Mid Face Lift

Mid-face lift, also known as cheek lift, is performed to provide the complaint of sagging of the cheeks and surrounding area, which is almost one of the first signs of reclining.

Mid Face Lift

During a mid facelift, the skin from the upper lip to the eyelids is tightened, resulting in more youthful-looking skin. A facelift can make the face seem younger and the under eye area appear less sunken. Neither the jaw line nor the brows are addressed in this procedure, which is referred to as a mid face lifting surgery.
The sagging of soft tissues in the aging process negatively affects the appearance of the lower eyelid and the central region of the face. The mid face is the central region of the face, which coincides with the nose and just below the eyes. Individuals with strong bone structure are resistant to mid face aging. Individuals with weak bone structure or weak adhesion strength of soft tissue to bone are prone to mid face aging.

When and Why Mid Face Lift is Necessary

Mid-face aging is manifested by symptoms such as a dimpling in the transition between the lower eyelid and cheek, the appearance of under-eye bags, the clarification of tear ducts, and the decrease in upper cheek fullness. During the aging process, loss of volume and sagging in the mid-face area can be resolved with mid-face lift surgeries. While a facelift emphasizes one side of the face, mid facelift surgery focuses on the middle part of the face to repair wrinkles and folds that appear as well as under-eye bags and dimples in the upper cheeks. To address specific aging-related issues, a mid-facelift is usually performed on adults in their 30s and 40s. Before surgery, you should be in good physical and mental health and ideally not a smoker or be willing to quit smoking.

How Mid Face Lift Works

As the name suggests, a mid face lift involves lifting and repositioning facial tissues in their new position. Our internationally renowned surgeons use special tools to strengthen the cheekbones. The scalp is cut and sewn properly according to the hair roots, so that there are no unsightly scars. After the operation, a younger appearance occurs and the rim grooves disappear. The surgery can be done briefly in a single day. However, the time may be longer depending on whether more surgery is needed.

What is Mid Face Lift / Cheek Lift?

Mid-face lift, also known as cheek lift, is performed to provide the complaint of sagging of the cheeks and surrounding area, which is almost one of the first signs of reclining. For many people, Face Lift may not be able to fully cure the upper cheek and lower eyelid region of the face, which usually sags like hanging over lip with age. Face lift usually targets lower 1/3 of the face and aiming to correct the jowl, as well as the sagged mouth corners. However, the mid face lift operation is a procedure that is done by targeting the middle 1/3 of the face.
Repositioning the fat pad on the cheek (called the malar fat pad) provides fullness to the eyes and cheeks. The healing period of the Mid Face Lift surgery, which is much more permanent than the cheek fillers procedure that we try to do the same effects on a scale, is much faster than the face lift surgery.

Different techniques or one way?

The aim is to provide the former position of the malar fat pad which causes nasolabial groove deeper by sagging towards to it. This malar fat pad can be repositioned thorough the lower eyelid cut or through cut made in scalp on temple area. Since temple scalp region is far from mid face, endoscopes can be used in this approach and called Endoscopic Mid Face Lift. These two approaches aim to lift all the tissues in cheek area upwards. These two methods are surgery and I perform them under general anesthesia. If you do not want to have any surgery performed under general anesthesia, it can also be done under local anesthesia with French Suspension Thread Application for Mid-Face and Face Lift Procedure.

How long does this procedure last?

The durability of the classical or endoscopic surgical procedures performed either through an incision made in the lower eyelid or through an incision made in the temple scalp area is approximately 4-5 years, depending on the lifestyle and hazardous habits of the people. But I have to admit here, thanks to the technology which has been developed in the last period, we have begun to achieve an average of 2-3 years with French Suspension Thread Application for Mid-Face and Face Lift Procedure.

Surgery/Application and Early period after surgery/application

Whether it is done with surgery or using French Suspension Threads, there will be some limitation of movement of cheek and surrounding areas for a while (smiling, chewing, yawning etc).
After surgery, swelling and bruising are inevitable, but not too much. For the first week the mid face region will be supported with the help of small bandages. It is important not to lie on your side till end of second week. Pain is not a serious complaint after these procedures.
