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.
