The structures within the midface region are the area between the lower eyelids above and the upper lip below, including the nose in the middle and the area within the outward boundaries of the cheekbones. With age, the connective tissues that keep our skin robust get weak; and in addition to all, the fullness of the cheek decreases, the cheek droops, and the midfacial region collapses and flattens. The face loses its oval appearance, and becomes rectangular. The eye bags in the lower eyelids become prominent, and the lower eyelids look extended. A deep line forms between the cheek and eyelid. On the other hand, the sagging cheeks lead to the formation of two deep lines between the nose and the corners of the lips. Such deformations cause us to look tired, no matter how much we have slept or rested.
In the midfacial region, the objective is to put back the lost soft tissue, move the sagging structures upwards, and recover the impaired relation between the lower eyelid and the cheek. The rejuvenation procedures that can be carried out in this area can be listed as lower eyelid surgery, mid-face lift, suture suspension of midface, fat injections, and filling.
