Dealing with the aging process can be a challenge. It is difficult to accept the fact that what you have been accustomed to looking at in the mirror is changing to a face that you do not recognize. You may have tried different cosmetic products to slow down the aging process. However, there comes a point when conservative cosmetic treatments just don’t work.
If your changing facial appearance bothers you enough, you may start to consider some form of plastic surgery. But here again lies another difficult decision. A full facelift is a very invasive procedure. Additionally, a facelift will affect the most notable part of your body. For this reason, before jumping into a full facelift, you may be looking to see if there any other options available. One of the available options includes a midface lift.
The main difference between a midface lift and a traditional facelift is that a midface lift focuses on the cheeks and the areas around your mouth and eyes. A midface lift ultimately addresses the middle part of the face. The middle part of the face is usually not affected by a traditional facelift. Many say that a midface lift creates a more natural appearance.
Performing a midface lift requires a level of technical and aesthetic expertise that not all surgeons have. When addressing the middle of the face, the surgeon is dealing with some complicated anatomy. However, our board-certified plastic surgeons know exactly what they are doing when it comes to the midface lift procedure.
Midface lifts have grown in popularity as cosmetic surgeons are finding ways to make facelifts look more natural. A midface lift is a procedure that more patients in their thirties and forties are asking for. They don’t want a full facelift, but they just want to look younger.
The truth is that cosmetic surgery has changed drastically in the past 10 to 15 years. Advances in technology have made it possible for doctors to manipulate deeper facial tissue. This has allowed them to create results that look more natural. Patients walk away from the procedure not looking like they have been operated on.
A midface lift surgery may take between one hour to 90 minutes. Once the procedure is done, the patient will need to recover at home. The surgeon is going to provide detailed instructions on post-surgery care. Most people are able to go back to work within one week after a midface lift.
A midface lift can drastically improve and reduce the signs of aging. To see if this procedure is right for you, visit eSSe Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
