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.

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.
