One of these is the mid-facelift, an exciting new way to improve facial appearance and skin tightness. To schedule a mid-facelift consultation, call (408) 946-9453 or contact us online.

The end result is a more youthful mid-face area. Many people elect to have a mid-facelift performed at the same time as a traditional facelift in order to minimize the number of necessary incision and downtime.

The mid-facelift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, albeit with a follow-up appointment the day after. Some minor bruising and swelling is to be expected, and will subside in time. Mid-facelift recovery is generally considered to be minimal.
