Subtle, natural facial rejuvenation

The Mid Facelift is a revolutionary surgical procedure designed for individuals who seek a remedy for early signs of aging in the mid-face region. Pioneered by Dr. Daniel Liebertz, this technique has the benefit of minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to their routine swiftly without compromising the beauty and quality of the results.

What is a Mid Facelift?

Dr. Liebertz’s Mid Facelift, or “cheek lift,” is a specialized cosmetic surgery focused on revitalizing the central region of the face. This procedure aims to lift and tighten the skin from the upper lip to the eye area. By doing so, a mid-facelift can counteract the signs of aging, restoring volume to hollowed or sunken under-eye regions and enhancing the prominence of the cheekbones. It’s crucial to note that a mid-facelift is distinct in its approach; it does not address concerns about the jawline or the forehead. Instead, it zeroes in on the mid-face to deliver a refreshed, youthful appearance, emphasizing the eyes and cheeks as focal points of facial beauty.

Is a Mid Facelift right for you?

Many of our patients are candidates for a Mid Facelift to counteract the early signs of facial aging. While some are blessed with age-defying genes, others experience volume loss or drooping in the midface region much earlier. The ideal candidates include those with:

  • Age-related changes: You’ve noticed sagging or drooping in the mid-face region, particularly from the corners of your eyes to the sides of your mouth.
  • Volume loss: The area below your eyes appears hollow or sunken, and your cheeks lack the fullness they once had.
  • Good health: You are in overall good health, free from conditions that might complicate surgery or recovery.
  • Realistic expectations: You clearly understand what a mid-facelift can achieve and have set realistic goals for the outcome.
  • Non-smoker: Smoking can complicate both the procedure and the healing process. Ideally, candidates should be non-smokers or willing to quit before and after the surgery.

What can a Mid Facelift treat?

A Mid Facelift focuses primarily on the central region of the face, targeting the areas that develop the first signs of aging. This procedure rejuvenates the cheeks, reduces nasolabial folds, and elevates sagging tissues, resulting in a refreshed youthful appearance. It addresses the descent of the malar fat pad, restoring it to its original position to restore a fresh look to the facial contours. By concentrating on this specific region, a Mid Facelift effectively resolves age-related changes for a look that is remarkably refreshed and natural.

What is the procedure?

In a mid facelift procedure, tiny cuts are made near the hairline and close to the ears. Through the incisions, an endoscope is introduced to tighten and refine loosened facial muscles. The process also encompasses repositioning the malar fat pads, enhancing the contours, giving the cheeks a more raised appearance, and addressing under-eye bags. This custom procedure is performed at our private, onsite surgical center with personalized care and attention.

What is the recovery time?

A Mid Facelift has a fast recovery time. After surgery, you must refrain from vigorous activities for about four weeks. Notably, the Mid Facelift yields enduring results, far outperforming alternatives such as “Lifestyle” or “Feather” lifts. Within about two weeks, most patients feel very confident in social interactions, looking healthy, refreshed, and youthful in the most natural way.

A Mid Facelift delivers a significant, but subtle level of facial rejuvenation. Combining this treatment with other procedures can enhance the overall results, ensuring a harmonious and balanced facial transformation. Procedures such as a brow lift or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can address forehead wrinkles, drooping eyelids, or under-eye bags, providing a more alert and youthful eye appearance. Dr. Liebertz’s expertise allows for a customized treatment plan, tailoring a comprehensive facial rejuvenation plan for the individual.
