MID FACELIFT IN BANGKOK, THAILAND

Mid facelift – a plastic surgery procedure designed to correct following beneath the lower eyelids and deep nasolabial folds which run from the base of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. It creates a more youthful appearance by smoothing the transition between the lower eyelids and upper cheek region. If improvement in the neck or jowl region is desired, a Mid facelift can be combined with a more standard facelift.

MID FACELIFT SURGERY

SURGERY

A mid facelift addresses some of the earliest signs of aging and is usually performed on patients concerned about sagging skin in the cheeks and the surrounding area.

It targets your cheeks and the under-eye area by pulling back the soft tissues for a younger, rejuvenated appearance. The procedure is usually performed using small incisions around the hairline to minimize scarring on the face.

A mid facelift is suitable for patients who do not have much loose skin or prominent wrinkles on the lower part of the face. It fully treats your upper cheeks and eyelid surface, and is also commonly known as a cheek lift.

Before & After

Before the Surgery

  • Read the pre-surgery instructions They will help prevent complications and improve outcomes for your surgery.
  • Medical history assessment (any allergies, serious medical condition and all medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
  • Avoid smoking   for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
  • Stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
  • Taking any medications should be avoided such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery, and also avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.

Recovery

  • A fair amount of bruising and swelling are expected for 1-2 weeks after surgery. Ice and ocular lubricants can be helpful early on. Stitches are usually removed 7-10 days after surgery. There can be a period lasting several weeks of an overcorrected or “Asian” appearance to the eyes which relaxes over a period of 4-6 weeks.

FAQs

Mid-facelifts are performed when a more subtle improvement is needed. Although a midface lift is similar to a facelift in that both address drooping or sagging skin, wrinkles and signs of premature aging, satisfying results can be achieved through smaller incisions with a mid-facelift. Also, patients who qualify for a mid-facelift generally need less muscle tightening, so there is less bruising.

Mid-facelifts are state of the art technology that not all plastic surgeons are skilled in performing. Therefore, it is vital that your screening process includes a review of before and after photographs of the doctor’s endoscopic mid-facelift results.

Am I a candidate for a mid-facelift?

Best candidates for a mid-facelift are people with hollowed out eyes, deep smile lines and a fallen brow. Typically, the

midface (cheek area) starts to drop in the mid-thirties and becomes more apparent in our 40-39’s and 50’s.

In general, we recommend mid facelift procedures for three reasons:

  1. A) A mid-facelift helps us address the lower eyelid better by padding the bony rim. We remove less fat and are able to

remove more skin without eyelid changes

  1. B) We can address corrugators muscles (there’s another big word! It is pronounced cor U gay tor) – the muscles between

the eyes that form an 11 – and make some people look like they’re angry even if they’re not. Addressing these eyebrow

muscles have a tremendous benefit to softening look that is a frequent complaint of patients.

  1. C) The eyebrows can be either raised or lowered – depending on what is indicated. Many patients are concerned that they

will have a following a facelift or brow lift. It’s important to know that with a mid-facelift and/or brow lift, we

can maintain the brow in the same position, lift the brow or lower the brow. Brow placement is an individual characteristic that is significantly affected by the patient’s desires.

Many factors including age, genetics, previous sun exposure, tobacco abuse, skin type and skin elasticity all play a role in assessing if a mid-facelift would be the right way to go. The only way to know for sure is a consultation with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon. Be sure your cosmetic surgeon is comfortable with the endoscopic approach to facelifts. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Since mid-facelifts can be performed endoscopically, incisions measure generally about one half to one inch. These

smaller incisions are placed behind the ears in the hairline so they are well camouflaged. The ear incisions have a small component that comes in front of the ear but still the incision is much less than that of a full facelift.

In general, yes. Midface lift involve less muscle tightening so there is less bruising. Patients typically return to work and activities in about seven to ten days although restrictions limiting heavy lifting, bending and straining along with aerobic activity remain for two weeks following the mid facelift procedure.

As we said, patients typically return to work and activities anywhere from seven to ten days although restrictions limiting heavy lifting, bending and straining along with aerobic activity remain for two weeks following the procedure.

Preoperative and postoperative mid facelift instructions are the same as for a full-face lift.

You need to stay in Thailand at least 7-14 days.

Follow up consultation and stitches removal are around 7 days after surgery.
