The midface lift is a plastic surgery procedure which can restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance to the cheek and midface area. The procedure can lift sagging cheeks and restore cheek fullness while also softening smile lines. Good candidates for the midface lift include men and women who are looking to improve a flat or sunken appearance of the midface and cheek areas.
Dr. Schwartz performs the midface lift in an outpatient surgical center using IV sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure takes about one and a half hours to complete. Tiny, hidden incisions are made and the deep layers of the cheek bone are resuspended in a natural position.
The recovery after a midface lift takes about five to seven days. Discomfort tends to be minor. Some swelling and bruising may occur but generally fades within a few weeks. Stitches are removed in five to seven days, at which time patients can usually return to work. More strenuous activities should be postponed for about two weeks.
I want to thank you for my new nose! I absolutely love the results. After the unfortunate experience I had with my first rhinoplasty, I was very skeptical and nervous about a revision. .you listened very carefully and was able to show me a computer rendition of how my new nose would look. I now love the way I look and I feel so much better about myself and my appearance.
