Cosmetic prevention, like a mid face lift, is often the key to stave off more drastic and invasive procedures later in life, such as a traditional, full facelift. When you start to notice beginning signs of aging, that’s the ideal time to begin non surgical rejuvenation to maintain your natural, youthful beauty and keep the aging process at bay. One of Dr. Sharon Giese’s most popular non surgical cosmetic procedures is the mid face lift. Dr. Giese offers the mid face lift at her NYC office, allowing you to enjoy the comfort, privacy and safety of her in-office, AAAASF Accredited, surgical suite that can’t be achieved in a hospital setting.
The non surgical mid face lift is significantly less invasive than its surgical counterpart. During Dr. Giese’s non surgical technique, she uses natural fat transfer instead of incisions and sutures to lift sagging in the mid face and smooth neck folds. This allows for noticeable and beautiful rejuvenating results without an extensive procedure, general anesthesia, stitches or scars. The non surgical mid face lift involves two simple treatments performed succinctly. First, fat cells will be removed from a donor location, such as the thighs, abdomen, flanks or love handles, using the most advanced liposuction technique available. This technique preserves the fat cells, so they can be transferred and grafted to the cheeks and neck during the second procedure. The fat is grafted through tiny, micro-incisions, smoothing neck folds and giving lift to the cheeks.
Results will be noticeable shortly after treatment. You may experience slight swelling or bruising in the treatment and donor areas, but those symptoms are minimal. A ten day recovery is expected from the double procedure of fat removal and fat grafting for the mid face lift, but because fat grafting to the cheek usually yields long-lasting results, maintenence appointments are rare.
|Mid Face Lift Insights|
|Ideal Candidates||Patients who are just beginning to notice the beginning signs of aging to the mid-face and neck.|
|Procedure||During the mid face lift, patients will receive liposuction to a donor location, and those same fat cell which are removed are then transferred to targeted locations at the cheeks and neck to smooth beginning signs of aging.|
|Technique Benefits||Unlike a traditional, surgical mid face lift, Dr. Giese’s non surgical mid face lift in NYC uses scar free techniques to reduce downtime, bruising, bleeding and risk during surgery.|
|Recovery||Patients typically experience 10 days recovery time for both the donor location where fat cells are extracted and the treatment area where fat cells are implanted in the cheeks and neck.|
|Results||Results are apparent shortly after the procedure once minimal swelling and bruising has dissipated. Because fat grafting to the cheek usually yields long-lasting results, maintenence appointments will be scheduled few and far between.|
|Outcome||In addition to their physical, aesthetic results, patients often feel a rejuvenated sense of self following a mid face lift in our NYC, AAAASF Accredited, surgical suite.|
