Can you explain what a midface lift is and what it treats?
A midface lift is a lift that elevates the cheek region. We performed this lift for years using an endoscopic technique. The results were good, but did not last as long as we would have liked, didn’t provide benefit to the medial tear trough, and caused a fair bit of recovery time. Over the last 6-7 years we have phased out of performing this procedure very often and have become firm believers and educators in the philosophy of facial volume loss as the main contributor to cheek and midfacial aging. Therefore, we aim to restore this region of the face using volume restoration techniques. If a patient is interested in long-lasting correction we recommend fat grafting. For temporary, but still nice results a variety of fillers can be used. More information is available on our site regarding these procedures.
