Youthful cheeks are full and rounded like apples, but over time the cheeks drop and flatten with age.
Dr. Azar offers an effective, but minimally invasive mid facelift in Thousand Oaks for Newbury Park and Westlake Village women and men called the mid facelift. He uses this technique to restore youthful fullness to the cheeks and reduce sagging along the jawline, with minimal scarring and recovery time. If you are wondering if a facelift is right for you, request a consultation with Dr. Azar to discuss the possibilities. Or you can call our office at (805) 373-7073 and one of our knowledgeable, friendly staff members will schedule your appointment.
Like a traditional facelift, an mid-facelift focuses on the middle of the face. This minimally invasive can be performed either through the low eyelid or through a traditional facelift incision.
This facelift technique gives the cheeks a very youthful and lifted appearance without the use of artificial implants. Patients experience no migration or infection with this technique. Dr. Azar may suggest a traditional facelift when patients require more significant correction. View Dr. Azar’s Facelift FAQs page for more information about this procedure.
Many of our mid facelift patients, who visit from Simi Valley, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, and other nearby communities, choose a more complete facial rejuvenation by having other procedures performed together.
A mid facelift typically takes about 2 to 3 hours, depending on whether it is combined with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Azar typically uses general anesthesia, but you may choose to have the procedure done under sedation. While experiences vary after surgery, most patients can return to non-strenuous activities in about a week. The tiny incisions usually heal very quickly, so you should be able to return to work in 10 days to 2 weeks.
