The Mid Face Lift or Cheek Lift restores the natural convex shape of the lower eyelid and cheek to correct puffiness of the lower eyelids, an indentation of the upper cheek and a prominent naso-labial (nose to lip) fold, or to minimize the look of big eyes. The mid face lift provides a natural and youthful appearance without an overdone or pulled look.
Usually 40s and older, although can be done younger for inherited traits.
A small incision is made inside the lower eyelid or through the mouth to provide direct visualization of the cheek and lower eyelid. The tissues are replaced to a more aesthetic position, and the incisions are closed. Often times a cheek or tear trough implant is placed simultaneously.

We thank you for your concern and care.”
Surgical Time and Recovery:
Mid Face Lift surgery takes 3 to 4 hours using local and tumescent anesthesia, and IV or oral sedation. Sutures usually dissolve within a week. Most patients are back to light work after 2 weeks.
