Mid face lift or other options for a tired looking face, nasolabial folds and under eye hollowing

Fat transfer could be your answer. Many times, the cheek area and lower eyelids appear the way that they do secondary to a loss of volume in those areas. Fat transfer is the best thing to make the area look natural. It’s not magic, but when done right and with enough attention, it can seem like magic.

A midface lift, in my opinion, results in less than optimal improvement of the area. You can’t really take that much skin from a midface lift. Also, with a midface lift you can end up with eyelids that are pulled down like a hound dog. It also doesn’t look natural and you often get bunching in the lateral eyelid area. I think that a midface lift is only beneficial when you need to improve the lower eyelid when there is a problem with the lower eyelid function. Once you plump up your midface with fat, you can concentrate on improving the acne scars with different types of procedures including resurfacing and excision of your scars.

Facial Implants can help restore loss volume. They require small incisions in the mouth or other ares but mostly for the midface the implants can be placed through the mouth and sometimes through the lower eyelid area.  Silicone implants through Implantech are the types that I usually place.  These implants have a long history of success with low rejection and reactions.

I refined an amazing volumizing procedure called “the YoungLift”.  This is an innovative technique that volumizes your face to bring out the younger and natural you without looking like you had something done.  This is not a facelift and requires no incisions.  Only pinpoint puncture sites are used and these heal imperceptibly.  The YoungLift can be done without general anesthesia and without drains, and large bandages.  You also have a lot less downtime and discomfort compared with traditional facelift procedures.  I employsthe very best techniques from around the world into one volumizing procedure and he uses his internationally acclaimed understanding of facial beauty to create the youthful volume you once had. The YoungLift can also be used to volumize the midface area to bring out the younger and natural you.
