The mid facelift is a procedure designed to improve the look of the cheekbone area as well as the area below the eyelids. Because this procedure corrects some of the early signs of aging, it gives a refreshed appearance to the patient who has begun to experience the effects of aging but does not yet feel the need for a full facelift.
When this procedure is combined with a browlift, the results are more dramatic. The combined procedure rejuvenates the cheekbone area and brightens the eyes.
With aging, the effects of gravity become more pronounced. Facial skin begins to wrinkle and sag. It can gather along the jawline and loosen around the neck. Many factors can contribute to this occurrence including genetic predisposition and exposure to the sun. A facelift provides a surgical rejuvenation of all four areas of the face, including: the forehead and upper eyelids, the mid-face and lower eyelids, the lower face and lips, and the neck. It is a popular procedure to correct the conditions of aging and give people a more youthful appearance. A facelift involves tightening the facial and neck skin and muscles as well as removing excess skin. As with other plastic surgery procedures, the healing process with a facelift is gradual and final results will take several weeks to be noticeable, but the benefits from this procedure will last for years.
