Why under go
Mid Facelift?

Midface lift is a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure designed to address the signs of ageing in the middle section of the face.


The mid-face area refers to the part of the face below the eyelids and around the cheekbones, down to the upper lip. A midface lift procedure involves restoring the position and prominence of a person’s cheekbones, as well as improving the continuum between the eyelid and cheek.

The tissues over the cheekbones and below the eyelids begin to sag and lose volume with age and the effects of gravity;  this makes the cheeks appear flatter, the lower eyelids hollower, and the nasolabial folds deeper. The  descent of the mid face also causes disjunction between the cheek and lower lid. This all contributes to an older and more tired look.

A mid facelift addresses those changes, making it a popular surgical procedure for people who wish to tackle the signs of aging.  Traditional facelift surgery impacts the lower part of the face and doesn't address the lower eyelid and upper cheek areas of the faces much. The mid face does by elevating the fat pad in the cheek (referred to as the malar fat pad), giving you greater fullness in the eye and cheek areas, which creates a younger, fresher and more rejuvenated appearance.

A mid facelift can't address all problems in the lower eyelids and doesn't improve crow’s feet or fine lines and wrinkles in the mid face area. If any of these are your main concern, a different procedure, like laser resurfacing, may be more worthwhile.
