If you want to look younger, a mid-facelift might be the best solution for you. The mid-facelift is a procedure adopted by surgeons around ten years ago. It is a popular alternative to the regular facelift, which is often better suited to older patients.

The mid-facelift involves a complex surgical technique where the central portion of the face is lifted, resulting in lasting mid-face rejuvenation. If you have been experiencing a mild to moderate degree of facial aging, you may be right for this procedure.

What Is a Mid-Facelift?

As people grow older, their cheeks flatten and sag, and they develop moderate to deep lines and wrinkles around their nose and mouth. People who are experiencing these types of mid-face aging are the ideal candidates for the mid-facelift procedure.

This surgery is often also called a cheek lift, because it involves correcting aging issues around the cheeks, including sagging malar fat pads.

A mid-facelift is known to achieve long-term correction of mid-face aging issues. It is usually less expensive than a normal facelift and has become increasingly popular in the last decade.

Who Can Undergo a Mid-Facelift?

The procedure for the mid-facelift depends on your facial features. The skeletal structure of your face will be the most important in determining whether you are a suitable candidate to undergo a mid-facelift. Your facial volume will also determine if it’s the right procedure for you. If you have full cheekbones, a mid-facelift might not be the proper choice.

Your health condition is an important factor to consider when evaluating your suitability for a mid-facelift. It is important that you are a healthy individual. If you have a history of taking medication and are in poor health, it is advised that you do not undergo a mid-facelift due to increased risk of potential complications.

Things to Consider Before Surgery

Asking previous patients, friends, or family who have been through similar procedures can be very helpful if you’re considering this procedure. They will be able to give you a good idea of what to expect on a personal level.

You will need to inform the people closest to you that you will be undertaking this surgery. Bring someone with you during the surgical procedure, preferably a family member. This will ensure that you have emotional support during the surgery and someone to drive you home afterwards. It will be necessary to take some time off from your daily commitments.
