Traditional rejuvenation on the midface has been predicated on extension of laterally based rhytidectomy techniques. Recently, attempts to improve this area have been performed through brow access points and are directed superolaterally. Transblepharoplasty approaches have in the past focused on limited rejuvenation of the immediate periocular area. The technique described in this article is a method by which the multiple directions of midfacial aging can be reversed and corrected with greater safety and better visualization than previously described.
