Question: How often do you perform the midface lift? Who is this procedure right for?
Answer: The midface lift is performed less frequently than other facial rejuvenation procedures, but there are still many surgeons who perform it regularly with very good results. There are various specific techniques for the mid-face lift, but the common result is that it re-suspends the cheek tissue to a position higher on the face, which restores a more youthful appearance. This process reduces the appearance of the nasolabial folds (lines from nostrils to lips), which are the result of drooping cheek tissue. Therefore, this procedure would suit a patient who desires fuller, more youthful cheeks and am improvement in nasolabial folds.
