Dr. Gregory Lewen, M.D. specializes in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the eyes and face for his Miami and south Florida patients. A mid-facelift is one of Dr. Lewen's more popular procedures, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance for his patients.

Introduction to Mid-Facelift

At our boutique practice in Miami, mid-facelift is a very popular facial plastic surgery procedure we perform. Double board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, Gregory D. Lewen, M.D., offers mid-facelift for men and women in Miami, Aventura, and the surrounding areas of Florida.

What is a Mid-Facelift?

The middle third of the face often develops signs of aging before other areas of the face. This includes the cheeks and eyes. In these cases, patients may not need a full facelift, as the surgery is considered too extensive given the limitations of the problem areas. A mid-facelift is often the best option to target the middle portion of the face.

What Are the Benefits of a Mid-Facelift?

For individuals with sagging cheeks, but not jowls or banding of the neck, a mid-facelift may be the best solution. If the mid-face (the soft tissue pad of the cheek) has dropped, this may produce the appearance of having sunken cheeks and deep folds between the nose and the mouth, called nasolabial folds.

  • "I just saw Dr. Lewen July 6, 2018. His bedside manner is excellent. He explains all procedures in detail. I was extremely happy with the outcome and I will be going back. He and his staff are super professional and make you feel comfortable. The best part, is that he takes you at your appointment time, no 2 hour waiting ????"

What Should I Expect from a Mid-Facelift Procedure?

Mid-face lifts may often be performed with very small incisions hidden in such areas as in the corners of the eyelids. In some cases, Dr. Lewen may perform this procedure endoscopically.

The new “vertical facelift” or mid-face lift offers an effective alternative in appropriate cases to the traditional facelift with less overall surgery and downtime.

A mid-facelift is a more permanent option for people who are not seeing their desired results from other, more conservative, surgical, and non-surgical treatment options.

What is the Recovery like After a Mid-Facelift?

Although the mid-facelift is less extensive than a traditional facelift, patients should prepare for a recovery period of at least two weeks. Sutures are removed after seven to 10 days. Swelling and bruising typically take several weeks to resolve. Dr. Lewen recommends that his patients rest at home for at least two weeks and avoid strenuous activities, such as lifting and exercise, for at least three weeks. This timeline does vary by patient, so patients should adhere to the post-operative and follow-up instructions provided by Dr. Lewen during the recovery period.
