Mid-face is the region including forehead, around eye, eyebrow, eye bags, nose and cheek, cheek and mouth edges.
What are the effects of aging in mid-face?
Since subcutaneous connective and supporting tissues lose their previous vitality and strength during aging period, they cannot stand the influence of gravity and droops begin to occur. During this, especially thin skinned soft tissue around eye is influenced, which results in droop of upper and lower eyelids and deepening of nasolabial folds due to droops of cheeks. Therefore, the first signals of aging appear in the mirror due to this droop occurring in middle-aged group without no deterioration in skin quality and skin wrinkles.

Tension of skin and a fake expression which occur in classic facelift operations will not appear in this operation.
Will there be any scar left following the operation?
There will be no scar left since the operation is performed by penetrating into the hairy part through 1-cm-incisions with endoscopic technique instead of big incisions formed in classic facelift operations and these incisions are hidden in the eyelashes part of the lower eyelid. Thanks to tiny cameras called endoscope, we can check larger areas by penetrating into subcutaneous tissue through small incisions. Therefore, both recovery process gets shorter and tissues are less-damaged.
