Midface Lift Surgery
The midface includes the upper and lower cheeks that form the main contours of the face. With aging, the midface can droop and lose volume under the skin, creating fat, sagging cheeks. The nasolabial fold can deepen, and hollows or bags may be pronounced under the eyes due to the upper cheeks sagging. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA, offer midface lift surgery to rejuvenate the cheeks for a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Maia is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial rejuvenation. Her goal with lift procedures is to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance that looks natural, and you will still look like you, only younger. With a midface lift, she addresses the skin, tissue and fat between the lower nose and upper cheek bone, elevating and tightening the skin and tissue into a more youthful position.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Midface Lift?
A traditional facelift addresses the lower face and upper neck when the jowls begin to sag, and blepharoplasty and brow lifts address the eyes and forehead aging issues. The midface lift is the area in between, connecting all the facial features. A midface lift can be combined with a traditional facelift, blepharoplasty or browlift for full face rejuvenation. Those who have a noticeable drooping under the eyes due to lost volume or sagging in the cheeks or deep nasolabial folds (smile lines) may benefit the most from a midface lift.
If you have noticed eye bags, lines or drooping cheeks as you age, midface lift surgery may be right for you. To learn more about our face and neck rejuvenation procedures, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the greater Washington, DC metro area for a midface lift consultation with Dr. Maia.
