I had a mid-face lift and was delighted with my results. Now I want a necklift. Would I have been wiser to have had the full facelift rather than undergo these two separate procedures? I know I can’t turn back the clock but I am curious.
A midface lift is actually different than a full facelift. A midface lift is used to elevate the cheeks in an upward and often times outward direction to place the cheek pads of your face in more youthful position and give your face a fuller appearance. A facelift is really designed to address the lower face and is often times combined with a necklift because of the proximity of the incisions, and the continuity of the structures of the lower face and neck. Having a midface lift independently of a facelift is entirely acceptable, and if you are interested in having your neck addressed at this time, you can also consider having your jowls lifted if they are problematic for you.
