Procedure-overview

Patients in the Naples area have the exclusive option of mid-facelift surgery. Mid-facelift is a variation of traditional facelift that targets the midface, or the facial region between the eyes and the mouth. It is common for the fat and muscle in this area to descend with age. Lack of volume in the midface can contribute to wrinkles and creases like the nasolabial folds. The Endoscopic Mid-Facelift, offered by top Naples Plastic Surgeon Dr. Mark Prysi, restores displaced fat and modifies the tissues 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.

Naples & Fort Myers, Florida

During this procedure, three or more small cuts less than an inch long are made in discreet areas, such as above the hairline or behind the ear. Dr. Prysi will then insert a thin device equipped with a small camera through an incision. This allows him to monitor the procedure on a screen as he works. Small surgical instruments will then be used to remove excess fatty tissue and reshape the facial muscles, addressing sagging or drooping of the face.

“I was a patient of Dr. Prysi's 26 years ago after my leg was crushed in an accident. It required many surgeries for skin grafts and an artery transplant. His knowledge and skill are the only reason I still have my leg today. Very highly recommend. Thanks again, Dr. Prysi. ”

“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!”

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

What Happens During Mid-Facelift?

If you’re considering mid-facelift surgery or 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 surgery. Dr. Prysi will discuss your goals and expectations during a surgical consultation at his Naples, FL practice.

Because an endoscopic mid-facelift surgery 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 can last up to 10 years, depending on each patient’s health and lifestyle.
