What is Mid-Face Lift?

Mid-face lift, also known as a cheek lift, is the surgical procedure and type of facelift to reverse the effects of aging and gravity on the area between the upper mouth and eyes.

As one ages, the mid-face area starts dropping and facial fat deposits start losing volume. These result in deep nasolabial lines, sunken and doubled cheeks, and an overall tired appearance. Mid-face lift operation addresses these issues by tightening the facial muscles in the area and manipulating the fat pads under the skin. Similar to other face lift procedures, incision lines are placed by the hairline to make them less visible. 

Mid-face lift operation does not target jawline or forehead areas, thus it can be a great option for people who want a fresh and youthful appearance with prominent cheekbones and softer lines, without having any work done on the lower face or forehead areas.

Is Mid-Face Lift Painful?

Mid-face lifts are commonly performed under general anesthetic. The operation takes approximately two hours, and patients need to stay in the hospital overnight.

Pain is not a major problem with facial surgery, and complications arising from facelifts are never usually very serious. However, all patients need to be aware that there is a chance of sustaining damage to the facial nerves. This can cause weakened movement of the eyebrow and lip, although such repercussions are not common and generally improve over several weeks.

Following surgery, patients commonly experience: 

        ●  Feelings of tightness when opening mouth

        ●  Swelling and bruising

        ●  Feeling low and depressed in the first week

        ●  Discomfort at night (sleeping upright with ice packs applied to cheeks is recommended)

Mid-Face Lift Procedure

We mainly prefer to use dissolvable stitches which do not need to be removed. After seven to fourteen days patients can think about returning to work or going out in public. Within four weeks, you will be feeling more like yourself, albeit a younger-looking version. However, patients are advised not to judge the final result of a face-lift for about six to nine months.

While the mid-face lift softens the nasolabial lines, it does not completely remove fine wrinkle lines, these require resurfacing of the skin. 

This procedure can be carried out at the same time as other facial cosmetic procedures: blepharoplasty ( for the eyelids), correction of drooping outer eyebrows & correction of “ crow’s feet ( temporal lift ) correction of a drooping & or wrinkled forehead ) Forehead or brow lift, which may be by a conventional or endoscopic technic.

The mid-face lift can also be combined with lower-face lift and neck lift operations.

The aim of this article is to give you a general information about the surgical intervention in question. You need to make more research about possible complications and risks of this selected procedure in order to make an informed decision. Please note that complications occur more frequently with patients who are obese, smoke, and have a history or lung or other chronic underlying medical conditions.

Smokers are recognized to have a significantly higher risk of post operative wound healing problems with a subsequently higher potential of infection as well as operative and post operative bleeding. Patients should discontinue smoking for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. Although it helps to stop smoking before and after surgery, this does not completely eliminate the increased risks resulting from long­ term smoking. Smoking also has a long term adverse effect on the skin and ageing process.
