consultation.
