What is Mid Facelift?

Mid-facelift is a procedure designed to enhance one’s facial appearance, specifically the region between the nose and the eyelids. The mid-facelift focuses on a triangular area formed between the two corners of the eyes and the corner of the mouth. By working on the face’s deeper layers, the surgeon can reposition the underlying fat and muscles, so that the middle of the face is pulled up and the results look more natural. It also takes the tension off the flesh.

By undergoing a mid-facelift procedure, it can help restore youthfulness to one’s appearance. How this procedure is performed is the surgeon makes a deep incision into the muscle of the face. The surgeon may also use an endoscope to perform the mid-facelift. The endoscope is a viewing instrument that allows a surgeon to see internal images of the body through very small incisions. With an endoscope, small incisions may be placed in areas where correction is most needed. If the muscles and skin of the mid-face need to be smoothed and tightened, incisions may be hidden in the lower eyelid and in the upper gumline.
