Abstract

The middle third of the face has remained a particularly challenging area for facial plastic surgeons to rejuvenate. Many approaches have been advocated, but no one favored technique predominates. The surgical technique of the senior author is reviewed, which has been successfully employed for the past 7 years and which has proven an effective technique in restoring midfacial youth without concomitant lateral-canthal distortion or significant morbidity. The intended objectives of this article are for the reader to understand the specific details of how to perform this technique and the rationale proposed for how a natural midface elevation is achieved by this method.
