What is mid face lift?

A mid-face lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure intended to lift and rejuvenate the mid-facial region of the face. This region includes the cheeks, nose, and upper and lower eyelids. The goal of this procedure is to improve the appearance of the mid-face area and give the patient an overall more youthful, refreshed look. Mid-face lifts can be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery. During the procedure, a surgeon will make small incisions around the hairline and ears and then reposition the underlying skin and soft tissue to create a more youthful, lifted appearance. The recovery period usually takes about a week, during which time patients may experience some swelling and bruising. The results of a mid-face lift can last for several years with proper skin care and maintenance.
