Midface Lift

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF MID-FACE SURGERIES?

In middle and older ages, people get an old and dull appearance due to tissue loss and sagging cheek, lower eye mid-face junction and mouth periphery. In mid-face surgery is the procedure of lifting and suspending cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues of eyebrow, temporal side, and peripheral area of mouth to get a younger and more vivid appearance. Deformed appearance (tear through deformity) between the lower eyelids and in cheek area is corrected.

It is usually applied between the ages of 35-50 and to those who want to get rid of old and tired glance and appearance and to those who do not have too much deformity. This surgery can be combined especially with lower eyelid aesthetics and fat injection applications. Thus a more natural, young and vivid appearance is obtained on the whole of face.

SURGERY DETAILS

HOW ARE THE PERIOPERATIVE AND POSTOPERATIVE PERIODS OF MID-FACE SURGERY?

The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia. Mid-face lift surgery usually takes 3 hours. Usually a day of hospitalization is needed. Edema and bruises may occur in the first 28-48 hours after operation. In combined applications, recovery of bruises and edema may take some time. On the first 1-2 days, pain and tension can be felt, however it can be relieved with painkillers. At the end of first week, makeup can be done. The individual may turn back to work a week later. Bandage and corset are applied after operation.

It takes 1-3 months for face to get the final appearance. In the long term results, a little sagging may form again due to genetic structure and effects of life style but not completely.  Mostly the scars become hardly visible within a few years. Nonetheless, wound healing varies from person to person. In very rare cases, excessive wound healing (keloid, hypertrophic scar) may occur.
