A facelift can be performed in one of several ways, each of which addresses specific concerns. Many individuals experience age-related skin sagging or creasing beneath the lower eyelids or near the sides of the nose. A mid-face lift procedure improves the appearance of the skin on the cheeks. It’s accomplished by removing fat and repositioning a bit of muscle tissue beneath the skin. This allows the skin to lay flatter and reduces the amount of creasing or indentation.
We always recommend consulting with us prior to making any choice regarding skin ablation. Everyone is unique in terms of their facial skin. The skin thickness, the amount and location of creasing, and the position and strength of the facial muscles determine which face lift procedure is best.
Correcting Facial Folds And Skin Sagging
Many individuals experience nasolabial folds and skin sagging on the cheeks as they age. In most cases, these problems are corrected by vertical lifting of the skin. In some cases, however, horizontal repositioning of the skin is the correct procedure.
The skin is supported by the tissues of the subcutaneous layers. Fat deposits can build up in these layers, and this causes sagging and dimpling. Below the eyes, the lower lids can begin to sag because the skin is not supported as firmly as when the individual was younger. A mid-face lift can correct all of these problems.
Advantages Of A Mid-Face Lift
This involves surgery, but the procedure is very straightforward and results in smoother skin that shows fewer wrinkles and creases. A minimally invasive mid-face lift of this type can yield positive results that last. This is much more beneficial than skin resurfacing or abrasion techniques that work well but must be repeated at least once per year.
As we age and mature, muscles become weaker, and this also contributes to the problem of sagging and creasing of the skin. A mid-face lift offers a solution to fat build-up that other techniques can’t promise.
