Is the cost of a mid-face lift cheaper than a regular facelift?
How much does a mid-face lift cost and is it cheaper than an average facelift? I'm looking for the pros and cons of having one of these two procedures, and one thing that's really important to me is the cost. They both seem to require the same amount of work anyways, so the price is really the deciding factor for me.
There are various methods to perform a mid-face lift. For me, the mid-face is the triangle between the inner and outer corners of the eyes and the corner of the mouth. I perform a mid-face lift through an incision just under the eyelashes. A midface lift does not address any laxity of the cheeks, jowls or neck -- that is where a traditional cheek and neck lift (ie a lower face lift) works best. It is therefore not a matter of cost between the two procedures -- but where the problems lie and which procedure would correctly address the problem. And sometimes the two procedures combined can provide spectacular rejuvenation.
