From our doctor:
"Mid-face region which is made up of structures such as lower eyelids, cheeks and cheekbones, is prominent in the formation of the characteristic facial image. Sagging and decreased fullness in cheeks, bags in the lower eyelids, deep lines or a dimmed temporal formation may cause a person’s face to look old and tired. A mid-face lift surgery combined with suspensions, fat injections and cheek implants, can eliminate this problem and it can ensure that you have a younger looking facial structure.”
Usually middle-aged and older patients are optimum candidates for this procedure. It is often combined with other facial lift surgery. This surgery is suitable for people with gagging and pronounced reduction in the cheeks, formation of bags under the eyes, deep lines in the upper lip region.
After analysis of medical history and physical examination, the technical operation criteria are evaluated to determine the operation method. The anesthesiologist checks any obstacles before the operation and necessary blood tests are done before the surgery. In case of chronic diseases that may affect the operation, other additional tests or consultations may be necessary. If you use any blood-thinning medication it should be discontinued at least 1 week in advance the operation. Smoking can impair wound healing in some patients. There is no need to stop using drugs necessary for other chronic diseases.
The mid-face lift surgery is done under sedation or general anesthesia in the hospital environment. Surgery time ranges from 1-3 hours depending on the additional processing. The process is performed by your plastic surgeon according to the method decided before the operation. Used techniques include lower eyelid bleferoplasy, fat injections, endoscopic mid-face lifting and suspension techniques. Bags under the eyes are corrected by removing excess fat in this area. Face lift procedure is performed through a small incision made in the mid-face. Lines formed around the rim and can be flattened with the aid of lip fat injections during surgery. Sagging excess skin tissue is removed.
In the 4th post-operative hour, food intake starts and the patient gets off bed to start walking. There may be a slight pain due to tightness in his face. The pain is most usually less then what is expected and pain relievers can be used to provide adequate assistance. Patients are discharged on the same day or the next day. Patients can take a shower after 1 or 2 days. Some level of face edema and swelling can occur and it passes completely in about 2-3 weeks. Patients can return to daily life in about 1 week. Face bandages are applied for the first 2-3 days after surgery.
Temporary problems: tenderness, pain, tightness.

Medius Face Lift and Permanency
The result of the lower face and neck lift surgery is generally permanent. However, aging continues. With aging, it is natural that relaxation of facial tissue takes place though the years. Non-surgical rope suspension techniques also need to be repeated a few years later.
