Mid face lift surgery targets the area around the nose, eyes, and corners of the mouth. These procedures are particularly effective for patients seeking cheek elevation when the neck and areas beneath the chin do not require lifting.
The mid facelift is able to correct under-eye bags, hollowness in the upper cheeks, and prominent nasal folds.
During a mid face lift, small incisions are made hidden in the lower lash line. 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 the operation:
Cool the eye area
Keep your head raised in order to reduce swelling
Sutures are removed after 5 – 7 days
Avoid strenuous activities such as sports for 4 weeks
