What is a midface lift? I can guess that it treats the midface, but what specifically does this include? How do I know if I need a midface lift or a regular facelift?
The term midface lift is used to describe varying procedures to lift the cheek region of the face. While we have performed a variety of these procedures in the past, we were unhappy with the longevity of the result and have come to firmly believe that the cheek region of the face ages more from volume loss than from tissue dissent. We now utilize volume replacement utilizing the patient’s own fat cells or facial fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Juvederm.
