Mid-Face Lift

Mid-Face Lift

Page Updated:

Mid-face lift surgery is a facial rejuvenation procedure that addresses visible signs of aging in the middle of the face. While full facelift surgery can target the entire face from jaw to forehead, a mid-face lift specifically focuses on the center of the face to enhance the cheek area, as well as the mid-face from under the eyes to the corners of the mouth. Sometimes called a cheek lift, this procedure can tighten excess skin and restore lost volume for a more youthful appearance.

Benefits of Mid-Face Lift Procedures

There are many potential benefits of mid-face lift surgery, including:

  • Lifts and tightens skin that has lost elasticity
  • Restores lost facial volume to correct a “hollowed” look under the eyes
  • Improves cheekbone contours
  • Diminishes the appearance of deep nasolabial folds and smile lines
  • Corrects the initial appearance of mild jowling
  • Incisions and any scarring are easily concealed
  • Delivers a youthful appearance for improved self-confidence

What to Expect From Mid-Face Lift Surgery

A consultation with a plastic surgeon is the first step in the facial rejuvenation process. During this appointment, your surgeon will review your medical history, explain your options, and answer any questions you may have.

Mid-facelift surgery is typically an outpatient procedure performed with general anesthesia. There are several facelift techniques available for this procedure. A traditional mid-face lift procedure involves small incisions made within the hairline around the temples, and sometimes in the lower eyelid and in the mouth. Your surgeon will adjust the fat and muscle and reposition the skin for a smoother appearance.

Recovery after Mid-Face Lift Surgery

Your recovery experience will depend on your individual treatment plan. In general, you can expect mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days following your procedure. Mid-face lift patients can usually return to most day-to-day activities about one week after surgery, though strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.

Am I a Good Candidate for Mid-Face Lift Surgery?

The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to schedule a consultation appointment. Ideal candidates for this procedure are non-smokers in good general health who would like to improve the appearance of their mid-face.1

If you are interested in a comprehensive procedure that addresses the full face, your surgeon may recommend a traditional facelift or a mini face lift (MACS Lift).


Frequently Asked Questions About Mid-Face Lift Surgery

How Much Does Facelift Surgery Cost?

Pricing for any cosmetic surgery will vary based on your individual goals, the techniques used, and any add-on procedures. The average price range for a facelift at New York Plastic Surgical Group is between $11,000 to $14,000, but may be higher depending on the complexity of the case.

What Kind of Scars Will I Have After This Procedure?

Incision placement may vary based on the technique used, but all incisions, sutures, and resulting scars will be placed carefully and strategically so that they are easily hidden within the hairline or the natural contours of the face.

Can A Mid-Face Lift be Combined with Other Procedures?

Yes, patients often choose to add other facial plastic surgeries to their treatment plan, such as:

  • Blepharoplasty to remove excess skin around the eyes for a more bright-eyed look
  • Brow lift to improve the appearance of a drooping brow
  • Neck lift to correct jowls or “necklace” wrinkles

Patients may also opt to add non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers or laser treatments.
