A mid facelift is an amazing option for restoring the beauty of your face without having to deal with the larger incisions and longer recovery period that comes with a traditional facelift. At the Mandell-Brown Center, we offer the mid facelift procedure for women and men in the Cincinnati and Dalton areas.

Mid Facelift Candidates

Have cheek jowling but not ready for a full face lift? Welcome the mid facelift as the procedure of choice. The mid facelift is ideal for excess or sagging tissues in the cheeks and along the jaw line. The typical patient is in their 30′s to 40′s and just needs a little “tuck” of the tissues.

What Is a Mid Facelift?

The mid facelift is an office based procedure that can rejuvenate the sagging by a mini-incision by the ear to elevate the tissues and liposuction the fat. In contrast to the full facelift, in which the incision goes behind the ear to help elevate the neck sagging, the mid facelift only addresses the cheek sagging.

Dr. Mark Mandell-Brown was the first plastic surgeon to bring this procedure to the Dayton and Cincinnati areas. Now, most surgeons offer this, a testimony to Dr. Mandell-Brown’s foresight into adding this procedure to the standard facelift.

Mid Facelift Recovery

The recovery period for a mini facelift is rapid and many patients can be back at work in 4 to 5 days. There may be some mild swelling and bruising around the face that will subside over time. There is relatively little pain that can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Most patients are told “they look more relaxed” or “more youthful.”
