What Is A Midi Facelift?

The term midi facelift, or mini facelift, is used to describe a procedure which is less invasive than a standard facelift. The treatment is perfect for those who are looking for an enhancement to their face without undergoing the full facelift treatment. Midi facelifts are capable of reducing the signs of ageing and are a great option for those who are looking to rediscover their youth. 

In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at the midi facelift procedure and how the treatment looks at Evolve Medical.

What Does The Midi Facelift Procedure Involve?

At Evolve Medical, the midi facelift procedure includes making discrete incisions around the ears or in the hairline, which allows the surgeon to remove and tighten excess skin. Incisions are made in these areas to keep any visible scarring to a minimum. The excess skin is surgically removed and the wounds are then carefully sutured into place.

A midi facelift is designed to specifically target key areas of the face such as:

  • Chin
  • Jaw
  • Jowls
  • Neck

What Are The Benefits Of The Midi Facelift?

One of the key benefits of a midi facelift is that it’s carried out using local anaesthetic, rather than general anaesthetic which is used for a standard facelift, which means far less downtime for the patient. This contributes to a less intensive and less invasive procedure which makes it a preferable choice for many.

Often, signs of ageing are more prevalent in the lower half of the face, which means that having a treatment which addresses multiple areas in a single procedure can be a more direct way of getting the results you want. Compared to a full facelift, which addresses the whole face, a midi facelift only treats the lower proportions of the face.
