Midface Lift Surgery

The cheeks and midface are crucial elements in retaining a youthful appearance. When the tissue and skin in this area droop and sag, it can create deep nasolabial lines around the nose and enhance the appearance of bags under the eyes. When this occurs, the face can look perpetually sad and tired as well as older. As one of the rejuvenating facial cosmetic treatment options available through Dr. Rousso at our facial plastic surgery clinic in NYC, midface lift surgery can address these issues and reveal a more youthful, energetic appearance for our patients.

A typical or traditional facelift addresses the jowls and neck, but for some people the midface can have sagging before these other areas are affected. The midface lift surgery is usually used for those in their late thirties or forties that only have sagging in the cheek area, or it is used in combination with an overall facelift. The procedure lifts the fat and tissue in the midface, positioning the cheeks back above the cheekbones, creating a more youthful appearance and reducing nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth.

Advanced Facelift Techniques for Natural Results

Dr. Rousso is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon that puts an emphasis on creating natural results for his patients. For the midface lift surgery, he uses deep-plane techniques that lift not only the skin, but the tissues and fat in the cheeks for a natural rejuvenation of the face. This procedure can be used alone, but it is often combined with fat transfers or blepharoplasty that can help reduce bags under the eyes and soften tear troughs. Dr. Rousso can recommend the best procedures to ensure you get the results you desire with your midface lift surgery, while appearing natural.
