Over the years, the fat and muscles on the cheeks fall and the bone grows thinner, causing the orbital cavity to enlarge. Lifting of the mid third recovers facial angulation and accentuates the oval of the face making it look fresh and young.
There are different techniques to reposition these tissues accomplishing its movement and elevation, therefore shortening the distance between the eye and the cheekbone and diminishing wrinkles on the sides of the eyes.
This procedure is also known as Zygomatic Suspension or Minilifting. It is usually performed together with Frontoplasty, using the same endoscopic technique and same incisions. It is combined, as mentioned before, with Blepharoplasty, achieving rejuvenation of the mid and upper thirds of the face.
