Mid face flattening and sagging
Close

The Mid Face area is a very specific area which comprises the cheek area below the eyelids and the area adjacent to the nose and nose to mouth lines. It is not a 'middle' or 'medium' facelift and in fact is not very frequently performed compared to the classical facelift which addresses the jowls, jawline and neck area. As you age, the effects of gravity, repeated muscle contraction, and lifestyle cause the skin, fat, and muscle in this region to move downwards. When this occurs, the cheeks begin to look saggy or flat, the lower eyelids can become puffy or hollow, and circles begin to appear under the eyes furthermore the lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth deepen.

As a result techniques have been developed to improve this flattening and the descent seen in the mid face. This procedure effectively lifts the middle segment of the face by restoring the volume and fullness as well as enhancing the appearance of the cheekbones. When performed skillfully, a Mid-Face lift will deliver a natural but noticeable improvement.

Top 5 FAQs for Mid Face Lift Surgery

What's the difference between a Mid Face Lift and a 'regular' Facelift?
Open Close

A “regular” Facelift or Lower facelift usually addresses jowling or sagging in the jawline, neck and to some degree the cheeks. The Mid Facelift on the other hand primarily addresses any flattening or sagging in the cheek area below the eyelids and the area adjacent to the nose and nose to mouth lines. Although a mid face lift may be performed as a stand-alone procedure many times this can be performed in combination with a “regular” face or neck lift.

What is the aim of a Mid Face Lift?
Open Close

The aim of the mid-face lift is to restore the natural curves and fullness in the cheeks by moving soft fatty tissues(called Fat Pads) that have sagged, back into a more aesthetically pleasing position. This is achieved by elevating these off from the bone, and then repositioning them upward towards the under eye area and cheekbones whilst fixating them in place until they re-adhere in this new position. This restores cheek volume and establishes a more youthful midface contour. The aim is to always achieve a more natural, revitalized appearance that doesn’t appear overdone or "pulled." A new approach in this technique allows Mr. Karidis to quickly lift and secure tissue to a more youthful position by using a clever implant called the ENDOTINE Midface device (www.endotinebeauty.com). This innovative device offers a reliable and predictable way to achieve cheek suspension, enabling shorter surgical times and improved aesthetic outcomes.

Am I suitable for a Mid Face Lift?
Open Close

The best candidate for a Mid facelift is a man or woman whose face has begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity. There is no need to wait until hanging folds or almost irreversible changes have taken place. In fact increasingly these procedures are being carried out on younger patients. These days, many patients prefer earlier corrections to maintain youthful appearances, and therefore avoid living through a period of looking "old and tired". If your cheeks are sagging or have flattened over the years, and your smile lines have deepened, then you’re probably a good candidate for a midface suspension. Of course the best way to determine if a midface suspension is right for you is by a thorough consultation with your surgeon.

Can I achieve a similar effect to a Mid Face Lift without surgery?
Open Close

It is possible to improve any flattening or mild sagging of the cheek or mid face region using some sort of injectable filler. If the filler to be used is of a synthetic type then this will usually need to be repeated to achieve any lasting effects. If your own fat is used then this first needs to be harvested from a donor area on your body, and then processed to optimise the injection and “take” of the fat. Even in this situation you may require more fat injections in the future in order to maintain the result. Another way is to use Silhouette threads whereby a series of barbed threads are placed under the skin to allow lifting of the mid face area.

What advantages does Endotine Mid Face Lift have over traditional suture suspension?
Open Close

By eliminating the need for fixation sutures, which were previously the most commonly used devices for midface suspension, surgeons have now found the ENDOTINE Midface device much simpler and easier to use. Whilst it is well known that the suture suspension technique can be effective in experienced hands, it also carries with it potential challenges, such as nerve entrapment, dimpling of tissue, tissue tear-through, extended operating time and surgeon frustration with lack of ability to adjust placement. In Mr. Karidis’ opinion the Endotine Mid face device eliminates a lot of these issues.

"My entire experience for an abdominoplasty and breast augmentation operation was faultless from a professional and caring team. I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough from the consultation, in establishing what I wanted, to his skilled work. I am absolutely delighted with the results."

Thank you for working your magic and making me look years younger! Also a big thank you to your team for all their help and support. I love my new face!

"A seven week recovery journey with a couple of little detours, but navigated with care by Mr Karidis, Suzi & Martina. Explanations, reassurance & advice given from first consultation, day of operation, day one post op. and at all subsequent clinic visits, along with a good dose of friendly chit chat & laughter, (Always a good medicine!). Thank you Mr Karidis & team. No regrets here."

Outstanding in every way This is my second breast augmentation with Mr Karidis - my first experience was amazing as were the results! Second time around and once again my experience was faultless. The whole team are amazing from front of desk and Rose, to the lovely nurses pre and post-op! The after care given, which is also important, is second to none and I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and giving me back my confidence!

Brilliant consultation... I was very impressed with my consultation with Mr Karidis. Mr Karidis made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions.

"I was very happy with my treatment experience. Mr Karidis , staff and facilities were excellent. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Karidis and his clinic."

"I am only three days into the recovery of my gynecomastia procedure, and already it has changed my life. I travelled from Cardiff to London to have this procedure and it was by far cheaper than having it done in my local area. Furthermore, Karidis' reputation exceeds expectations. I look forward to my follow up consultation so Karidis can see how he has changed my life. Communication from Karidis and his team - 5 star Professionalism - 5 star Results - 5 star."
