The under-eye area and cheeks can change with age. The midface and upper cheeks can lose fat and volume, resulting in sagging and hollows under the eyes. The nasolabial fold can deepen around the nose and mouth, creating indented lines in the face. Midface lift surgery can remove excess skin, tighten the cheeks and reduce lines for a more youthful appearance. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer a variety of facelift options at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
Traditional facelift procedures target the lower face and upper neck but do not rejuvenate the cheeks and under-eye area. To tighten the area between the mouth and eyes, a midface lift surgery is required. This procedure helps lift and firm the cheeks and smooths the transition from the under-eye area to the cheeks. This surgery can reshape the midface for a firmer, more youthful appearance. A midface or cheek lift can be combined with a facelift, brow lift or blepharoplasty to refresh multiple areas on the face.
Rejuvenate the Cheeks and Midface
A midface lift can restore the contours of the cheeks and refresh the under eye area. The incisions for the lift procedure can be hidden behind the hairline, allowing for access to the skin and tissue within the midface. Excess skin can be removed, and the skin and tissue tightened and lifted. Many patients receiving a mid-facelift can benefit from a fat transfer combined with their lift. This can replace volume in the cheeks to achieve a more youthful, firmer appearance and minimize hollows or bags under the eyes. The result is a firmer, smoother transition from the under eye area to the cheeks, with fewer lines and laxity in the midface.
Every person’s face ages differently. While a traditional facelift may address jowl and neck sagging, other individuals have sagging or flat cheeks that have a larger impact on their appearance. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer a wide variety of lift procedures that can rejuvenate the facial appearance, from neck and face lifts to brow and midface lifts.
