Mid-Face Rejuvenation

The influence of gravity also reveals the effects of aging in the mid-face over the years. The downward sagging of the fat pad on the cheekbone causes the fullness on the cheekbone to disappear. These subcutaneous tissues sagging appear as nasolabial fold, which is the excess skin extending from the nose to the lip edge, and causes this line to deepen. The aim of mid-face rejuvenation surgeries is to restore the fullness that gives a young and attractive appearance to the person on the cheekbone by replacing the sagging subcutaneous fat pads and to reduce the depth of this line by removing the nasolabial fold. In recent years, endoscopic surgery has also been used in midface rejuvenation surgeries through 3-4 cm oof incisions in the temple area in the scalp. With an incision, the soft tissues on the cheekbone are released. In some cases, 2-3 cm incision made from the groove between the lip and teeth helps to release this. The released fat pads are suspended on the intact membranous (temporal fascia) tissues in the temple region with one or two stitches. Thus, fullness on the cheekbone is provided and the depth of the nasolabial fold is reduced. Endoscopic midface rejuvenation surgery is preferred to be performed under general anesthesia. Generally, patients also have droopy eyebrows and forehead, and so forehead stretching and eyebrow lift are performed together from the same incisions. Patients can return home a few hours after surgery. The bruises and swellings around the face and eyes usually disappear within 7-10 days and the person can return to their daily activities and work within this period.
