Plastic Surgery Budapest - Facelift - Midface-lift Surgery

With ageing, the skin looses its elasticity and stretches. In the face, this produces skin creases and folds, jowls and loose skin, and fat in the neck. Several types of facelift procedures can relieve these ageing features, by removal of excess skin, suspension of the underlying muscles (SMAS) and rebuilding the supporting ligamentous structures for long lasting improvement. The mid facelift is most suitable for women in their early to mid forties whose neck is still in good condition.

The mid-facelift rejuvenates the central section of the face from the lower eyelid to the upper lip, by repositioning sagging tissues and enhancing the volume of soft tissue that is lost in the mid-face with age, sun exposure, and gravity.

A variety of other procedures can further enhance the outcome of a mid-facelift. They include:
  • Facial implants
  • Soft tissue augmentation to re-contour the facial structure
  • Resurfacing techniques to improve the tone and texture of facial skin
  • Wrinkle reduction by injextion

The patient's head will be wrapped in a bulky bandage immediately following surgery to promote the best molding and healing. The ears may throb or ache a little for a few days, but this can be relieved by medication. Within a few days, the bulky bandages will be replaced by a lighter head dressing similar to a headband.


You must note

As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. The texture and quality of the skin will not be changed or altered by a facelift surgery. Acne scars, age spots, fine lines and smoker’s creases will soon return to their original consistency, no matter how tight the skin is pulled. A facelift will not provide someone beautiful skin unless they have beautiful skin to begin with.A range of non-surgical cosmetic procedures are available to improve texture and appearance of skin like laser resurfacing, IPL or microdermabrasion.

Injury to the nerves that control facial muscles is usually only temporary, but can result in numbness to some areas of the face. Operation scars are permanent. They do fade over time and are usually hardly noticeable, as they are often hidden, either by your hair or the natural creases in your skin. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon's instructions both before and after surgery. The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can only be determined at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
