Question: What is a midface lift? I can guess that it treats the midface, but what specifically does this include? How do I know if I need a midface lift or a regular facelift?
Answer: The midface lift is a term coined to address the tissues in the region from the level of the mouth to under the eyes. It will also tighten and strengthen these tissues. If this is the only area that needs rejuvenation this may benefit you. Some people use the term midface lift, in fact, as a more general term to really reference all facelifts as they are generally affecting the midface. However, quite often when you do a facelift you also address the neck and also the forehead to create a homogenous appearance of the patient.
