The midface changes with age, the effects of gravity, repeated muscle contraction, and lifestyle, causing the skin, fat, and muscle in this region to move downwards. When this occurs, the cheeks begin to look less plump, the lower eyelids can become puffy or hollow, and circles begin to appear under the eyes and the lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth deepen.
As a result newer techniques have been developed to improve this flattening and the descent seen in the mid face, with procedures effectively lifting the middle segment of the face by restoring the volume and fullness as well as enhancing the appearance of the cheekbones.
The midface area is an important consideration when thinking about facial reconstruction. as effectively creates a facial uplift that’s rejuvenated in a subtle, natural way with less bruising, swelling and downtime.
