A mid facelift is the latest method in the line of anti aging solutions. There are plenty of things to consider when you choose to undergo a mid facelift. The procedure involves tightening the facial muscles to give the face a smoother and more youthful appearance. As you age, your facial skin may begin to sag, and when this happens, you will start to look older and tired. The mid facelift is the perfect solution to this problem.
While traditional facelift techniques have targeted the skin around the cheeks, a mid facelift will target the excess skin and underlying muscles of the middle part of the face.
Are You a Good Candidate for the Procedure?
A mid facelift offers more natural-looking results. While smoothing out wrinkles has been a primary goal for patients and doctors for many years now, many people are realizing that a traditional face lift may eliminate wrinkles, but leaves the face looking unnaturally taut and hinder the expressions you make. A mid facelift, according to doctors, can remedy this situation.
It does not significantly alter the uppermost layer of the face, but it does provide the skin with a great lift that can make you look more youthful.
If you want a procedure that solely targets sagging skin and loose muscles without making your face look too taut, then the mid facelift may be the answer to your problems. Since the treatment offers natural results that can make you look younger without anyone noticing that you have undergone surgery, it is widely used to achieve aesthetic goals that may seem out of reach.
It can even be used on those who need minimal improvements because it isn’t as extensive as a traditional face lift. For example, if the skin has not developed deep wrinkles or fine lines, but you notice a heavier, sagging appearance of your face, then this might be the right surgery for you.
What to Expect
Your surgeon will begin the procedure by making incisions near the cheekbones to access the cheek muscles. Your surgeon will then lift the muscles and reattach them to the bone higher up on the face. This gives the face a clean lift, without affecting the skin too much. The entire procedure is carried out below the skin level.
A mid facelift works on the muscles at the cheek level. A traditional face lift works around the periphery of the face. Both procedures have their usefulness and depending on your needs, your surgeon may make a recommendation. In addition to tightening the facial muscles, a mid facelift may also involve removing excess fat from under the eyes and sagging skin in the target area.
The recovery times you experience will depend on the extent of surgery. You will need to take a few days off work to relax and heal. As you recover, your surgeon may prescribe certain medications to help ease any discomfort.
It is important to choose a surgeon who is skilled in performing mid facelift surgeries. This procedure involves accessing the deeper tissue and muscles under the facial skin. This is why it is important to consult a surgeon who has the experience and the skills to carry out the procedure safely and expertly.
