Mid Facelift Bluffton
A Midface Lift is a surgery designed to raise and reposition droopy cheek tissues. It specifically addresses the fallen cheek mounds that, with time, descend away from the lower eyelids and move toward the mouth. This drooping is sometimes the exact cause of a patient’s nasolabial folds. Additionally, the descending fat pads of the front of the cheek cause a hollow, gaunt, sad appearance below the eyes as the lower lids appear to lengthen.’
The Midface Lift raises the soft tissues (such as fat, muscle, and skin) back up where they started and secures them in place in the original, more youthful, location. Amazingly, this is done with no incisions on the face! The procedure is done on each side with only 2 small incisions- one inside the mouth and one within the temple and hidden by hair.
The mid facelift involves a recovery period of about seven to ten days. Patients may experience some degree of bruising, swelling, discomfort, and numbness.
The mid facelift is a very safe and effective procedure. However, as with any surgery, there are potential risks and these may include the risk of infection, hematoma, adverse anesthesia reaction, nerve damage, and noticeable scarring.
