What is a mid-facelift? Mid-facelift is also referred to as a cheek lift or vertical facelift that concentrates on the under-eye hollows and cheeks. It is a minimally invasive treatment that helps in restoring a youthful look to the face. The goal of a mid-facelift is to improve the appearance of the lower third of the face without any scars. The result is a more youthful, rejuvenated, and natural facial appearance.

As we age, there are chances for skin to lose tone and elasticity, causing the cheeks and eye area to sag. A less prominent or deficient cheek structure can make an individual's face appear gaunt, worn, or tired. 

Mid-facelift vs. full-facelift

Mid-facelift or cheek lift can be an effective surgical procedure to restore youthful volume and contour to the face.

Full-facelift surgery is designed to rejuvenate the entire face. It addresses sagging in the cheeks, jowls, and neck. A full facelift can also improve the appearance of the forehead and eyelids.

Here is a guide about everything you need to know about mid-facelift including the procedure, recovery time, and cost.

Mid-facelift can be performed individually or along with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery. The procedure may take 60 to 90 minutes approximately and it may take longer when combined with other procedures. 

  • The mid-facelift procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia with some sedation. 
  • The surgeon will make a small incision just below the hairline, in front of the ear, or inside the mouth. 
  • The surgeon will then separate the skin from the underlying tissues and muscles. 
  • The muscles and tissues are then tightened and the skin is redraped over the new contours. 
  • Then the incision will be closed with stitches.


A mid-facelift or cheek lift can correct the following facial concerns:

  • Sagging cheeks
  • Hollowing under the eyes
  • Lines and wrinkles around the mouth
