Mid Face Lift

Mid Face Lift – Cheek Lift

The Mid Face Lift or Cheek Lift restores the natural convex shape of the lower eyelid and cheek to correct puffiness of the lower eyelids, an indentation of the upper cheek and a prominent naso-labial (nose to lip) fold, or to minimize the look of big eyes. The mid face lift provides a natural and youthful appearance without an overdone or pulled look. For a more complete introduction to the mid face lift, please read Dr. Hoenig's article, "The Mid Face Lift - 33% More To Facial Surgery ".

Usually 40s and older, although can be done younger for inherited traits.

Surgical Technique:
A small incision is made inside the lower eyelid or through the mouth to provide direct visualization of the cheek and lower eyelid. The tissues are replaced to a more aesthetic position, and the incisions are closed. Often times a cheek or tear trough implant is placed simultaneously.

Surgical Time and Recovery:
Mid Face Lift surgery takes 3 to 4 hours using local and tumescent anesthesia, and IV or oral sedation. Sutures usually dissolve within a week. Most patients are back to light work after 2 weeks.

A Mid Face Lift or Cheek Lift is sometimes used for reconstructive purposes, and if so, it may be covered by your insurance. Typical problems requiring a mid face lift for reconstructive surgery are: lower eyelid retraction from previous cosmetic surgery, orbital decompression for tumor or thyroid eye disease, and turning out of the lower eyelid (ectropion).

Related Procedures:
Mid Face Lift can be combined with a browlift, facelift, blepharoplasty, fat transfer, facial implants, botox, and chemical peels or laser resurfacing.
