The surgical procedure can be customized based on your unique concerns. There are several types of facelift, each of which has its own unique benefits. Continue reading below to learn more about the differences between these facelift options.

A mid facelift, known as a cheek lift, is a surgical procedure specially designed to treat an area where signs of age appear earliest: the cheeks. The procedure can add more youthful contours beneath your eyes and above your mouth, making you have a refreshed image.

A mid facelift is excellent if you have cheeks that sag. Sagging cheeks is an issue that often occurs because of volume loss in the midface region, resulting in a droopy appearance. A mid facelift is also ideal if you have developed deep nasolabial folds and are beginning to develop jowls. Many people correct these concerns by having a dermal filler injected, but this is only a temporary solution. A mid facelift offers long-lasting results.

A mid-facelift involves making small incisions around the hairline and ear. Through these small incisions, an endoscopic camera is inserted to tighten and smooth muscle. The procedure also involves elevating your cheek fat pads (malar pads) to create the appearance of more elevated cheekbones. Once the fat pads are in a suitable position for your unique facial structure, they are sutured and the incisions are closed. The entire procedure lasts approximately two hours.

A mid facelift can create dramatic results, shaving yours of age off your image. Your facial structure will have more prominent cheekbones that are taut and lacking in sags. When the procedure is complete, you may notice your cheeks are too defined, but they will gradually settle into a more natural position as time goes on. A mid facelift is not intended to impact the lower face or neck, but there are other options if that is what you desire to correct.

A mini facelift is an exceptional procedure that helps minimize sagging around the lower part of your face. The treatment is a slightly modified version of a traditional facelift that involves less excessive skin removal. At Marotta Plastic Surgery, Dr. Marotta has developed a unique method for a mini facelift known as EZ Lift™ that requires fewer incisions and a reduced recovery time.

A mini facelift is an ideal procedure if you have minor concerns and aren’t ready for a general facelift. This surgical procedure is exceptional for treating lines and wrinkles found near the mouth and chin, loose skin around the neck and sagging around the chin. The procedure also works well in conjunction with additional treatments, such as an eyelift or dermal fillers, to further your results.

The surgical procedure involves making a small incision at the top of your ear and near your earlobe. Through these incisions, your tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed, and your remaining skin is lifted into a flattering position to your facial structure. Dissolvable sutures are then put into place, making the incisions less noticeable. The entire procedure usually lasts less than two hours.

Your mini facelift will create beautiful results that will have you looking more youthful and energetic. Although the procedure is not as extensive as a full facelift, it can still create dramatic results, especially when combined with additional treatments or procedures.

A full facelift, also known as a traditional facelift, is an exciting opportunity to revamp your appearance completely. The procedure is more extensive than a mini facelift and a mid facelift but creates dramatic, long-lasting results.

A full facelift is often considered the gold standard in facial rejuvenation. The surgical procedure can treat a wide range of cosmetic problems. If you struggle with a combination of sagging, wrinkles and lines across your face, a full facelift may be right for you. The procedure can treat sagging in the cheeks, sagging along the chin, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and bands across the neck.

As mentioned, a full facelift requires more extensive work. The procedure utilizes longer incisions because work is performed on a larger region of your face. Where incisions are made depends on the extent of the work you need and which areas you are targeted specifically. After the incisions have been made, your skin is separated from the muscles and deep tissues. Excess skin and tissues are removed. Your skin from your temples, cheeks and neck is then lifted and repositioned to be tauter. The incisions are then closed with sutures. The procedure can take two to five hours.

A full facelift creates long-lasting results that can last eight to 12 years, or even longer as long as good health is maintained. After you have fully recovered, your face will be visibly younger. Your jawline and cheeks will be more defined, sags will be eliminated, and lines and wrinkles will no longer be an issue. A full facelift is an extensive procedure, but the results are phenomenal.

A facelift is a versatile treatment that can revive your image. A mini facelift is incredibly beneficial if minor cosmetic flaws are a concern for you. If your cheeks have lost their shape, a mid-facelift will do. A full facelift will completely rejuvenate your look.

SMAS Imbrication With Deep Plane Component 

A standard Blair incision should be marked. In men, the incision runs between the posterior border of the sideburn and the anterior margin of the tragus to avoid pulling hair-bearing skin too close to the auricle. Using a #15 blade, the incision is made through the dermis. A subcutaneous flap is elevated until the line between the lateral canthus and the angle of the mandible is reached. At this point, the plane of elevation dives deep to run between the malar fat pad and the zygomaticus major muscle. The zygomatic retaining ligaments are then released.

Once the fat pad is elevated, attention is turned to the SMAS. A strip of SMAS is incised starting 1 cm anterior to the tragus at the superior border of the zygomatic arch and carried inferiorly to the level of the angle of the mandible. This strip of SMAS should be about 1 cm in width and remain pedicled inferiorly. The SMAS flap is then rotated toward the mastoid and secured to the periosteum with a braided non-absorbable suture, such as coated polyester via half mattress sutures.

The malar fat pad is now be placed in a more youthful anatomic position along with the malar eminence and secured with a fibrin sealant or loose 4-0 sutures, taking care to ensure symmetry between the left and right cheeks.A drain can be placed in the occipital/temporal scalp near the incision or at the most posterior aspect of the incision and placed under bulb suction.

The skin is then re-draped over the face and tailored to the incision by excising the redundant skin. Deep dermal sutures are placed throughout the incision using an absorbable suture (e.g., 4-0 or 5-0 poliglecaprone). In the temporal hairline, either absorbable suture (5-0 plain gut) or staples may be used. The incision anterior to the ear should be closed with a non-absorbable suture (e.g., 6-0 polypropylene). The postauricular skin incision should be closed using an absorbable suture (e.g., 5-0 plain gut).

Bacitracin is then be applied to the incision. An external facelift dressing is placed using a combination of fluff sponges, a gauze wrap, a compressive elastic wrap, and ice packs.

Minimal Access Cranial Suspension Lift

Using a similar incision to that described above, a subdermal elevation is completed over the midface, leaving the malar fat pad down in the wound bed. Then, an 0 polydioxanone suture is used to create a purse-string surrounding the malar fat pad and ultimately suspending it under tension to the deep temporal fascia just lateral to the lateral orbital rim via a window in the orbicularis oculi muscle. The muscle window must be closed before redraping and excision of excess skin to reduce the palpability of the knot. If necessary, similar purse-string sutures may be used to lift the remaining mid and lower face soft tissue, to reduce jowls and improve mandibular definition.

Subciliary Midface Lift 

A subciliary incision is made from the level of the lacrimal punctum laterally to a point 7-10 mm beyond the lateral canthus. A traction suture is applied through the eyelid margin for a superior retraction and corneal protection.

The orbicularis oculi muscle is incised inferior to the pretarsal portion to preserve eyelid function and lower the risk of postoperative ectropion. Dissection is carried inferiorly in a preseptal plane to the inferior orbital rim and the arcus marginalis. This can be done as a single skin-muscle flap or in separate layers according to surgeon preference. This approach also provides access to the lower eyelid fat pads if necessary for reduction or repositioning.

What is mid-face lift surgery:

Mid-face lift surgery is a relatively new treatment. Incisions are made on the side of the eyes allowing Dr. Verma to gain access and reposition the muscles and natural fatty areas of the cheeks by pulling them up. These repositioned tissues are then stitched to the structures on the sides of the eye sockets. Unlike a facelift, a mid-face lift addresses the middle of the face and concentrates on the areas around the eyes to correct under eye bags, for the correction of hollowness in the upper cheeks, to correct prominent nasolabial folds and lines forming a downturned mouth.

Where is it done:

Dr. Verma performs mid-face lift surgery in Honeysuckle Day Hospital, a new purpose-built cosmetic surgery facility located in Newcastle.

Length of Surgery:

Typically mid-face lift surgery will take between 60-90 minutes, however, it may be longer if it is combined with another procedure.

Type of anaesthesia:

General anaesthetic.

Day surgery or inpatient stay:

Day Surgery

Approximate Cost:

Costs will vary for each individual’s requirements. When you have your consultation with Dr. Verma, he will discuss all aspects of the procedure and will arrange for you to receive a detailed treatment plan that includes a quote outlining all details of costs excluding anesthetist fees and hospital costs which are provided as a separate item.
