If you have sagging cheeks, but no jowls or banding of the neck, then a mid-face lift may be the best for you. Mid-facelifts address deep nasolabial folds and can be an alternative option to injectable materials. Midface lifts tighten and smooth the skin and muscle tissue in the cheeks. Depending on the aesthetic needs of each Bellevue / Seattle mid facelift patient, Dr. Young may employ a small incision above the ear and by the temple; or he many use very small incisions inside the mouth or under the eyelid. Permanent stitches secure the fat pads of the cheek to the right position. Compared to a full facelift, mid-facelift Seattle patients enjoy quicker recovery and a shorter wait for the final results.

In addition to mid-face lifts, Dr. Young believes in the idea of volumizing your cheek and midface area. He incorporates fat injections, and temporary fillers to achieve this volumizing. One amazing option that he has developed is the YoungVitalizer and you can click here to read more about it.

This procedure is a great option for facial rejuvenation for the mid-face or the face in general. It is our incision-less facelift alternative. It is minimally invasive, does not require general anesthesia, and is associated with much less discomfort when compared to traditional procedures. The other option that is even more minimally invasive are temporary fillers, like restylane, radiesse, perlane and juvederm. You can read more about fillers here.

Dr. Young has discovered a New Theory on Facial Beauty that can be applied to create ideal balance between the facial features. As one ages, the tissue in the cheek decreases in volume and descends. This can often cause the lines around your mouth to become deeper and the bags around your eyes to become more accentuated. Dr. Young applies his internationally renowned understanding of facial aesthetics (Circles of Prominence theory) when performing mid-facelift in order to provide each mid facelift Seattle / Bellevue patient with the best possible results.
