What’s a mid facelift?

A mid facelift is a cosmetic procedure done to tighten the skin from the upper mouth to eye region. This correction helps to reduce dissent of the cheek and under eye without making corrections to the forehead or jawline. Those who require more correction may need to consider a full facelift.

This procedure involves one small incision in the hairline and one small incision in the mouth. From this, the doctor is able to readjust, tighten, and lift the cheek tissue. This results in more facial fullness with minimal invasion.

Incisions typically take 1-2 weeks to heal but are easily concealed. Swelling and fullness is to be expected, but will subside as you heal. The procedure is performed with no hospital stay required.

What are other facelift options?

If a mid facelift is not fitting for your specific needs, there are other Maryland facelift options that may be more beneficial:

  • Full Facelift: This procedure corrects the face by tightening the skin and muscles of the entire face. Incisions are made in the hairline and behind the ear.
  • Brow Lift: This procedure focuses on the upper region of your face by lifting the forehead, therefore lifting the eyebrows and revealing the upper eyelids. Incisions are made within the hairline.
  • Neck Lift: This procedure specifically focuses on tightening the muscle within the neck and reducing sagging or droopy skin below the chin. Incisions are made just below the chin and behind the ear if necessary.

Are there non-surgical facelift options?

Although surgical intervention is typically the best remedy for loose facial skin, there are other less invasive options. Fillers and Botox can temporarily help to create fullness and smoothness in problem areas, similar to a facelift effect. Restoring your face’s youth is possible by maintaining regular injectable treatments, accompanied by thorough consultations with your doctor.

“Well… what can a girl say, but, thank you, thank you, thank you! Dr. Bruno was kind, considerate and understanding of my needs.

“Dr Brown performed botox injections and I found him to be patient, skilled, and knowledgeable. I’ve had botox before with other plastic surgeons and come out looking lopsided with one eyebrow up and one drooping. I was nervous going in from my past experiences but Dr Brown listened to my concerns and took time to explain what he was doing and why. I am going back for my next injections and will continue to go back again.” – Leah H.

A facelift is a surgical procedure on the face and neck region to reduce the signs of aging. These signs may include:

  • Relaxation of the skin of the face causing sagging

  • Fat that has fallen or disappeared
  • Jowls development
  • Loose skin and excess fat resulting in a double chin or “turkey neck”

Mid-facelifts are performed when the patient is experiencing dissent of the cheek area with little to no problem around the upper face region. Incisions are placed in the hairline and inside the cheek to pull the tissue up and regain fullness. The incisions will take about 2 weeks to heal but are easily concealed. Fullness will be more aggressive immediately after surgery but will subside as you recover. This procedure is appropriate for many different patients regardless of age.

Facelifts are a combination of many different “lifting” procedures to give you the overall refreshed look. Multiple areas may be addressed at once which can make the recovery process slightly longer. More incisions may be involved but are easily concealed.
