The midface area is a very specific area that comprises the cheek area below the eyelids and the area adjacent to the nose and nose-to-mouth lines. It is not a ‘middle’ or ‘medium’ facelift and in fact is not very frequently performed compared to the classical facelift which addresses the jowls, jawline, and neck area.
As you age, the effects of gravity, repeated muscle contraction and lifestyle cause the skin, fat, and muscle in this region to move downwards. When this occurs, the cheeks begin to look saggy or flat, the lower eyelids can become puffy or hollow, and circles begin to appear under the eyes. Furthermore, the lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth deepen. If you would like to know more about the cheek lift procedure, call our Fattan Polyclinic and we can arrange a consultation for you.
WHAT IS A CHEEK LIFT?
WHAT CAN A CHEEK LIFT ACHIEVE?
Using minimally invasive cheek and midface lift techniques with limited incisions, the droopy cheek tissue can be lifted up over the cheekbone restoring the more prominent youthful contour, improving the tear trough and bagginess of the lower lids, and softening the undesirable cheek fold.
HOW CAN A CHEEK LIFT CAN BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE?
Patients often seek cheek lifts as a complementary procedure to a face lift. It restores confidence by reducing the signs of aging in the central part of the face – something you will really notice when you smile – and the recovery time is relatively short, making patients not have to wait long to show off their fresh look.
The reason face lift patients will get a cheek lift is that a face lift focuses on restoring the neck, lower jaw, and jawline. Cheek lifts address the central part of the face. The two procedures combined leave patients with smoother skin and a natural rested look.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT DURING CHEEK LIFT RECOVERY?
HOW LONG DOES A CHEEK LIFT LAST?
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY FROM A CHEEK LIFT?
The incision is under the eyelashes and sutures are taken out between five and seven days after the procedure. Typically, there is very little postoperative discomfort.
In some cases, swelling may last for two to four weeks. In some (rare) cases, the swelling might last longer. For most patients, they can resume regular activities in about four weeks.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A CHEEK LIFT?
While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, proper physical health and realistic expectations can make the recovery process more seamless. Fundamentally, a candidate for a midface lift is simply someone who would like to improve the profile of their face and combat the signs of aging in the cheek area.
We invite all those interested in this procedure to reach out to Fattan Polyclinic for a consultation. However, if you do not feel that this is right for you, please visit our non-surgical procedure page.
