As we get older, gravity and natural biological changes can reduce the vitality of the face. Sagging of the cheeks, in particular, is one of the first and most visible signs of aging. But with a midface lift, this key part of your countenance can be rejuvenated without the need for a full facelift. Manhattan cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman has helped countless New York patients achieve the youthful appearance they want with cosmetic surgery facial procedures.
The Midface Lift Procedure
The midface is the area between the lower eyelids and the nasolabial folds, which are the facial creases that connect the nose to the corners of the mouth. A midface lift is sometimes called a cheek lift.
A midface lift restores vitality to the midface by lifting the cheeks and smoothing smile lines. It helps patients achieve a natural look without undergoing a full facelift. Small incisions are made in the eyelids or in the mouth, so there is practically no visible scarring. Midface lifts are often combined with lower-lid blepharoplasty to revitalize the area around the eyes, or with implants to accentuate the cheeks.
A regular facelift generally focuses on the lower jawline and neck. The midface lift, on the other hand, focuses on the cheeks and aims to elevate them for a more youthful appearance.
Is a Midface Lift right for Me?
A midface lift can reduce puffiness beneath the eyes, improve the contours of the upper cheeks, and correct problems with the nasolabial folds, which are the creases connecting the nose to the corners of the mouth. Good candidates for this procedure include:
- Patients with sagging cheeks
- Patients who have a hollow appearance below the eyes
- Patients who are generally healthy and do not suffer from medical conditions that may increase the risk of complications
- Patients who have realistic goals for the improvement of their appearance
