Midface lift

If you already consulted cosmetic surgeon about facelift, you may know that area between lower eyelids and mouth is called midface. Unfortunately, years, gravity, external factors move skin and muscles of midface down. As a results cheekbones look flaccid, there are dark circles and swellings or hollows under eyes, and folds running from nose to corners of a mouth go deeper. Of course, aging is unavoidable, however midface lift will help overcome this and related aesthetical problems.

 

The major feature of midface lift is utilization of fixing device ENDOTIN, restoring natural contours and shape of cheekbones, and moving skin where it was in youth. Operationally, this result is reached, separating midface soft tissues from bone, and moving them higher, towards eyes, and fixing them in new position until tissues inosculate to bone. Midface lift restores volume of cheekbones and returns contour of youth to midface. As a result face looks younger, retaining natural appearance, without any sign of plastic surgery operation. Amazingly, midface lift, made by experienced plastic surgeon, creates visible, yet natural result.

 

Fixing device ENDOTIN is resorbable and consists from platform and 5 small teeth which grasp soft tissues and lift them (together with all layers) on desirable position. Midface lift is often combined with other plastic surgery operations, for example, with bottom face lift operation, eye surgery or brow lift. However most of patients younger 45-years perform midface lift as the only plastic surgery operation, because it is:

 

 

  • QUICK. It takes 5 minutes for our plastic surgeon to make midface lift utilizing ENDOTIN
  • CONVENIENT. ENDOTIN easily regulates skin tension and maintains the best control over height and projection of cheekbones.
  • RELIABLE. The operation utilizes patented technology of multi point skin fixing by Coapt, providing high reliability and optimal tension distribution.

Smoking and PLASTIC SURGERY operation ARE INCOMPATIBLE – TO REACH THE BEST RESULTS, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SMOKING!

 

  

WE RECOMMEND BEFORE OPERATION:
 

 

 Take 500 mg of vitamin C once a day within 1 month – helps to significantly reduce risk of haematomas;
Have some cooling bags and eye drops at home;
Have sun glasses with you coming to clinics.
 

 

 

MIDFACE LIFT is performed under general anestezia. The anestezia is carried out by highly skilled doctor-anaesthesiologist, who selects the ost suitable technique after examining your situation. However, you would not feel pain also under local anestezia. You will need to spend one day in our clinic under supervision of personnel if operation will be performed under general anestezia. You will also need to present to anaesthesiologist electrocardiogram and blood and an urine test results in case you decide to have general anestezia.
 

 

Midface lift works as follows:
Plastic surgeon makes tiny cuts over an ear or at a lower eyelid, and sometimes from the interior side of an upper lip.
Then he inserts small endoscope through these cuts, together with other tools which separate midface tissue from malar bones.
When tissue is separated from a bone, doctor moves it upwards (to eyes) and sideways (to ears).
As a rule, patient can go home the same day. If bandage is required, it’s removed in few days after operation. Hypostasis, arising in postoperative period of midface lift disappears gradually.

 

 

Hypostasis and bruises appear right after operation in midface area and disappear in few weeks. It is necessary to sleep with highly raised head at the first night after midface lift, so bruises and a swelling have lower visibility and intensity. To decrease discomfort and hypostasis, you can put ice on face. Probably, doctor will prescribe to take some soothing medications some time after midface lift operation. In few days you will be allowed to take a shower. Most of patients return to work approximately in 2 weeks after operation. In this period you may feel ENDOTIN by touch, but it will not be visible. As soon as it has been dissolving, you will feel it less.

 

 

Another additional, but really rare risks are connected with the fact that ENDOTIN is fixed in small holes, drilled in your skull bone, which if made improperly, may lead to a serious trauma. There are risks of bone infection or ENDOTIN detachment, it moves under skin and you feel it. At last, although ENDOTIN is biodegradable, there is a probability of slowing down dissolving process and you would rather prefer to remove it surgically, than to feel discomfort or other troubles.
