Midface Lift Glenview & Chicago, IL

Restore facial contours

Fix Sagging and Drooping Cheeks

Regardless of what you do, even if you live a healthy lifestyle, eat well, and exercise regularly, at some point age and gravity are going to catch up. When this happens, one of the first places you will see the effects is in your face. However, there are options to fight the effects of aging.

What Happens to the Face as You Age?

As you get older, often around the age of 40, your eyes may begin to look slightly sunken and your face starts to lose volume. Your cheeks may hollow out and your skin will begin to lose its elasticity and firmness. If you are like many, you may begin searching for a way to restore your youthful skin and appearance. There are many cosmetic procedures that can create the effect you want.

Solutions for Achieving the Desired Effects

Some people may think gaining some weight will help add the volume you need and restore the healthy look back to their face, but this isn’t the answer. A better long-term solution is the midface lift. This procedure can help restore the contours that were previously present on your face so you can restore your youthful appearance. In some cases, a neck lift can provide similar results.

Midface Lift Techniques

We use several techniques for a midface lift. For example, we may use fat or even cheek implants to create a fuller and more pronounced look. However, we will provide you with a consultation to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

What's The Difference Between A Midface Lift And A Cheek Lift?

A cheek lift traditionally refers to the lower third of the face and a midface lift refers to procedures used to lift the top of the cheek.

If you are looking for help in the lower half of the face and neck, a lower facelift/cheek lift is what you need. A neck lift may be another option in this area, helping to eliminate the appearance of sagging skin in the jowls and under the chin.  If your issue is under eyelid circles and hollows, then you are a candidate for a midface lift, instead.

On your consultation, Dr. Cohen will be able to help you understand your options, and which procedure will give you the long term benefit you desire.

How Is A Midface Lift Different To A Facelift?

Your goal with a midface lift is to elevate the cheeks. The general term “facelift” has come to mean improving the lower jawline or neck, although many people would consider a neck lift to be much the same thing.

Both of these procedures are different to a “mini-lift”, which is a type of facelift meant to improve the lower jawline or neck with minimal incisions.

A midface lift can be performed using Silicone or other implants which can be placed through incisions in the mouth to add volume to the cheeks. Fats can be transferred from the thighs or the abdomen to add lost volume. The cheek tissue can also be lifted through a lower eyelid incision or a hairline incision.

All of these techniques create more youthful and full cheeks.  The specific techniques that will be used on you depends on your specific features.

On your consultation, Dr. Cohen will assess your facial structure, your medical history and your goals.  With this information, he will educate you on your options, and what he recommends for you to hit your goal: a perfect face. Whether he recommends a neck lift, a midface lift or any other option, you can rest assured it will be the ideal choice for creating the results you want.

When you set up your appointment with our Chicago or Glenview office, we will work hard to determine the best option to meet your needs and your budget. It’s important to have realistic expectations from the results. This is why it’s important to discuss what you are looking for so we can make the right recommendations and let you know whether what you want can be obtained.

I went to the consultation with the idea of surgically removing the “bags” under my eyes and Dr. Cohen recommended this less invasive and more affordable solution. (unlike other doctors I spoke with~they were ready and willing to do surgery with no mention of another options…until I asked!). Dr. Cohen and his staff were great and I would recommend him to anyone!

I felt that I needed a bit of work to stave off the aging process. My visit with Dr Cohen was wonderful, he was professional and caring at the same time as he explained he did not want to over-enhance but accentuate my natural looks. I would rate both himself and his practice very highly.
