Mid Face Lift (Mini Lift) by Wave Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Laser Center
The area between your lower eyelids and your mouth is considered the midface. As you age, the effects of gravity, repeated muscle contraction, and lifestyle causes the skin, fat, and muscle to move downwards. When this occurs, the cheeks begin to look saggy or flat, the lower eyelids to become puffy or hollow, and circles begin to appear under the eyes. Also the lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth deepen.
The Endoscopic Mid Facelift restores the natural curves and fullness in the cheeks by moving the entire soft tissues back to its normal position. This is achieved by elevating the soft midface tissue from the bone, repositioning it upward towards the eyes, and fixating it in place until it adheres naturally to the bone. This is achieved by using the Endotine mid face device. This restores cheek volume and establishes more youthful mid face contours. The result will be a natural, revitalized appearance that doesn't appear overdone or “pulled.”
When performed skillfully, a cheek lift will deliver a natural but noticeable improvement. It is frequently performed with other surgeries, such as a lower face lift, eyelid surgery, or a brow lift. However, for many younger patients, under 45 years old, mid face suspension is often a standalone procedure.
During a mid face suspension procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions in the area above the ear or the lower eyelid and in some cases, through the underside of the upper lip. A small endoscope and other instruments are introduced through the incisions to lift the delicate mid face tissues off the cheekbones. Once lifted, these tissues are repositioned upward (toward the eye) and to the side (toward the ear).
Mid face suspension surgery is often performed under IV sedation. Patients typically return home on the same day. Surgical dressings, if used, are removed soon after surgery, and any tissue swelling related to the procedure gradually diminishes.
What is FaceLift Surgery?
If you are bothered by signs of aging in your face, facelift surgery may be right for you. Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:
Rejuvenation procedures typically performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.
What facelifts won’t do:
As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.
Is it right for me?
A facelift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery. Facelift surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires to to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
