Mid-facelifts, also known as cheek lifts, transforms the facial shape by elevating the cheeks and transferring fat for restored volume. The procedure works to tighten the skin and lift the underlying muscle tissues to create a youthful appearance. Wrinkles, sagging of the skin, and lost volume can all be restored with mid facelifts to reverse the signs of aging. The surgery also works to blend the lower lid and cheek junction for a youthful appearance. The treatment is less invasive than a full facelift with fewer incisions that are made and a shorter recovery process. Mid facelifts also eliminate nasolabial folds that have formed by tightening the skin.
Candidates for the surgery are men and women who have heaviness below the cheeks or a sunken skin below the eyes. Patients must be over the age of 18 and have realistic goals with the treatment.
The average cost of the procedure is $4,000 to $10,000 in the U.S., UK, and Australia. This includes surgeon fees, facility fee, anesthesia, and a possible hospital stay.
During a mid facelift, general anesthesia is given to the patient. Small and deep incisions will be made in front of each ear near the hairline. The plastic surgeon will adjust the muscle tissue and fat while pulling up the skin on the face to create a smooth appearance. The incisions are then sutured and dressing is used to cover the incisions as the healing process begins.
The recovery process requires patients to rest for seven to 10 days without exercising or participating in strenuous activities. Bruising and inflammation may develop on the face, which should be iced with cold compressions during the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. It's important to take time off of work and avoid high levels of activity. The final results will be visible after the swelling and bruising subsides.
