What are the pros and cons of the midcheek lift and who is a suitable candidate?
The midcheek lift allows for surgery to the entire lower eyelid and cheek under direct vision, leading to precise corrections and more significant improvements. The trade-off is a slightly longer swelling, bruising and downtime compared with other procedures, and the requirement of the recovery period before full results are seen. However, very often the results are worth it.
Individuals with prominent ageing features of the cheek and nasolabial fold, and those with multiple deficiencies in different layers of the cheek, would benefit from a midcheek lift procedure. Whilst non-surgical interventions can help with more subtle features of ageing, they often cannot give the significant change that a midcheek lift can achieve.
