Older facelift procedures just pulled just the skin back tightly to provide a taunt, “wind tunnel” look. That happens because the surgeon started his work with incisions around the ears and into the hair where the scar is hidden. But the classic facelift did not do much to correct the fold of the mid-face around the nose, a crease known as the nasal furrow. However, the mid-facelift is a newer trend developed over the last ten years and is becoming more popular and attractive to patients in their 30s and 40s.
The mid-facelift focuses on a triangular area formed between the two corners of the eyes and the corner of the mouth. By working on the face’s deeper layers, the surgeon can reposition the underlying fat, and the actual muscles, so that the middle of the face is pulled up and looks more natural. It also takes the tension off the flesh. A mid-facelift can be performed in the doctor’s office in as little as an hour so the media often refer to it as the “lunchtime lift.” The procedure can be done by itself or along with a traditional facelift.
