Upper Vs. Lower Vs. Mid-Facelift: Which is Best?

Like many ageing men and women, you’ve decided that you’re ready for facial rejuvenation. If you’re experiencing a variety of ageing concerns and aren’t getting the results you want through less invasive procedures, a surgical facelift might be your best bet. Many patients that come into our office assume that ‘facelift’ is a catch-all term for restoring the entire face.

The truth is, a facelift is an entirely customisable procedure. There are countless types of facelifts as well as numerous methods for performing each. The skilled surgeon’s at Sthetix Cosmetic Surgical Clinic routinely perform upper, lower, and mid-facelifts with exceptional results for the patient.

Which Facelift is Best?

Every patient ages differently. What’s best for one patient may not necessarily be the best for another. In fact, depending on your individual needs you may be better suited for one or more of the following facelift procedures to achieve your desired results.

Upper Facelift

An upper facelift procedure typically addresses visible concerns on the brow and forehead. Incisions are easily concealable and made within the natural contours of your hairline. Drooping brows and horizontal forehead lines are corrected by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles on the upper portion of the face.

I immediately felt in good hand. Dr Alvi Reputation was very impressive. On meeting him I was relieved how honest and clear he was and I’m looking forward to getting my procedure this month.

Lower Facelift

Lower facelift procedures are done to combat concerns below the corners of the mouth. Patients can minimize the appearance of nasolabial folds, laugh lines, and improve the contours of their jawline. A lower lift can sometimes address the under-chin and neck area as well to restore your natural beauty.


A mid-facelift helps reduce ageing in the area between the corners of the mouth to the corners of the eyes. That includes everything from the nose to the cheeks, and above the lip. Minimize fine lines and wrinkles along with smoothing sagging skin in the mid-face. This type of facelift can take years off your facial appearance by restoring more youthful contours.

Volume replacement may be a good addition in selected cases to enhance the overall result of a face lift. Face lift procedures do not restore volume loss.

Combination Procedures

Ageing doesn’t always occur in one area of the face at a time. Many patients can benefit from combination procedures that provide enhanced results with a single recovery. Volume replacememt, neck lift procedures or an eyelid lift are complementary procedures and can easily be paired with your facelift. After a careful evaluation and speaking to you about your goals, your surgeon will customize a procedure tailored just for you.
