What is a midface lift?

A midface lift tightens the skin around the cheeks, rejuvenating the area between the nose and the eyes. As opposed to a full facelift or lower facelift, this procedure does not target the jawline. Unlike a brow lift, it also does not address aging symptoms around the forehead. 

What happens during a midface lift?

Dr. Miller typically performs midface lifts in under two hours using local anesthesia, so you may not be under full sedation. He makes two small incisions by the hairline, which allows him to tighten muscles, reposition fat, and remove excess skin. You will be able to return home on the same day as your procedure. 

How much does a midface lift in New York City cost?

Midface lifts can range in cost from $4,000 to $10,000 in New York City. Dr. Miller will discuss the specific cost with you during your consultation in Manhattan. These procedures are typically less expensive than a full facelift. 


*Prices reflect the average cost of the procedure in the area. For an actual quote, please contact Dr. Miller directly.

What questions should I ask my midface lift surgeon?

  • What are your qualifications, and how many midface lifts have you performed?
  • Can you show me before-and-after photos of previous midface lift patients?
  • Am I a good candidate for a midface lift?
  • What specific technique will you use for my midface lift?
  • What type of anesthesia is required for this procedure?
  • Can you walk me through the midface lift procedure step by step?
  • What should I expect during the recovery process?
  • What are the potential risks and complications of a midface lift?
  • How do you handle complications if they occur?
  • Where will the incisions be made, and what will the scars look like?
  • How long will the results of the midface lift last?
  • What is the total cost of the midface lift, including all associated fees?
  • What is your policy on revisions if I’m not satisfied with the outcome?
  • How much time will I need to take off work or other activities for recovery?
  • How should I prepare for the surgery to ensure the best possible outcome?

Who should consider a midface lift?

A midface lift is ideal if you’re experiencing early signs of aging around your midface, including:


  • Sagging cheeks that have lost their fullness and appear droopy
  • Deepening nasolabial folds
  • Hollows under the eyes 
  • Decreased definition in the cheekbones
  • Loose skin and diminished volume in the midface area

Dr. Miller may recommend a full facelift if you have more advanced signs of aging, like a sagging jawline or deep lines in your upper face.

What does recovery after a midface lift look like?

Mild bruising and swelling are common for the first few days after surgery. Most patients need 7-10 days of recovery time before they can resume their normal activities. You should avoid exercise for about three weeks. Most patients can see their full results in approximately 2-3 months after the procedure.

Will I have scars after a midface lift?

Scars will be minimal after surgery. Dr. Miller places incisions near the ears or hairline so they won’t be noticeable after the procedure. This is part of providing patients with natural-looking results.

What are the risks of a midface lift?

Swelling, bruising, and temporary numbness are common side effects that usually subside within a few days. Partnering with an experienced surgeon like Dr. Miller can reduce your risk of more serious complications.

How long can the results of a midface lift last?

Results from a midface lift may last for 10-15 years with proper care.

Will my insurance cover a midface lift?

Insurance does not typically cover the cost of plastic surgery, since it is an elective procedure.
