I am trying to decide between a full facelift and a mid-facelift. I know the recovery is much longer with the full facelift. I would like to know what facial improvements I would get with the full facelift that I wouldn’t get with the mid-facelift.
The improvements that you can expect with a full facelift compared to a midface lift are as follows. A full facelift is indicated when you have concerns with regards to the appearance of your neck and jowls. A midface lift is used when you have cheeks that need to be elevated. The midface can also be addressed with the use of dermal fillers and fat injections. The improvement in your appearance with these injectable fillers is remarkable. Injectable fillers and fat are not a substitute for a full facelift procedure.
