Midface Elevation

Fixing those lower eyelids, cheeks and skin folds around the nose and the mouth

A Midface Elevation is considered when there is a hallowing under the eyes, a deep nasolabial fold (skin around nose and mouth) and the lower eyelid is sagging.

A more rested appearance and more youthful contour to the face are the precise goals of this procedure. They are achieved by blending the eyelid / cheek skin junction and decreasing the nasolabial folds.

*Individual results may vary


In a Midface Elevation, most dissections are done in deeper tissues through a lower eyelid incision and occasionally a temporal incision. Loose neck skin is treated with the same incisions and dissection as in a standard facelift.

Other Points: Additional procedures that would enhance the result are: Upper Eyelid Lift, Brow Lift, Chemical Peel, Chin Enlargement, Fat Suction, Cheekbone Enhancement, Enhancement of Lips and Reduction of Earlobes.

Insurance Guidelines: This procedure is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment.
