Mid Face Lift
Also known as Mini lift, Cheek Lift
Mid Face lifts can be done in an outpatient facility of a hospital depending on patient’s choice. The procedure tightens loose facial skin of the cheek to soften deep static facial lines like the nasolabial and marionettes lines. The procedure will not improve jaw line definition and neck contour. The procedure can be combined with fat grafts or filler injections to further soften or address deep nasolabial lines.
The procedure can be done under sedation or general anesthesia depending on patient’s comfort level.
After the procedure, patients will have pressure dressing at their cheek area to help control the swelling. Patients are advised that there will be swelling, tightness, minimal pain or discomfort and numbness. However, these are transient and resolve spontaneously during the next several weeks.
For Better Healing:
To improve healing and minimize swelling, patients are advise to avoid the following for 2 to 3 weeks : smoking, alcoholic beverages, aspirin, NSAID’s like mefenamic acids, vitamin E supplement, steroids, herbal tea or herbal medications.
