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 Are the Differences Between a Cheek Lift and Midface Lift?

In general terms, a cheek lift is implemented with the lower third of your face, while a midface lift will be administered at the top of the cheeks to lift them. To improve the look of the lower half of your face, as well as your neck, you will need a cheek lift and potentially a neck lift. One or both of these procedures can be used to help Chicago, Glenview and Lincoln Park patients eliminate sagging skin under the chin and in the jowls. However, if you are having issues with hollows around the eyes and circles under your eyelids, a midface lift is the preferred treatment.

During your consultation, Dr. Cohen will discuss your options and help you determine which one will benefit you most.

How Does a Midface Lift Differ from a Facelift?

A midface lift is designed to elevate the cheeks alone. However, when you consider the term facelift, it typically refers to improving the neck or jawline. This is also known as a neck lift.

Both of these procedures vary from the popular “mini-lift,” which refers to a minor facelift that uses minimal incisions to improve the neck and jawline.

Those who undergo a midface lift will often receive an implant made from silicone or another medical grade material that is positioned through incisions in the mouth to plump the cheeks. Our cosmetic surgeon may also use fat removed from the thighs or abdomen to increase volume. A hairline or lower eyelid incision may also be used to lift the cheek tissue.

Regardless of the technique used, these procedures will create fuller cheeks and a younger appearance. When you consult with Dr. Cohen, he will evaluate your current facial structure, your goals and your overall medical history to provide the recommendations regarding which treatment options will create the look you want. 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.
