The face is the most noticeable part of your body. It defines how the world around you perceives the way you look. Because of that, the facelift is a very popular cosmetic procedure. With advances in cosmetic surgery, new techniques have been developed that take the facelift to the next level.
One of these is the mid-facelift, an exciting new way to improve facial appearance and skin tightness. To schedule a mid-facelift consultation, call (707) 604-3600 or contact Dr. Michele Zormeier online.
What is a Mid-Facelift?
A mid-facelift, sometimes referred to as a midface lift or a cheek lift, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to elevate and improve facial skin. While a mid-facelift is often performed alongside a traditional facelift, the two procedures can be performed separately.
People receive a mid-facelift to alleviate:
- Heaviness below the cheeks
- Bagginess under the eyes
- Prominent nasolabial folds
- “Droopy cheeks”
These issues stem from the toll that gravity and age take on facial skin.
How Does the Mid-Facelift work?
One of the most exciting aspects of the mid-facelift is that it can counteract some of the earlier signs of age, before a full facelift may be needed. The mid-facelift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. During the procedure:
- Several tiny incisions are made around the hairline and ear.
- The soft tissue that forms the cheeks is lifted.
- This tissue is suspended in a higher position using a suture or resorbable anchor.
The end result is a more youthful mid-face area. Many people elect to have a mid-facelift performed at the same time as a traditional facelift in order to minimize the number of necessary incision and downtime.
The mid-facelift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, albeit with a follow-up appointment the day after. Some minor bruising and swelling is to be expected, and will subside in time. Mid-facelift recovery is generally considered to be minimal.
