Mid Facelift in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills

Newport Beach Mid-Face/Cheek Lift The mid facelift is a surgical procedure which lifts sagging cheeks for a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance to the mid-face region. Over time, the elasticity in the skin diminishes and sagging results. This can be particularly noticeable in the cheek area. The mid facelift, which is also referred to as a cheek lift, elevates sagging facial tissue in order to improve drooping in the midface and cheek area as well as smiles lines (nasolabial folds) and puffiness beneath the eyes. This, in turn, adds a youthful fullness and prominence to the cheeks.

Dr. Batniji is located in Newport Beach, California, and he is affiliated with several fully accredited surgery centers and hospitals throughout Southern California. He commonly performs procedures at the Newport Beach Surgery Center and at Hoag Memorial Presbyterian Hospital where he is a member of the Department of Plastic Surgery and the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Batniji has dedicated the whole of his career to facial plastic surgery and beautifying the face. He is an expert at creating beautiful, natural, long-lasting mid facelift results.


The mid facelift or cheek lift is appropriate for healthy men and women who have realistic expectations for improving sagging in the cheek and midface, smile lines, and under-eye puffiness. Less invasive than the traditional facelift, it is an ideal procedure for younger patients who do not have jowling or banding in the neck and are not yet ready for a full facelift.


The mid facelift or cheek lift may take two or more hours to complete and is often performed with local anesthesia or with general anesthesia. The incisions are generally well concealed and may be located within the hairline, within the lower eyelid or inside of the mouth. Working through this incision, Dr. Batniji will lift sagging tissue of the cheek and midface region. This procedure may be performed as an endoscopic procedure using a small camera device, or endoscope, inserted through very small incisions.

I am very pleased with the results of my surgery as well as the follow up care from the doctor, assistant, anesthesiologist, and office staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Batniji and staff to anyone who is considering plastic surgery.

The mid facelift may result in some amount of discomfort, bruising and swelling. Swelling and bruising will fade and the discomfort can be treated with medication. The sutures are often removed after five to seven days or, if dissolvable sutures are used, they will dissolve on their own. One to two weeks after your mid facelift, you should feel well enough to return to work and most other strenuous activities. You will, however, be advised to postpone more strenuous activities for a longer of time.


When considering a mid facelift, it is important to look at its cost. The price of a mid facelift varies depending on the patient’s needs and goals, the anesthesia that will be used, the techniques being employed, and the overall time needed to perform the surgery.
