As we get older, we can expect some changes in the way that the muscles, skin and bone structure in our face appear. For example, as we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity. The result of this is a haggard appearance. We may notice that our eyelids start to sag down, we lose facial volume and we just start looking older.
A mid-face lift is designed to give you that smooth, youthful appearance again. It addresses the areas underneath your eyes, your lower eyelids and especially your cheeks. A mid-face lift may be a good idea for an individual who has already used non-invasive procedures, such as dermal fillers and BOTOX®, to address some of these issues, and now they realize that these non-invasive procedures are not producing the results that they want.
A candidate for a mid-face lift surgery is someone who is not satisfied with the way their face looks around their eyes, their nose or the corners of their mouth. It is perfect for an individual who is happy with the way they look from their mouth down, but have problems with how they look from their nose up.
As with all surgical procedures, the best candidate for a mid-face lift is healthy and does not have any conditions that impede them from healing after surgery. It is important that all patients be emotionally healthy as well. They should want to get a mid-face lift not to impress others, but instead because they are personally unsatisfied with the way that they look and want to make a change.
During the mid-face lift procedure, the fat, cheek skin and muscle tissue can be adjusted. Incisions are typically made inside the eyelid. The goal is to pull up the mid-face, thereby smoothing out the skin. You should expect a little bit of downtime as you recover from the procedure. However, once you have fully healed, you won’t believe what a difference this procedure can make in your overall appearance.
The details of each mid-face lift procedure vary from patient to patient, since each individual is unique.
