What is a Mid Facelift?

A mid facelift is a surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging in the middle region of the face, including the cheeks and under-eye area. It targets sagging skin, loss of volume, and deepening of facial folds to restore a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Gartner’s expertise ensures exceptional results that enhance your natural beauty.

How Does a Mid Facelift Work?

During a mid facelift, Dr. Gartner utilizes advanced surgical techniques to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The procedure typically includes the following key steps:


To ensure your comfort throughout the surgery, Dr. Gartner will administer either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. The choice of anesthesia will depend on your specific needs and preferences.


Dr. Gartner carefully places incisions within the natural contours of the face, typically along the hairline and around the ears. These incisions are designed to minimize visible scarring while providing optimal access to the underlying tissues.

Tissue Repositioning and Tightening

One of the primary goals of a mid facelift is to reposition and tighten the underlying facial muscles and tissues. Dr. Gartner skillfully lifts and tightens these structures to address sagging and restore youthful volume and contours to the mid-face.

Fat Grafting or Facial Implants

In some cases, additional volume may be needed to achieve optimal results. Dr. Gartner may perform fat grafting, where fat is harvested from another area of your body and injected into the mid-face to restore lost volume. Alternatively, he may use facial implants to enhance and augment the contours of the mid-face.

Excess Skin Removal

During a mid facelift, Dr. Gartner removes any excess skin that has lost its elasticity on the face. This removal process helps to eliminate wrinkles, folds, and loose skin, resulting in a smoother and more youthful facial appearance for the patient.

Incision Closure

Once the necessary modifications have been made, Dr. Gartner meticulously closes the incisions with sutures or skin adhesives depending on the patient. This step promotes proper healing and minimizes the visibility of any resulting scars.

Recovery and Healing Process

After a mid facelift, it is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort which will go away on its own. Dr. Gartner will provide detailed post-operative instructions to guide you through the recovery process. Some of these instructions may include:

  • Keeping your head elevated to minimize swelling after the surgery.
  • Applying cold compresses to reduce bruising or swelling.
  • Taking prescribed medications to manage any discomfort.
  • Avoiding strenuous activities for a specified period of time.
  • Attending follow-up appointments at our New Jersey clinic to monitor your progress.

By following these instructions, you can support proper healing and achieve optimal results from your facelift. Most patients can expect to resume normal activities within two to three weeks, although it may take a few months for all swelling and bruising to fully subside.

Expected Results and Benefits of a Mid Facelift

A mid facelift offers numerous benefits, helping you achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Some of the key benefits include:

Restored Facial Volume

As we age, the mid-face region often experiences a loss of volume, resulting in a sunken or hollow appearance. A mid facelift restores youthful volume to the cheeks and under-eye area, giving a more plump, youthful and rejuvenated look.

Smoother Facial Contours

By lifting and tightening the underlying tissues, a mid facelift can smooth out facial folds and creases, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Enhanced Cheek Definition

The mid facelift procedure can enhance cheek definition, restoring the natural contours of the mid-face. This can contribute to a more balanced and harmonious facial profile.

Improved Under-eye Area

A mid facelift can address concerns in the under-eye area, such as bags or hollows. By repositioning and redistributing the tissues, it can reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and restore a more vibrant and rested look.

Mid Facelift FAQ’s

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mid Facelift?

Ideal candidates for a mid facelift are individuals who have noticeable sagging or drooping in the midface area, but do not require a full traditional facelift. Good candidates are generally in good health, have realistic expectations, and are committed to following the pre and postoperative care instructions.

What is the Recovery Period Like After a Mid Facelift?

Recovery after a mid facelift varies for each individual, but most patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort for the first week or two. Pain medication may be prescribed by Dr. Gartner to manage any discomfort. It’s important to follow postoperative care instructions provided by your surgeon to promote proper healing and minimize complications.

Will There Be Visible Scarring After a Mid Facelift?

During a mid facelift, incisions are typically made within the hairline or inside the mouth, minimizing visible scarring. Your surgeon will strategically place incisions to ensure they are discreet and well-hidden.

How Long Do the Results of a Mid Facelift Last?

While a mid facelift can provide long-lasting results, the aging process will continue over time. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and sun exposure can affect the longevity of the results. However, most patients can enjoy the benefits of a mid facelift for several years before considering additional procedures.

Are There Any Non-Surgical Alternatives to a Mid Facelift?

Non-surgical options, such as dermal fillers and injectables, can provide temporary improvement in the midface area. However, these alternatives are not as effective in addressing significant sagging and may require more frequent maintenance treatments compared to a surgical mid facelift.
