• Mini facelift

  • The procedure

    A mid-face lift aims to rejuvenate the area from the lower eyelid down to the folds that go from the corner of the nose down the side of the mouth (nasolabial folds). It lifts this whole area to restore a more youthful face, cheek and lower lid. It is performed whilst you are asleep either as an isolated procedure or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures.

     

  • What does it involve?

    An incision is made just below the eyelashes of the lower eyelid, to ensure that the resultant scar is very discrete. The surgery releases the mid-face at a level just on top of the bone to free it up from its tetherings. Once mobilised, the mid-face it securely stitched internally to a higher position (one that it would have occupied in youth). Excess lower eyelid skin can then be trimmed, any bulging lower eyelid fat can be dealt with and the skin is the stitched with fine stitches. 

    What are the benefits?

    A mid-face lift rejuvenates the middle of the face, softens any heaviness and sagging that has developed at the nasolabial fold and also improves the appearance of the lower eyelid area.
