The Midface Lift is perfect for restoring a more youthful appearance. Also known as a cheek lift, the Midface Lift boosts sagging cheeks and skin around the corners of the mouth. Furrows around the eyes will be smoothed away – you’ll look naturally rested and younger.
So what actually happens?
Our Midface Lifts are performed in our state-of-the-art surgical suites under general or local anesthesia. It takes one to two hours. You’ll return to the comfort of your own home to recover on the same day as the surgery.
Midface Lift procedures vary according to the patients needs, there are varying techniques used depending on the nature of the lift.
During a Midface Lift procedure your doctor will elevate the fat pads of your cheeks improving their contour and enhancing cheek and under eye fullness. Because the cheeks are lifted vertically, there is no pulled or stretched look, instead patients get a natural, refreshed look and feel.
What about after surgery?
There’ll be some bruising and swelling for approximately two weeks. There will also be mild discomfort, itching and possibly some numbness at the incision sites as they begin to heal. Patients are able to wear makeup immediately and are expected to be back to full activity within six weeks.
