I have begun reading blogs about facelifts. Can you tell me what the Serdev Suture Midface Lift is? Is it safe and/or effective?
The Serdev Suture midface lift is a type of midface lift that is performed by using sutures to elevate the malar fat pad. This is done in a minimally invasive technique, by passing the sutures through the skin and using them to elevate the tissues. My opinion regarding the use of sutures alone to elevate the facial tissues is that they do not work. Too often, I have seen patients that underwent these «lunch-time» lifts, which worked only for several days. Studies have been done and published which prove that these procedures do not work.
