A mid face lift targets sagging skin between the eyes and mouth, working deep within the tissues to tone and firm the skin. Unlike a traditional face lift, a mid face lift focuses on the middle of the face and treats areas deeper beneath the surface to provide more dramatic results. Dr. David Passaretti performs mid face lift surgery at his Darien, CT, practice to rejuvenate tissue around the eyes and cheeks.
Typically, face lift candidates are in their 40s or 50s, and wish to reduce the signs of aging. All patients should be in good overall health, not smoke or drink to excess, and have realistic expectations for the procedure. A mid face lift is ideal for patients who do not require a traditional full face lift to achieve their desired results and want to reduce the appearance of sagging cheeks, bags under the eyes, and deep lines alongside the nose and mouth.
Prior to any facial surgery, you will meet with Dr. Passaretti to discuss your cosmetic goals and determine the most appropriate procedure to meet those goals. You can also discuss the possibility of combining your face lift with another procedure, such as a fat transfer or cheek augmentation, for even more dramatic results.
Dr. Passaretti typically uses the same incisions as a full face lift for mid face lift procedures. These incisions run along the hairline at the temples and curve along the ear, but will provide access to deeper tissues. Dr. Passaretti can alter the exact location and length of incisions to achieve your desired results.
The mid face lift procedure is relatively quick, typically lasting about two hours and taking place in our private operating facility. Dr. Passaretti will create your incisions according to the technique chosen during your consultation. He will reposition your muscle tissues to tighten and firm your skin, and he will then suture your incisions closed. Following your procedure, you will only need to take about one week off from work and should be able to see most of your results as swelling fades over the next few weeks.
A mid face lift by itself is typically more affordable than the traditional face lift. With one procedure, you can enjoy dramatic results with more toned, smooth skin and a more youthful appearance.
