REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
As such, undergoing this procedure with a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Sedgh will result in natural-looking enhancements that increase the aesthetic quality of the skin and facial contours. Here are more benefits that you can get from undergoing a mid facelift:
There are several techniques used for facelift procedures, but in the case of a mid-facelift, it makes use of two approaches: open and closed. For the open approach, it is performed using either the deep plane technique or the traditional SMAS facelift. If done in conjunction with an endoscopic browlift, a mid-facelift can also be done using the endoscopic facelift technique.
Prior to the procedure, you will be sedated with either local or general anesthesia. Several small but deep incisions will then be created to gain better access the underlying facial tissues.
To accomplish the desired lift, Dr. Sedgh will elevate the tissues to the correct position, which will serve to tighten the skin and restore facial volume to the cheek area. Fillers, implants, or fat grafting may also be used to further improve the plumpness of the cheeks, or to improve the hollow appearance of the undereye area.
Due to Dr. Sedgh’s precise and artistic approach, your mid-facelift results should yield results that are noticeable yet natural, with little to no visible scarring on the treated area. A mid-facelift procedure should last about one to two hours, depending on the techniques used or the complexity of the case.
Swelling and bruising in the cheek area can be expected around 36 to 48 hours after the procedure, and can last up to two weeks. Depending on the extent of the surgery and your adherence to the prescribed medications and aftercare instructions, you should be presentable enough to return to your normal social activities in two to three weeks.
Dr. Sedgh will personally perform thorough evaluations of your recovery progress for the next few months up to a year (through a short clinic visit or via video conferencing) to monitor your healing and ensure a smooth and healthy recovery.
