Are you feeling self-conscious about the sagging skin and wrinkles on your midface? Do you feel like your face looks tired and aged, even when you’re well-rested? If you’re considering ways to rejuvenate your appearance, you may want to look into Midface Lift Surgery.

Fellowship-trained, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Eric Cerrati, MD, FACS, discusses seven signs that indicate you should consider midface lift surgery.

When Should I Consider a Midface Facelift?

Is it time for surgical aesthetic interventions on your midface region to combat the signs of aging? The following issues could indicate it’s time to see Dr. Cerrati for a consultation:

  1. Sagging Skin on the Midface: As we age, our skin loses elasticity which can result in sagging skin on the midface. This can make you look tired and older than you are. If you’ve tried non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers but haven’t achieved the results you want, a midface lift may be the solution.
  2. Deep Nasolabial Folds: Nasolabial folds are the lines that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. As we age, these folds deepen and can make us look older. If you have deep nasolabial folds, a midface lift can help smooth out these lines and give you a more youthful appearance.
  3. Drooping Cheeks: Cheeks that have lost their volume and droop can give the impression of a tired and aged appearance. A midface lift can help lift and contour the cheeks, restoring a more youthful and refreshed look.
  4. Tired-Looking Eyes: The midface lift can also help improve the appearance of tired-looking eyes. By lifting the midface, the eyes are opened up, and the appearance of bags or dark circles may also be reduced.
  5. Jowls: Jowls are excess skin and fat that hangs down from the jawline. They can give the appearance of a heavy and aged face. A midface lift can help improve the appearance of jowls and create a more defined jawline.
  6. Loss of Volume in the Midface: As we age, we lose volume in our face, particularly in the midface area. This can cause the cheeks to look hollow and sunken. A midface lift can help restore volume to the midface, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
  7. Dissatisfaction with Non-Surgical Treatments: If you’ve tried non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers or Botox® but haven’t achieved the desired results, a midface lift may be the next step. A midface lift is a more invasive procedure than non-surgical treatments but can provide longer-lasting and more dramatic results.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!
