Midface Lift Surgery

The traditional facelift has been used to tighten the facial skin, usually suspending the facial skin higher into the hairline. While this type of facelift and facial rejuvenation surgery is effective for the forehead and upper eyelid region, it does not impact the midface region under the eyes and down to the jowls. However, the midface lift surgery is a more advanced technique that addresses these areas, giving patients a more powerful option to reduce the signs of aging.

One of the most significant changes in the face when it ages is the drooping and loss of fatty tissue in the cheeks. This sagging is what creates deeper bags under the eyes, a pronounced fold between the cheek and nose, plus the sagging jowls that are associated with age. A midface lift moves the molar fat pads back up to their original level, giving the midface region a youthful appearance.

Cheek Lift Surgery

The midface lift is also referred to as a cheek lift surgery since it primarily is a lifting of the soft tissue of the cheek. There are many nuances to this surgery that can be enhanced depending on the patient. Some patients may need a lift and the addition of tissue to fill out the cheek area. This can be achieved through cheek implants, fat transfers, and in some cases, facial fillers, which Dr. Khosh may suggest as part of the procedure.

If you have deep bags under your eyes or have a noticeable sagging in your jowls, a midface lift surgery might be the best solution to turn back the hands of time. Contact us today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Khosh to determine whether the midface lift or other facelift options will best meet your needs.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
