A mid facelift is the best option for patients who have sagging cheeks but no jowls or serious neck wrinkles. The procedure tightens the skin around the cheeks and reduces the nasolabial folds (the lines between the nose and mouth). Mid facelift surgery restores volume and definition in the cheeks and lower eyelid area, correcting tear troughs (sunken under eye areas) and creating a more youthful look.
This surgery offers results that are more subtle than a traditional facelift. Among the other procedures that can complement a mid facelift are blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), chin surgery, BOTOX®, and dermal fillers.
What You Should Know about a Mid Facelift
Mid face lift surgery can be done under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis at our fully accredited facility in Northern Virginia. The procedure takes about 1-1/2 hours.
Our skilled board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Heppe & Dr. Bautista, and Board Eligible plastic surgeon Dr. Aflaki make the smallest incisions possible, usually under the hairline above the ear and sometimes also in the lower eyelid area. The skin is then tightened for a natural, younger appearance.
Mid Facelift Recovery
Recovery from a mid face lift is faster than from a traditional face lift, and most patients are off work for about a week. You can expect some minimal bruising and swelling, but you can take pain medications to ease any discomfort.
