MIDFACE lift FAQs
A midface lift is a procedure involving PDO Threads which can lift sagging cheeks, restore cheek fullness, and soften smile lines. The procedure restores a refreshed and more youthful appearance to the cheek and midface area.*
Risks are those associated with filler and PDO threads which include bleeding, bruising, swelling, infection and asymmetry which usually resolves on its own within 3 weeks.
A midface PDO thread lift is intended to treat the middle 1/3 of the face – the region between the lower eyelids and the level of the mouth. A thread lift can also be used to treat the lower ⅓ of the face, from the corners of the mouth down to the jawline. In many patients, these two procedures are performed at the same visit, for a more complete facial rejuvenation.* A thread lift is different from a surgical facelift.
With the correct amount of elevation, the results of a midface lift are very natural, and generate a young, healthy appearance. Immediately after surgery, the cheeks often look unnaturally high, but this resolves during the healing process.*
Patients can expect a recovery of about one to two weeks after the midface lift. Swelling and bruising may occur and typically fades within a few weeks. Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Patients can usually return to work within a few days, if not sooner. We recommend strenuous activities be postponed for about two weeks.*
