- Midface Facelift is a medical term used for a surgical procedure that aims to improve the symptoms of aging of the middle third of the face, which includes the collapse of soft tissue located above the cheekbones. The collapse of the structures of the middle third of the face can accentuate the furrows below the lower eyelids (nasoyugal groove) and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold), which in turn lead to a tired face. The fall of the soft tissue and loss of muscle tone associated with sagging skin contribute to the loss of the contours of the face and are related to a number of factors including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, and stress.
