Mid Face Lift
The mid facelift is a procedure to improve the look of the cheekbone area as well as the area underneath the eyelids. It restores fullness to these areas and this makes the patient look younger. Because this procedure corrects some of the early signs of ageing, we find it gives a “refreshing” appearance to somebody who had started the ageing process but does not yet feel the need for a full facelift which also involves the forehead, neck and jaw line.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia. A small incision is made in the scalp skin above the ear and the skin is elevated to the level of the cheekbone. Another incision is made either inside the mouth or in the lower eyelid where a standard lower eyelid incision would be made.
Many people in their late thirties to late forties can have marked improvements in their appearance with a procedure whose scars are hidden in the hairline.
