What is a mid face lift?
A mid face lift elevates the area from the lower part of your lower eyelid to the corner of your mouth at about a 45 degree angle. It is done with sutures or a suspension device that dissolves over time called and is called an Endotine Midface and requires small incisions in the hairline and inside the mouth. The deep tissues are elevated off the bone through the mouth for the movement. The incisions should not be noticeable. The results can be subtle or very rejuvenating depending on the age of the patient and condition of the skin, muscles and fat.
