Exploring the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift
Depending on the degree of necessary dissection, and patient comfort with local anesthetic only, the procedure may be done under local or regional block with or without sedation, or under general anesthesia or some variation of it. Marks are made with the patient upright; the transcutaneous approach may be taken through a number of incisions, but most commonly just under the lower lash line. The appropriate anesthesia is then administered, and the superficial eyelid tissues infiltrated with local.
The dissection is carried to the septum and further down to as far as the crease on the side of the nasal alae (flaring portion of the nose), this is done in the subperiosteal plane (under the facial bone covering). The septum is then opened, the fat in question removed or repositioned symmetrically, and the lid tightened horizontally. Symmetric holes in the cheekbones are made with a handheld drill. A hook-like absorbable device is placed into the holes and the previously dissected cheek fat pads are suspended in an elevated position by hooking them on the previously placed ENDOTINE ® Midface Lift devices, adding bulk to the cheek-bones and improving the smile lines (nasolabial folds). A very conservative extra skin excision is performed, and the incisions closed.
Understanding the Procedure
The ENDOTINE® Midface Lift revolutionizes the cosmetic procedure by specifically targeting and addressing sagging and aging in the midface region. It offers a non-surgical solution for individuals seeking a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
How the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift Works
During the procedure, the surgeon strategically places small biocompatible devices known as ENDOTINE® implants beneath the skin. These implants lift and reposition the underlying tissues of the midface. This technique provides long-lasting results, restoring a natural and refreshed look.
Advantages of the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift
One of the key advantages of the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift is its minimally invasive nature. A qualified plastic surgeon performs the procedure using small incisions, which result in minimal scarring and a faster recovery time compared to traditional surgical facelifts.
Recovery and Results
Following the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift, patients can expect a relatively short recovery period. Swelling and bruising are common but typically subside within a few weeks. Most individuals experience noticeable improvement in their midface contour, achieving a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Is the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift Right for You?
To determine if the midface lifting technique is the right cosmetic procedure for you, it is essential to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. They can assess your unique needs, discuss potential risks and benefits, and create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
In conclusion, the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift offers a safe and effective solution for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation. This procedure’s innovative approach and impressive results have made it popular among those seeking a more youthful appearance. Consult with a skilled plastic surgeon to explore if the ENDOTINE® Midface Lift is the right choice for you.
