Should I have a mid-face lift or a traditional facelift? What is the difference? Indeed, these questions could be very hard for you to answer if you are a newcomer to the plastic surgery world.
All you know is that you look at the mirror, and you see your sagging cheeks, hollow eyes, and your youth going out the window. If this is your case, keep reading, and we will tell you everything you need to know about the mid-facelift procedure.
What Is the Mid-Face Area?
This is the face area that goes below the bottom eyelids, across the cheekbones, down to the upper lip. That’s why the mid-facelift is also known as the “cheek lift.”
When you start to age, you can notice sagging of the cheeks and hollowed under-eyes. These flattened drooping cheeks give you a tired look that could easily be fixed with a mid-face lift surgery!
Additionally, this procedure could help you with problematic areas, such as the nasolabial folds, which are the lines formed between the sides of the nose, all the way through the corner of the mouth.
Also, if you have a pronounced tear trough, which is the deep groove between the lower eyelid and upper cheek, with a mid-face lift, your surgeon could create a smooth transition in the under-eye area for a more youthful appearance.
The main goal of this procedure is to recover the natural curves and fullness of the cheeks through a repositioning of soft tissues of the mid-face area. No more sagging eyes and drooping cheeks.
