Midface Lift Glenview & Chicago, IL

Restore facial contours

Fix Sagging, Drooping Cheeks

Who would have thought those years of counting calories, eating healthy and staying fit would act against you?  These things definitely keep your body in shape.  They also make sure you live a long and healthy life.

But as you get past 40, gravity starts to work on your face.

Your face loses volume, and your eyes to start look slightly sunken.  Cheeks start to hollow out.  The skin on your face loses its firmness and elasticity. You start to look older. Many people then look for ways to look younger.

You want to stay thin and fit for longevity, but it makes the problem worse.

But you don’t need to put on 10 extra pounds just to get your tight, full face back.  The answer is simple: a midface lift. A midface lift, or perhaps a neck lift, will help to restore the normal contours of your face so you can go back to the appearance of your younger years.

Midface lift surgery will improve your facial contours and restore your face to a full and youthful look.

There are several techniques for cheek and midface lifts.  For example during a midface lift, fat or other cheek implants can be used to make your face more full, and pronounced.  The specific technique that is best for you is based on several things: your current facial structure, previous facial surgeries, and your aesthetic goals.

During your free consultation, Dr. Cohen will go over your goals and medical history.  He will assess the situation, and let you know what is best for you.  It may be a midface lift, it may be a cheek implant or it might even be a filler. He may even recommend getting a neck lift in Chicago or Glenview to transform the look of your face and help you achieve the younger appearance you seek.

When you come in for your consultation, all of your options will be explained, and Dr. Cohen will put together a comprehensive plan to make your dream a reality.

What's The Difference Between A Midface Lift And A Cheek Lift?

A cheek lift traditionally refers to the lower third of the face and a midface lift refers to procedures used to lift the top of the cheek.

If you are looking for help in the lower half of the face and neck, a lower facelift/cheek lift is what you need. A neck lift may be another option in this area, helping to eliminate the appearance of sagging skin in the jowls and under the chin.  If your issue is under eyelid circles and hollows, then you are a candidate for a midface lift, instead.

On your consultation, Dr. Cohen will be able to help you understand your options, and which procedure will give you the long term benefit you desire.

How Is A Midface Lift Different To A Facelift?

Your goal with a midface lift is to elevate the cheeks. The general term “facelift” has come to mean improving the lower jawline or neck, although many people would consider a neck lift to be much the same thing.

Both of these procedures are different to a “mini-lift”, which is a type of facelift meant to improve the lower jawline or neck with minimal incisions.

A midface lift can be performed using Silicone or other implants which can be placed through incisions in the mouth to add volume to the cheeks. Fats can be transferred from the thighs or the abdomen to add lost volume. The cheek tissue can also be lifted through a lower eyelid incision or a hairline incision.

All of these techniques create more youthful and full cheeks.  The specific techniques that will be used on you depends on your specific features.

On your consultation, Dr. Cohen will assess your facial structure, your medical history and your goals.  With this information, he will educate you on your options, and what he recommends for you to hit your goal: a perfect face. Whether he recommends a neck lift, a midface lift or any other option, you can rest assured it will be the ideal choice for creating the results you want.

I went to the consultation with the idea of surgically removing the “bags” under my eyes and Dr. Cohen recommended this less invasive and more affordable solution. (unlike other doctors I spoke with~they were ready and willing to do surgery with no mention of another options…until I asked!). Dr. Cohen and his staff were great and I would recommend him to anyone!

I felt that I needed a bit of work to stave off the aging process. My visit with Dr Cohen was wonderful, he was professional and caring at the same time as he explained he did not want to over-enhance but accentuate my natural looks. I would rate both himself and his practice very highly.
