Most signs of age appear
on the mid-facial area

Mid-face is the area ranging from below the eyes to the tip of the nose.
Here, the most common signs of aging appear (e.g., tear troughs, nasolabial folds, nasojugal grooves, droopy jowls, etc.) and give grumpy, depressed or otherwise negative impressions.

Therefore, if you wish to efficiently manage your aging face and the negative impressions that come from it, you may want to consider face lifting that gives an overall lifting effect throughout the mid-facial area.

BANOBAGI can improve your mid-face, including the lower eyes

In general, the lower eyelid surgery that corrects the under-eye wrinkles and the mid-face lifting that corrects the droopy jowls are treated as independent procedures. However, facial aging does not occur separately in different areas: it is something that happens throughout the face simultaneously. Therefore, it is better to address all of such concerns with a single procedure. Fortunately, the mid-face lift can be done through a relatively small incision under the eyes: not too differently from a lower eyelid surgery.

This is why BANOBAGI, with our anatomical knowledge and understanding of each facial layer, offers a procedure that concurrently undertakes a lower-eyelid surgery and a mid-facial lift.

BANOBAGI Mid-Face Lifting: More Effective

    Two surgeries at once: based on our anatomical understanding of each facial layers!

More effective tightening and more stable fixing

BANOBAGI’s mid-face lifting consists of an Endotine-based facial lift and a lower-eyelid surgery. We evenly peel the mid-facial area from a micro-incision under the eyes and tighten the loose skin and other tissues.

Here, the key is to tighten the myofascial layer, the root of all facial wrinkles, as well as improve the fat distribution according to individual needs. Afterward, the tightened skin is evenly fixed into place with info Endotine, iconWhat is Endotine? Endotine B For lower-eyelid surgeries, Endotine ST For anchoring surgeries Endotine is an FDA-approved product made from bio-friendly material. Unlike simple stitching that focuses all the strength onto a single location, Endotine pulls the skin tissues with even pressure: preventing side-effects or reoccurrences and allowing for a more natural-looking wrinkle removal. Moreover, because the material naturally dissolves within the body over time, providing a semi-permanent fixation, Endotine is used in various antiaging procedures. and the procedure is complete when the incision is stitched back up.

BANOBAGI Mid-Face Lifting Process

BANOBAGI’s mid-face lifting has many advantages

The procedure is efficient because it can address complex sagging in the mid-facial area, including the lower-eye wrinkles, through a single surgery.

The concurrent procedure is safer than when each of the two surgeries that consists the mid-face lifting is carried out on their own: for example, the mid-facial lift prevents some of the side effects of an independent lower-eye surgery (e.g., overturned lower eyelid). In addition, the procedure returns the loose skin and tissues to their original place by factoring in the facial-expression muscles: the results are natural-looking and effective.
