What is a Mid Face Lift?
A mid face lift addresses the tissues of the middle of the face, tightening and firming the skin around the eyes, the nose, and in the cheeks. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Nordberg
will use one of two different techniques to perform the procedure. The traditional lift, which requires an incision in your lower lash line, is ideal for patients who only require an upward lift. The endoscopic technique creates two incisions in your temples at your hairline, and is best for patients who need both an upward and diagonal lift.
A mid face lift provides faster, more targeted results than a traditional face lift, and it is often a more affordable procedure as well. After a mid face lift procedure, you can expect to see smoother and firmer skin, with fewer wrinkles and sagging. Your skin should look rejuvenated and you could enjoy a more youthful appearance as well.
What Can I Expect During and After My Procedure?
Prior to the surgery, you will meet with Dr. Nordberg to discuss your goals for treatment. He will carefully evaluate your skin to determine whether you are a candidate for a mid face lift and which technique is best. Although the procedure takes about an hour on average, it is still considered major surgery. We will place you under general anesthesia so that you are completely sedated for your surgery.

During the procedure, Dr. Nordberg will make the necessary incisions and then lift and tighten the skin and muscle beneath to firm the skin. After your incisions are closed and you are fully awake, you will be provided with post-surgical instructions. You will need to arrange for someone to drive you home.
Recovery from a mid face lift typically takes one to two weeks. You will experience some bruising and swelling, but significantly less than what you would experience with a traditional face lift
. You will return to our office about a week after your procedure to have your stitches removed and for Dr. Nordberg
to evaluate your progress.
Am I a Candidate for a Mid Face Lift?
Most patients who elect to have a mid face lift are in their 30s or 40s and want to eliminate signs of aging. A mid face lift is ideal for any patient who does not require a traditional, full face lift. Patients should be in good general health to reduce risks of complications, and have a thorough understanding of what results they can expect to achieve.
