Those who are searching for a younger, more rejuvenated appearance may find mid-lower facelift surgery a useful option. This procedure primarily targets the cheek and jaw-line areas by tightening the underlying muscles, redraping the skin and removing excess skin prior to suturing to lift and restructure the lower face. Our chief cosmetic surgeon at ICCM specialises in a Mid & Lower Facelifts, also known as the MACS Lift.
The mid-facelift Sydney patients can access at ICCM, may rectify sagging cheek fat pads and transform the mid-face completely. This process will lift sagging muscles and skin creating a younger aesthetic image.
The primary areas rectified by the mid-facelift procedure are:
- Lifting sagging fat pads and skin
- Facial tightening
- Redefining the jaw-line
What are the benefits of this procedure?
- Procedure performed as Day-Surgery with anaesthesia
- All incisions are very well concealed
- Visible results with longevity
- A youthful look refreshing your facial aesthetic
Older patients around the fifties to early sixties may prefer facelift surgery with added procedures (such as eye-lid surgery or neck procedures) to see more dramatic results. All of this can be assessed and discussed during your initial planning consultation with the ICCM team.

How is the mid-facelift procedure performed?
Patients will be anaesthetised and the surgeon will make some initial incisions around the front to the bottom of the ears. This is how they will access any drooping facial muscles. The skin is then redraped and lifted over the resuspended muscles and excess skin will be trimmed prior to suturing removed from the muscle in the forehead or cheek area.
The primary goal of this procedure is to lift the cheek and jowl area, rejuvenating the face by improving the jawline. In some cases, patients may combine this procedure with a blepharoplasty or fat transfer procedure.

The mid-facelift cost starts from $13,950 or $90/week. Exact costs and information relevant to your situation is offered during your initial consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions
The longevity of the procedure will vary with each patient based on differences in healing and skin elasticity. With all of that in mind, mid to lower facelifts generally last 7-10 years. It is important to remember that these procedures do not stop the aging process; they reset it.
Incisions often follow natural creases, so scars typically aren't very noticeable. Our surgeons strategically work in such a way that hiding any necessary scar is very easy.
Any required stitches will be removed after the one week mark and you may experience some swelling and bruising which will heal on its own over several weeks. You should be able to return to work in around two weeks and should avoid any strenuous physical activity for approximately three weeks. The results of the procedure should be evident after two to four months.
The ideal candidate would be a person with premature ageing or a middle-aged patient who is experiencing sagging cheeks and jowls. Possibly complementary procedures such as neck lift or eye-lid surgery could also be added.
Along with bruising and swelling, which is to be expected, you may experience a small amount of skin puckering of the cheek pad. This will settle to a natural position by itself very quickly.
Combining the mid-facelift with other non-surgical procedures can help create an overall refreshed look with more noticeable results. If you are interested, be sure to mention your interest in a combination during your consultation.
