One of the unfortunate effects of aging is changes to the face that can leave you looking tired and worn down. Sagging in the cheeks is one of the first signs of facial aging, and is also one of the most noticeable. A facelift may still seem unnecessary, but you don’t need a full facelift to restore vitality.

Midface Lift Process

While a full facelift usually focuses on the jawline, face and neck, a midface lift focuses on the cheeks—the area between the lower eyelids and the nasolabial folds. In fact, a midface lift is also called a cheek lift. During a midface lift, small incisions are made in the eyelids or in the mouth, so scarring is minimized. Midface lifts can be combined with cheek implants or lower eyelid blepharoplasty.

Good candidates for a midface lift include:

  • Patients who are healthy overall, without any medical conditions that might increase the risk of complications
  • Patients who have sagging cheeks
  • Patients with a hollow appearance under the eyes
  • Patients who want to improve their appearance and have realistic goals
