Combining Surgeries with Midface Lift

Midface lifts can be done alone or in combination with other facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift. The procedure involves the use of the fiberoptic endoscope so that it can be done with minimal incisions and employs an absorbable suspension device called the Endotine ST. Many patients opt for a combination of facial surgeries to achieve more comprehensive rejuvenation. Additionally, some may consider nonsurgical treatments like dermal fillers to maintain or enhance their results over time.

The Mid-Face Lift Procedure

The mid-facelift procedure is usually done in an outpatient surgery setting. This surgery aims to refresh the middle part of the face. It involves incisions made inside the mouth above the gums and two small incisions made in the temporal scalp. After freeing the soft tissues from the facial bones, they are suspended up to the temples with the aid of the endoscope.

Once mobilized, the tissues are engaged with an absorbable device, elevated, and secured. The midface lift moves the tissues by dissection and repositions them to heal in a new, more favorable position against the underlying bone. A midface lift in Beverly Hills takes approximately two hours to complete.

Patients often go home the same day. You’ll get detailed instructions for aftercare to help you through the days of healing that follow.

It’s also advised to limit alcohol consumption, as it can dehydrate the body and impair recovery. Maintaining a healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals will support healing.

Length of Midface Lift treatment

Skin Care Regimen

Implement a gentle skincare routine as advised by the surgeon to prepare your skin for surgery. This might include hydrating the skin properly and using specific products that promote elasticity.
