The midface lift allows for improved access to the entire lower eyelid and cheek, leading to precise corrections under direct vision as well as the ability to lift the muscle layer and excise excess skin, leading to more significant improvements. The trade-off is a mildly longer downtime compared with other procedures, and the requirement of the recovery period before full results are seen. However, very often the results are worth it.

Transfer of your own fat to the face when purified well and injected properly leaves fat cells, stem cells, and growth factors in well-vascularized planes and locations of the face.
