Rejuvenation of the Midface
24 June 2003 (online)
Mid-face rejuvenation has long been a difficult area for aesthetic facial surgeons. In this article the author reviews the techniques currently available and examines in-depth two techniques that he feels are noteworthy for their efficacy in improving mid-face aging. One of these techniques is the “SMAS division mid-face lift” which targets aging of the mid-face associated with a deep nasolabial fold. The other technique is known as a “SOOF lift blepharoplasty” and helps to improve aging of the lower lid associated with a tear trough deformity. Facial aesthetic surgeons should gain a better appreciation of the approaches available for improving this challenging area after digesting the contents of this review article.
