Can A Mid-Facelift Help Me Look Youthful Again?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Facelift surgery is among the most popular and transformative cosmetic procedures available today. Not only can facelift surgery help to combat the unwanted signs of facial aging, but it can also give patients a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is proud to offer a wide array of facial rejuvenation procedures to help men and women achieve or restore a more youthful, attractive look with long-lasting results. Learn more here about one of the most common types of facelift surgery, the mid-facelift, including what it is, how it works, and what results you can expect from a mid-facelift in Las Vegas, NV.

Do I need a facelift?

Because there are so many kinds of facelifts available, and because every person’s concerns and goals are unique, choosing to undergo facelift surgery is a very personalized process. Generally speaking, ideal candidates for facelift surgery should be:

  • In good overall health
  • Nonsmokers
  • Have concerns about mild, moderate, or advanced signs of facial aging

During your initial consultation for a facelift in Las Vegas, Dr. Khorsandi will take ample time to evaluate your concerns, discuss your ideal outcome, and explain all of your available options before recommending the most appropriate option for you.

Which kind of facelift do I need?

Depending on the nature and severity of your age-related concerns, Dr. Khorsandi will recommend the right type of facelift for you. Some of the most common facelift techniques include:

  • Traditional facelift (full facelift)
  • Mid-facelift
  • Lower facelift
  • Liquid facelift

Additionally, many patients combine facelift with brow lift, neck lift, cheek augmentation, and other facial rejuvenation surgeries for a more complete and dramatic transformation.

What is a mid-facelift?

Also known as a cheek lift, the mid-facelift is a popular surgery for patients with specific concerns about hollow or sagging cheeks. As we age, the skin loses some of its natural elasticity and fullness, often leading to a deflated, droopy look. During a mid-facelift, which can be performed endoscopically in many cases, Dr. Khorsandi addresses volume loss and sagging skin in the cheeks, and other features of the mid-face. With mid-facelift surgery, patients can restore a fuller, firmer, more youthful appearance. In fact, many patients report looking up to ten years younger after mid-facelift surgery.

Should I get fillers or facelift?

Injectable dermal fillers can be a fantastic solution for patients looking to add volume to their cheeks, smooth lines and wrinkles, and look more youthful overall. However, fillers do not address skin laxity and other signs of aging that can be improved with facelift surgery. Additionally, a surgical facelift offers much longer-lasting results compared with dermal fillers, which need to be reinjected at frequent intervals. Oftentimes, patients continue to use cosmetic injectables after facial rejuvenation surgery to boost and maintain their results over a long period of time.
