A guide to the mid facelift

A guide to the mid faceliftWhen it comes to facial cosmetic surgery, as with other aesthetic procedures, it’s a case of horses for courses. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all theory: there are so many factors in the air (including what the client wants, and what the practitioner can do, to name but two), that a successful procedure can’t be anything but a truly bespoke service.

However, there are treatments that are so good at what they do that we can’t help but refer them to clients, and the mid facelift is one of them.

No half measures – just a rejuvenated look

While the name of the procedure may suggest a facelift that isn’t as complete as others, that’s not the case: while the standard facelift is usually targeted on improving the jawline and neck area, a mid facelift concentrates on the upper cheek area.

As we age, the fatty tissue over the cheekbones begin to sag and succumb to gravity, resulting in less prominent cheekbones and a droopy fold of skin and fat between the nose and cheek. This produces the knock-on effects of baggier lower eyelids and an alteration of the appearance of the lower cheek.

What does a mid facelift procedure entail?

There are many different techniques that can be drawn upon, but the goal of all mid facelifts is to make a series of minimally invasive incisions which allow the droopy tissue to be lifted up over the cheekbone, thus giving the cheeks an elevated, youthful-looking appearance. The number of incisions will depend on the technique used, and most clients will be able to return to work after a week or so.

One of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the cosmetic surgeon’s armoury, a mid facelift can really take years off the face, and restore your cheekbones back to their former glory. For more information on booking a consultation, consult our facial surgery page.
