What is a Mid-Facelift?

A mid-facelift is a cosmetic surgery that corrects sagging skin in the mid-face and tightens the skin in this area. It provides the face with a younger-looking appearance and reduces the sunken look in the under-eye area that comes with age. A mid-facelift only targets the mid-face region.

As a very fair skinned 74-year-old female, I needed a facelift and neck lift. So, I consulted the best plastic surgeon in my Central Florida metropolitan city. The plastic surgeon said my surgery was too complex. He referred me to Dr. Afrooz saying he is the best plastic surgeon he knows. My surgery went flawlessly. Dr. Afrooz is a perfectionist! His entire team was courteous, prompt and responsive. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the surgery.

I highly recommend Dr. Afrooz which I already have to my friends.

Highly recommend this entire team!

Anne Grealy

It has been just 30 days since my surgery with Dr. Afrooz and I am exceedingly happy with my results already. Dr. Afrooz is an extremely talented and patient man and his entire staff is top notch. I did a lot of research online and narrowed my search to 3 doctors. After meeting with all 3 I decided that I would put my trust in Dr. Afrooz. To say this was important to me would be a tremendous understatement. Dr. Afrooz did a complete facelift and necklift.

William Coleman

When I finally met with Dr. Afrooz, the energy during that first conversation with him made me feel confident that I would obtain my desired results. His excitement, professionalism, and presence during every visit were markers that I highly valued. Dr. Afrooz is an EXPERT on the face; he knew exactly how to give me a thin, lifted nose that upgraded my facial structure. The difference isn't just in the side profile, but even in the front!

It is evident that he is truly a perfectionist and an expert in his craft. I am over the moon happy with my results and am grateful every day that I chose Dr. Afrooz and his team to do my surgery. I contemplated getting a rhinoplasty for many years and never found a surgeon that I truly felt comfortable moving forward with until I found Dr. Afrooz. I cannot recommend Dr. Afrooz and his team enough if you are wanting to get a rhinoplasty.

Megan Kliment

I believe that the great thing about his work is that he understands that what makes us beautiful as people are our unique features. He perfects your unique beauty instead of altering what makes you you.

Thank you for everything, Dr. Afrooz. You are the best.

Dr. Afrooz was the only doctor that said that he will do his best and he is very positive about the outcome of the surgery. And let me tell you he gave me more than he promised!

I had 2 prior surgeries before my reconstructive rhinoplasty and I had honestly given up hope. The moment we met I knew he was going to be the doctor to fix my nose. Patricia his patient coordinator was always available from day 1 to answer any questions and concerns, and Jess his lead nurse is beyond amazing and so caring. I am so grateful that my journey ended with Dr Afrooz and his staff and that I can for the first time in my life say that I love my nose.

Absolutely recommend Dr. Afrooz and his practice. Dr. Afrooz is very thoughtful and takes all the time you need as a patient. He won't push anything on you but is extremely knowledgeable and experienced.

Maaike Joris

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the nurses, they were all so nice and calming. My new nose still looks so natural and fits my face, more than my expectations could’ve been! Dr Afrooz really listened to my concerns and what I was wanting fixed. I highly recommend Dr Afrooz and his staff to anyone who is thinking of getting a rhinoplasty, I cannot imagine a more professional and caring team.

Daniela Ortega

My husband is thrilled with the results of the surgery. He was worried everyone would notice he had "work done". This couldn't be further from the truth. Our family and friends haven't said anything other than "your plant-based diet and swim workouts are doing wonders". The most important thing for me is seeing my husband, (who has always been handsome) regain the confidence he had 15 years ago and an amazing jawline to match!

Monica Gettleman

Dr. Afrooz has an amazing bed side manner and is very gentle and kind. He takes his time analyzing your face and coming up with a surgical plan. I was shocked by how easy and painless recovery was, which is another nod to the skill set of Dr. Afrooz. I am absolutely in LOVE with my new nose. My advice to anyone seeking rhinoplasty is to set up a consult with Dr. Afrooz.


What is the Procedure of a Mid-Facelift

A mid-facelift requires general anesthesia. When you are sedated, small incisions will be made around your ear and hairline. The incisions will be created to minimize and hide any potential scarring. After the incisions are made, the fat pads on your cheeks will be lifted, and minuscule sutures will be used to hold them in place. The muscles in the middle of your face will also be lifted. If needed, any stubborn fat deposits or damaged tissue will be removed as well. The incisions are then closed with either sutures or surgical tape.

What are the benefits of a mid-facelift?

A mid-facelift is a highly effective rejuvenating surgery and can create massive benefits for your appearance. Some of the benefits of mid-facelift are as follows:

  • Defined, tighter, younger-looking cheeks
  • Less puffy eyes
  • Less prominent nasolabial folds
  • More open and alert eyes
  • Younger-looking appearance overall

What is the Recovery Process from a Mid-Facelift?

The recovery process after a mid-facelift tends to be shorter and easier than a full facelift because the treatment focuses on a more specific area of the face. There will be some swelling and bruising after the procedure. However, the majority of this should go away within the first two days. It should take one to two weeks for you to make a complete recovery. It’s advised that to promote healing during the first few days of the recovery period you frequently ice the area and keep your head elevated when you sleep. You can also take pain medication to reduce any discomfort.
