The midface is the central area of the face, thus the area between the eyes, upper lip, and ears. With age the adipose tissues recede, and, therefore, the midface loses volume and dimensionality. The tear troughs will become deeper with each passing days. You will look more tired and stressed. If the cheek fat deposits shift downwards even more, the face will be permanently flattened in its middle section. To make you look radiantly young and attractive, Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch operates on the sagging lower eyelid and pulls the sunken tissue of the cheekbone area back to its original place. As a result, the whole face will look more youthful and radiant.
Depending on the condition of your skin, for a midface lifting, Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch may also additionally inject the patient's own fat or stem cells in the deeper structure of the face. With this procedure, she will replenish the lost volume and reconstruct full facial features. A midface lifting is often combined with other cosmetic surgeries. For example, an eyelid lifting, a facelifting or a neck lifting. In a midface lifting procedure, are often also treated the deeper wrinkles either with a fat transfer or with hyaluronic acid fillers. The result is a young radiant look without any alteration to your unique facial features. The effect will last 15 to 20 years.
Depending on the extent of the surgery, the procedure lasts 2 to 3 hours.
Depending on the extent of the surgery, between 7 and 10 days.
Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch removes the sutures after 5 to 7 days. Subsequently, the sutured area will be covered with sterile strips for 2 to 4 days. As soon as the strips are removed too, you may wear makeup again, taking extreme caution. For the next 4 weeks, you may only practice light sports activities and you must avoid repeated flexions and lifting movements. Sauna and intensive UV exposure are also prohibited. To reduce as much as possible the risk of circulatory disorders, you should not smoke for 3 weeks before the surgery and for 3 weeks after the surgery.
The risks for a face/neck lift are postoperative hemorrhages, hematomas, swellings, feelings of tightness and pressure, impaired wound healing and infections. A tearing of the sutures and numbness (especially behind the ears) may also occur. Circulatory disorders of the skin, whose consequence may be the necrosis of certain areas of the facial skin, as well as lesions to vessels and nerves, should be avoided with correct surgical techniques, but may not be excluded completely in the case of anatomical variations. Finally, limited areas with reduced or increased skin pigmentation are also a possibility. As with every surgery, you may also incur the risk of thrombosis and embolism.
The costs for a midface lift depend on the extent of the surgery and will be agreed upon in advance. The price is inclusive of all services, such as the consultation, the surgery, the anesthesia, the medications, the hospitalization, the follow-up controls, and all potential corrective surgical procedures. The costs will not be covered by insurance.
