At Eyelid Center of Utah, Dr. Kian Eftekhari specializes in mid-face lift procedures, also known as cheek lifts, to address early signs of aging around the eyes and cheekbones. While traditional facelifts focus on the jawline, a mid-face lift targets the area beneath the eyes and along the cheeks, where volume loss and sagging occur with age.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for a mid-face lift are individuals who experience mid-facial sagging, noticeable lines, and loss of volume in the cheeks. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. During a consultation, Dr. Eftekhari evaluates each patient’s facial anatomy and concerns to determine if a mid-face lift is the right solution for their needs.

The Procedure

Dr. Eftekhari performs minimally invasive mid-face lift surgeries, offering two options based on individual needs. One approach involves a small incision hidden beneath the eyelid to tighten ligaments and muscles in the cheek area, potentially removing excess fat. This procedure can be done in-office under local anesthesia, offering minimal downtime.

Alternatively, Dr. Eftekhari can perform a mid-face lift without visible incisions. Using a fiber-optic camera, he lifts and volumizes the cheeks through a hairline incision. While this procedure requires anesthesia, it’s an effective solution for mid-facial sagging and can be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments.


Patients can typically return home the same day after their mid-face lift procedure. Bruising around the eyes is common and may last for 1-2 weeks. Dr. Eftekhari advises against heavy lifting or straining activities to promote proper wound healing.
