My understanding is that the traditional facelift just addresses the lower portion of the face and neck. I want my cheeks and midfacial area worked on too. Can I have a midface lift and a facelift at the same time?
Cheeks and lower face can certainly be addressed at the same time. Usually the cheeks and midface area is rejuvenated by replacing lost volume rather than lifting the area. Having said that, the facelift that we perform will provide some degree of rejuvenation for the cheek area. The facelift alone will not however elevate or rejuvenate the medial cheek or lower eyelid which is associated with cheek volume loss.
