Midface lift to address cheek issues and nasolabial folds

Losing volume in your face can lead to the nasolabial folds (or mouth folds, mouth wrinkles, mouth creases, nose lip wrinkles, nasolabial wrinkles) becoming more prominent.

  • A midface lift is not a favorite procedure of mine.  I think it shifts tissue upwards but it doesn’t address the nasolabial folds significantly.
  • The reason for this is because I think that the folds are really due to a significant volume loss in the cheek and lower eyelid region and bringing more youth back entails adding volume back to these areas.
  • Fillers are a great way to do this.  But they are temporary.  A more permanent filler would be fat injections to the area around the mouth and in the cheek.  This can be done without incisions and all that is needed are small puncture holes that heal essentially imperceptibly.

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.  Dr Young employs the 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.

Dr Young is located in Bellevue near Seattle, Washington
