What is a mid-facelift?

The main goal of a mid-facelift is to elevate the cheeks upward, creating a more youthful appearance. Some surgeons will enhance the malar and submalar regions with fat injections that will give a more natural appearance. The incisions are normally made in the temporal region. Other areas that may be improved include the lower eyelids to the outer lip. The structures of the mid-facelift include the skin, fat, and muscle. The approach can also include incision under the eyelid. The lift will normally advance the cheek tissue upward and outward which can rejuvenate the mid-face. The deeper the lift, the greater the swelling and post-operative recovery time.
