Mid Facelift in Naples, FL

Patients in the Naples area have the rare and exclusive option of mid-facelift surgery when their needs or concerns are applicable to this specific surgical procedure. The mid-facelift is a variation of a traditional full facelift that targets the midface, or the region between the eyes and the mouth. It is common for the fat and facial muscles to descend with age before many other areas of the face. In addition, the increasing lack of volume in the midface can contribute to wrinkles and creases like the nasolabial folds.

The endoscopic mid-facelift, offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Prysi, restores displaced fat and modifies facial tissue to produce a more youthful-looking facial appearance. Dr. Prysi prides himself on using innovative techniques and technology to provide natural, beautiful results to his patients throughout Southwest Florida.

“I had an endoscopic mid-face lift and brow lift and all I can say is WOWWWWW!!!! [...] I look younger, refreshed, stunning and most importantly - it looks NATURAL and I still look like myself!!! He knows exactly how to shape your face and make it lovely and feminine. Dr. Prysi is an expert artist when it comes to facial structure. [...] Don't second guess - He is simply the best of the best!”

“Dr. Prysi is truly a master of his craft. His skill is simply amazing. You will not find a better plastic surgeon. I am six months post op and the incisions are nearly invisible. I had no complications and I look and feel fantastic! He listens and addresses all my concerns/questions. He is attentive, friendly and pleasant. His staff is friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to see every visit. I feel so fortunate to have find such a skilled Surgeon and staff. ”

“Felt very comfortable with Dr. Prysi & staff. They were very thorough and left me feeling confident with my decision.”

Candidates for Mid-Facelift

If you wish to address early signs of aging in the mid-face area, a mid-facelift may be able to benefit you. You may be a candidate for a mid-facelift if you have one or more of the following concerns:

  • Sallow or hollow-looking undereye area
  • Sagging of your cheeks
  • Lines around your nose or mouth
  • Marionette lines (vertical lines running from the outer corners of your mouth to your chin)
  • Nasolabial folds

If you’re considering mid-facelift surgery or other facial surgical procedures, such as endoscopic composite facelift, you should be healthy with no medical conditions that could impair your healing or increase your surgical risk. It’s important that you have concrete, reasonable expectations and goals of the mid facelift procedure. Dr. Prysi will discuss your goals and expectations during a surgical consultation at his Naples, FL practice.

I pride myself on providing patients with the most natural-looking surgical results possible.”

What Happens During Mid-Facelift?

A mid-facelift is a minimally-invasive procedure that takes one to four hours. Anesthesia and sedation medications are administered to help you sleep comfortably during surgery. To begin, Dr. Prysi makes small incisions in your hairline. Through the incisions, he lifts any sagging cheek tissue (malar fat pad) to give your cheekbones a more youthful contour and smooth any lines around your mouth. He will also remove excess skin as needed to complement the cheek lift procedure that helps contour your mid-face. When Dr. Prysi is finished modifying the tissues and fat, he closes the incisions with sutures.

In some cases, the mid-facelift procedure is combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to rejuvenate saggy, droopy, or puffy upper and lower eyelids, or a brow lift to elevate the brows to provide a more youthful appearance A neck lift is also commonly recommended for people who have issues with jowls around the jawline or bands running vertically from the base of the neck to the chin. Any and all of these cosmetic procedures can help revitalize a youthful appearance and facial contour from every angle.

Recovering from Mid-Facelift

Because an endoscopic mid-facelift procedure is less invasive than a full facelift surgery, it does not require as much recovery time. It is not uncommon for mid-facelift surgery to cause temporary swelling, bruising, and numbness, but these side effects will disappear over time. Any discomfort can be controlled with prescription medication. It’s best to get ample rest and relaxation during your recovery and to avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting. Elevating your head when lying down and applying cold compresses to the treated area can help to reduce swelling.

Dr. Prysi will schedule several follow-up appointments with you to check your healing progress and remove your sutures at his Naples, FL office. He will also advise when it is safe for you to return to work, exercise, and your normal routine. Results from this cosmetic procedure can last up to 10 years, depending on each patient’s health and lifestyle.

What is the Cost of Mid-Facelift Surgery?
