What is Recovery Like After a Midface Lift?

Swelling generally lasts one to two weeks. You may be advised to use ice for three to seven days following your procedure to allow for proper wound healing. Before you leave, you will be given instructions on when to follow up and how to properly care for the incision sites.

Most of our patients go back to their everyday activities three to four days after the procedure. Strenuous physical activity can be resumed after two to three weeks.

How Long Will My Midface Lift Results Last?

Once the soft tissues of the cheek have been lifted, they will permanently stay in a naturally more elevated position. Obviously, this is not going to prevent the loss of volume that occurs with age, and that is why an in-person consultation to evaluate the various aspects of the procedure is important. Patients find this procedure appealing because of its positive effect on cheek fullness and contour.
