A common cause of under-eye ageing is the gradual dropping of the mid-face area. Usually, the eye trough shares the same contour as the cheeks in our youth without a visible distinction between the two areas. As the cheeks descend due to natural ageing, the difference between the two areas becomes more apparent. Treatment is aimed at harmonising the two areas for a naturally rejuvenated appearance.
The mid-face lift is a cosmetic facial rejuvenation technique that addresses the appearance of ageing in the middle part of the face. The mid-face refers to the face area between the eyelids and the cheekbones, down to the upper lip.

WHY FACE RESTORATION?
FEATURES, ADVANTAGES, & BENEFITS FOR OUR PATIENTS
At FaceRestoration, you will visit our luxurious London clinics, where you will receive a comprehensive assessment of your skin condition and overall health. As part of your treatment you will have the advantage of our Scars-less™️ programme for faster healing times and less postoperative scarring.
The purpose of a midface lift is to restore the cheekbone’s prominence and improve the site where the eyelid and cheek meet.
Usually, the procedure is a day case, which means there is no need for an overnight hospital stay. The procedure is generally done under general anaesthesia, so arrange for someone to pick you up afterwards, as it is unsafe to drive yourself home.
How long is the recovery time?
A midface lift typically takes 7-10 days to recover from, which makes it faster than a traditional facelift. Following the procedure, we recommend resting for a week before going back to normal activities.
How Long Do the Effects of a Midface Lift Last?
In general, the effects of a midface lift often last 10–15 years before ageing signs re-develop to the point that some people are inspired to seek a less invasive, non-surgical treatment to address specific problems.
What does the mid-face lift do?
Your skilled surgeons will manipulate muscle and move fat pads beneath the skin during a mid-facelift to:
- Aid in the smoothing out of creases and wrinkles.
- Remove any sagging skin and elevate and tighten the face skin.
- Fill the region around the eyes
