Face Lift (mid)

Mid face lift (cheeks area)

As people age and their skin loses elasticity and tone, the cheeks and eyelids tend to sag, creating a tired or haggard look. Mid facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that restores a smooth, youthful look to the lower eyelids and cheeks. Below you will learn who is a candidate for mid facelift surgery, the details of the surgical procedure, and the cost associated with the procedure.

+ SURGICAL 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.

Finally, the incisions are sutured and the healing process begins. After a mid face lift, typical recovery time is about one week, possibly shorter when endoscopic mid face lift techniques are used. Because this procedure is more focused and less invasive than a standard face lift or deep plane face lift, mid face lift patients experience quicker results with less bruising and swelling.

+ PRE-OPERATIVE CARE

During your consultation the doctor will perform a thorough examination of your face, taking into consideration all factors. He analyzes your skin type and how the upper, middle and lower parts of your face as well as your eyes may contribute to your aging appearance. After this, the doctor uses digital photography and computer imaging software to simulate how you will look after surgery.

Prior to surgery all patients receive a complete physical examination and are started on vitamin supplementation and homeopathic therapies to enhance healing after surgery. Research has shown that surgical results are improved when these regimens are part of your surgical treatment.

+ POST OPERATIVE CARE AND RECOVERY

Typically, it takes patients about two weeks to recover. The first-week activity limitations are pretty absolute. The second week is somewhat relative because patients can go back to doing some low-level activities like an exercise bike.
Most people look pretty good at about two weeks. There tends to be a bit of a prolonged swelling period with mid-face lifting.

It can take four to six weeks for a surgical swelling to really dissipate.

+ RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

The side effects are the same as those of a traditional facelift – swelling, bruising, inflammation and pain. In rare cases, there might also be nerve damage, and sometimes a second procedure may be needed to make corrections to treated areas. In general, people can go back to work within a week.
