The mid facelift: a guide

mid facelift guideWe come across many new clients who seek rejuvenation, but are unsure about what they need, exactly. While we always provide a bespoke service, we’re always happy to recommend the right procedure, and we’re aware that certain treatments are so good that we can’t help but refer them to potential clients. One of those is the mid facelift.

Why would I need a mid facelift?

As far as we’re concerned, the only downside to the mid facelift is its name: while it may imply to some potential clients an incomplete, starter-level procedure, it’s actually a facelift that’s not targeted at the usual areas. While a standard facelift is usually geared towards improving the jawline and neck area, the mid facelift concentrates on the upper cheek area.

There’s a very good reason for that: as we start to age, the fatty tissue over the cheekbones begin to succumb to gravity, which reduces the prominence of the cheekbones and creates a droopy fold of skin and fat between the nose and cheek – which gives the impression of baggier lower eyelids and an alteration of the appearance of the lower cheek. These are the first signs of facial aging: the mid facelift is the solution to all of those maladies.

What does a mid facelift procedure entail?

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 restoring 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.
