Midface Lift

The midface area can be a place of major cosmetic concern for many patients, as it is vulnerable to wrinkles and loose skin. These factors can lead to a sense of looking aged or tired, even from a young age. But with a midface lift in Meridian at the Leyngold Institute for Plastic Surgery, you can see a dramatic boost in your facial aesthetic.

What Is a Midface lift?

A midface lift, also called a cheek lift, is a type of cosmetic surgery that focuses on correcting midface sagging. This can be caused by a number of factors, including age, weight loss, and gravity. But whatever has caused this cosmetic concern, this procedure could be the solution for restoring your facial aesthetic. When performed by an experienced surgeon, a cheek lift can provide impressive boosts in your facial aesthetic, resulting in a more refined, rejuvenated, and elegant appearance overall.

What Are the Benefits of a Cheek Lift?

Rhinoplasty can improve aesthetic issues of the nose, such as its size, shape, or contour. In some cases, rhinoplasty can also improve breathing difficulties caused by structural problems in the nose. With rhinoplasty, you may experience improved confidence in your appearance and enhanced self-image. One reason patients also love this procedure is that it can provide permanent results that stand the test of time.

Is a Midface Lift Right for Me?

Midface lift can provide a wide range of benefits for patients who are interested in facial rejuvenation. However, it is important to understand that this is a surgical procedure and, as such, there are some restrictions for an ideal candidate. We tend to recommend that patients be in overall good health before their procedure and avoid smoking. These prerequisites help ensure a successful surgery while also allowing you to recover more smoothly. During your consultation one of our experienced surgeon will help you determine if a midface lift is the best option for you and your specific goals.

Procedure Overview

During your midface lift in Meridian, you will receive anesthetic to remain fully comfortable from start to finish. Once we are sure you are comfortable and ready, your surgeon will make incisions along hidden and targeted areas of the face to ensure that any scarring remains hidden from sight. He will then reposition and tighten the deeper layers of the cheek before repositioning the skin. The incisions will be closed with sutures.
The entire process can take about 1-2 hours, but this varies depending on your individual treatment plan. If you are combining surgeries, this can also affect the duration of your procedure. Still, you should be able to return home once everything is finished where you can rest and focus on recovering.

What Is the Recovery Like for a Cheek Lift?

You can expect some swelling and bruising after your procedure, which should mostly subside within a week or two. You may also experience some numbness, but this is temporary and should go away eventually. We will provide you with specific instructions to follow during your recovery to help you heal properly and reduce the risk for complications. This includes things like sleeping with your head slightly elevated and avoiding certain activities.
In general, patients can return to work and other daily activities within two weeks. However, you should avoid strenuous activities and exposure to the sun for at least four weeks or until you receive approval from your surgeon.

When Can I See Results?

Some patients may see initial results right away, but it can take up to several months for the full effects of your midface lift to be visible. This is because it takes time for all the swelling and bruising to dissipate to let your full results shine through. Once everything has settled down, you should be able to enjoy your refreshed and rejuvenated appearance for years. Keep in mind that a healthy lifestyle and a good skin care routine will provide lasting benefits and help your results stay fresh.
