Mid-face lifts are targeted at the areas between the eyes and lips, which over time can lose fullness and lead to a more aged appearance. The mid-face lift reduces these effects and can restore youthful appearance by giving better elevation and projection of the cheeks. The mid-face lift procedure is also suited for those with Bell’s palsy or facial asymmetry.
Dr. Georgopoulos is an acknowledged expert in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and he will consult with you to get the outcome you desire.
Mid-face lift surgery is carried out with tiny incisions that are made as subtly as possible within the hairline of your temple and on the inside of the mouth. Dr. Georgopoulos will use these incisions to reposition the fatty areas of your cheeks to reposition them over the cheekbones, giving them a fuller and more natural look.
In some cases, Dr. Georgopoulos will recommend another procedure such as a blefaroplasty or brow lift to give an overall excellent appearance. The specific procedure to be carried will depend on your requirements and what will work best for you.
After the Mid-Face Lift
As with most aesthetic surgeries, some element of swelling and bruising will likely occur with a mid-face lift, and Dr. Georgopoulos will recommend a number of ways to minimise these effects. He will also prescribe medication should you feel pain after the procedure. It will be important to keep your head elevated as much as possible in the days after surgery. And you will be advised to avoid any strenuous activity for up to two weeks.
There may be some numbness in the period afterwards, but this will diminish quickly. There can also be a certain amount of scarring, although Dr. Georgopoulos is adept at reducing this as much as possible.
Dr. Georgopoulos will advise you during consultation of any potential side effects, which may include infection and slight scarring. The risks of these occurring are minimal, but it is important to be aware of them and the best methods to avoid them. Staff at the Geoplasty Center are trained to advise you on the best means of post-operative care.
