As we age there is a general loss of volume in the face with loss of fat and support. With the loss of facial fat volume, the facial soft tissues descend and result in midface laxity, deepening of the smile lines, descent of the corners of the mouth and onset of heaviness of the jowls. This ageing check descent is then amenable to cosmetic plastic surgery rejuvenation.

The advantages of mid-facelift technique are invisible scars and a nice, natural restoration of an oval appearance to the mid-face and cheek.  The restoration of the “fullness of youth” is very natural and improves the appearance of the lower lid as well as the oval shape to the face and evening of the jaw line.

Good Candidates

Good candidates for Endoscopic or Traditional Mid Face Lift are patients who have sagging cheeks, loss of mid facial fat and soft tissue volume, early jowls are good patients for Mid Facelifts.

Pre-Operative Consultation

The preoperative consultation will require a meeting between you and Dr. Mulholland who will evaluate your facial profile which includes your cheeks, jowls and chin. The doctor will determine with you the best route and procedure that can vary from surgical to non-surgical.

Procedure

Endoscopic Mid Facelift surgery procedures can be performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation or general anesthesia. They may be performed as an outpatient or you may have an overnight stay.

A MidFacelift involves the use of a telescope inserted through inconspicuous incisions far behind the temple hairline and inside the mouth to re-suspend the droopy fat and soft tissues of the mid-face. This will leave minor barely seeable scars and youthful facial features.

Following your Mid Facelift procedure, you will be recommended a comprehensive postoperative care regime over a six month period of time. These minimally invasive services will include fractional laser techniques, soft tissue fillers and injectables. The combination of these non invasive skin enhancement techniques together with the Endoscopic Mid  Facelift will provide you with beautiful skin as well the skin being located in a more youthful, elevated position.

The patient often stays overnight and goes home the next day without the need for any dressings.

Minimal initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Sutures are removed within 10 days. Bruising and swelling decrease to “socially acceptable” levels in 14-20 days.

An early result is evident in 4-6 weeks or sooner with continued improvement for several months. Patients can return to work after 3 weeks.

Results can generally last 7-10 years.

Benefits

The advantages of this technique are virtually invisible scars and a nice, natural restoration of an oval appearance to the mid-face and cheek.

Additional Procedures

Additional procedures can include other facial treatments such as a 5-minute nose job, Belkyra for chin reduction and other non-invasive procedures. Discuss with the doctor regarding suitable options.

Risks and Complications
