Often, the earliest signs of aging occur in the midface region. The midface region consisits of the triangular area formed between the two corners of each eye along with the corresponding corner of the mouth. So as time and gravity take their effects, the cheeks sag, often creating a haggard and tired appearance. Therefore, when this happens, a midface lift counteracts the appearance of aging by tightening the skin and bringing back the skin’s vitality.
Midface Lift Procedure Details
A midface lift surgical targets the midface region. Therefore, by tightening and smoothing the skin and muscle tissue in the cheeks the face appears more youthful. During the plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Katz makes incisions in the temple and in the natural curves in front of the ear and earlobe region. Next, the underlying muscle and connective tissues are tightened and the cheek fat pads are repositioned to their desired location to complete the midface lift.
