Middle Face Lift Turkey
In time, an old and lifeless appearance form on the face due to tissue loss and sagging in the cheeks, the intersection of the lower eye and middle face and mouth edges. In middle face operations, small incisions in the hairy skin, under the eye and inside the mouth are used to enter under the skin and lift the skin and subcutaneous tissues which have sagged in the eyebrow, temporal, middle face and mouth edge areas; this results in a younger and livelier appearance. The deformed area between the lower eyelid and cheek area (lacrimal duct deformity) could be repaired.
This operation is frequently performed for people between 35-50 years of age, wanting to get rid of old and tired look and appearance with a deformity level not enough to require a full face lift operation. In middle face operations, build-up forms under the lower eyelids as well when the cheek tissue is lifted; lower blepharoplasty is conducted together with middle face lifting in general in order to remove this appearance. This operation is especially combined with lower blepharoplasty and fat injection applications. This way, a more natural, younger and livelier appearance is obtained for the whole face.
General rules apply for middle face lifting operations are stop taking or regulating Aspirin and other blood-diluting drugs least 1 week before the surgery, not consuming vitamins (such as vitamin e), herbal products (tomato seeds, cherry stalk etc) herbal teas, not taking any alcohol within 24-48 hours before the surgery, quitting smoke 3 weeks before the surgery and not smoking in the recovery period after the surgery.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Middle facelift operation takes about 3 hours in average. Usually, the patient needs to stay in the hospital for 1 night. Edema and bruises could be seen on the face during the first 24-48 hours after the operation. In combined operations, bruises and edema could take longer to disappear. Pain and tension could be felt for the first 1-2 days but this could be relieved with painkillers. Makeup could be done at the end of the first week, the patient could return to his/her job after 1 week. Bandage and special support are applied after the operation.
It takes 1-3 months for the face to take its final shape. In the long term, a certain amount of shagginess could form again with the effects of genetic characteristics and lifestyle but the face would not totally return to its previous form. Most of the time, these scars gain a very indistinct form in a few years. Still, the healing of the scar is specific to the person in question. Very rarely, some patients may experience excessive scar healing (cheloid, hypertrophic scar).
