It is different, less invasive than a traditional face lift while affecting areas which are not changed during the traditional procedure. As the name suggests, mid-face lift treatment focuses on the mid-face area, especially cheeks and skin around eyes. While it cannot be counted as a totally non-surgical face lift, the scope of cosmetic surgeon’s inference is smaller than in traditional facelift. It is reflected in the time of mid-face lift procedure and the fact, that it is an out-patient procedure and does not require staying in the night after in hospital.
