Mid Facelift Improvements

The mid face, which starts at the lower eyelids and ends at the corners of the mouth, can become flattened, sunken, or saggy with age. To reverse these changes, Dr. Chaboki performs mid facelift surgery, also called a cheek lift. This procedure enhances the face by:

  • Correcting early signs of aging in the cheek area
  • Giving the cheeks a more youthful, lifted look
  • Rejuvenating the middle of the face

The cheek lift is an ideal complement to the facelift for rejuvenation of the lower face or a brow lift or eyelid surgery for the upper face; therefore, Dr. Chaboki often performs a combination of procedures to address multiple concerns with a single surgery and recovery period.

Your Cheek Enhancement Options

Dr. Chaboki can perform other procedures in addition to or instead of a mid facelift. Options include:

  • Cheek augmentation with solid silicone facial implants can enhance mid facelift results by adding definition to the cheeks.
  • Nonsurgical facelifts with fat injections or injectable fillers such as Restylane®, RADIESSE®, or Sculptra® fill out the cheeks with minimal downtime.
  • Med spa treatments, such as facial fillers and chemical peels can provide enhancement to the cheeks for patients who are not ready for cosmetic surgery.

During your consultation, Dr. Chaboki will recommend the best options for you based on your areas of most concern, the amount of correction you would like to achieve, and your underlying facial anatomy.

How It’s Performed

Dr. Chaboki performs mid facelift surgery using anesthesia with incisions hidden in the scalp. He lifts the cheek tissue to a higher position to create fuller, more youthful-looking cheeks.

Recovery After Mid Facelift Surgery

Recovery after a mid facelift normally takes 1 to 2 weeks but varies depending on whether you have other procedures performed at the same time. Initially, you will have swelling and bruising, especially under the eyes. You will likely feel “restaurant” ready after a couple of weeks as your fresher, more attractive results emerge.

Your Renewed Look

When Dr. Chaboki performs mid facelift surgery, he provides results that look attractive, not overdone. His priorities are safety and natural-looking facial rejuvenation.

After your surgery, you will look better than nature intended for the remainder of your life. Because the aging process continues, wrinkles and sagging skin will likely develop over the following years. You should look better than if you had not had the procedure in the first place.

You may consider secondary plastic surgery several years after your original procedure. Additional procedures such as BOTOX, facial fillers, or laser treatments are often used to help maintain a youthful appearance. These nonsurgical treatments typically are started a few months after surgery.
