Mid Facelift

Mid Facelift Review

Mr. Lambe and Jayne, his secretary were extremely helpful and professional from the beginning of the process. I have seen a few surgeons before while I was doing my research and I don’t exaggerate when I say that after the first interaction I knew 100% that I found what I was looking for. I remember calling my friend straight away and told him, that’s it, he is the one!

He was patient, professional, kind and really caring from the beginning. I had tons of questions and done my research thoroughly before I spoke with him, so I had questions around the tiniest details and he patiently answered all of them without getting annoyed or frustrated whereas other surgeons didn’t really want to take time to explain anything or seemed to be either ignorant or arrogant. Some people might not be as nervous as I was about the procedure, but I think a procedure like this is a big decision about your body, so I wanted to have a piece of mind that my doctor would truly take care of me before and on the day and after. Mr Lambe didn’t fall short on anything, when I expressed my worries to him, actually he offered he is happy to hold my hand before I fall asleep if I want to and I was happy, I didn’t even have to ask for it, but he had a good understanding how important it is.

At the same time of course, I didn’t feel any pressure from him going ahead with anything even on the actual day. So another reason why I also chose him, because he was the only and first one who said he likes to keep his patients in for the first night just in case any assistance is needed. And I think that was needed as well. I felt sick even the next day, but it was good that the nurses were there on the first day/night and confirmed everything is fine or what I can and cannot do. At the end of the day it is a surgery and my wellbeing was just as important as the outcome.

He is very knowledgeable with excellent empathetic and interpersonal skills and down-to-earth person and anybody can be assured they will be in good hands with him. The after-care from them was amazing as well. I could talk to Jayne any time on the phone and Mr. Lambe came back to my emails promptly whenever I had any concerns and provided his expertise when it was needed. He is a very pleasant person and easy to talk to which you really want from your surgeon and am very happy I found him and went ahead with the procedure.

I love my results and I would go to him again if I needed anything.

What is a Mid Facelift?

A Mid Facelift is an operation to lift the cheek through an incision in the lower eyelid.

It helps to rejuvenate the central third of the face i.e under the eyes and improves the lines that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. It lifts the slumed cheek back up to where it used to be in youth and totally refreshes the face

The Results

You should have a natural, refreshed look with a harmonious contour from your lower eye towards your cheek

Case Study

Mid Facelift – Naomi*


Naomi came to me asking if anything could be done about her “drawn and tired” appearance. She was not sure what was giving her this look but noticed that the area around her eyes looked tired and she was getting fed up with people asking if she was weary when she was actually feeling ok but her looks did not match how she felt. 

Patient Background

She is a mother and works part tie in her husband’s business. She has a large circle of friends and was receiving well meaning remarks but they were beginning to upset her. She was otherwise quite well and had not had any other cosmetic procedures in the past. She was a non-smoker and did not wear any contact lenses. Examination showed that she had some lower eye bags but also a clear line beneath the eye were the fat had descended giving a hollow and tired expression. I explained that the combination of an eye lift and lifting this fat back up, known as a Mid Facelift, was the best operation to rejuvenate her face and that was quite clear when looking at old photos that she brought in for me to look at.

Questions at Consultation

Naomi wanted to know how long the operation would take and when she would be presentable again for work and socializing. I explained the procedure takes up to 3 hrs and that all patients bruise differently but in general people are able to get back to work in 10 days with a little make up used to cover the areas that are still settling

1st Consultation

I examined Naomi carefully to ensure that her eyes were healthy and that there were no problems with her lids. Things that are important to check for include differences in the position of the lids and dry eyes. A test to look at how lax the lower eyelid is done also as this is something that can be secured at the time of surgery to ensure that post operatively there is no shift in position.

I showed her the different patients I had done with both pre and post op pics and explained how the operation is done and the major risks that come with the surgery as well as the normal post op course of recovery for most of my patients

2nd Consultation

At the second consultation we went through some questions Naomi had after reading the informed consent form and she asked about when she would be reviewed post op. I explained that I see my patients at a week post op to review the wounds and then after 2 weeks. We took her pre op photographs and she read and signed the consent documents 

The Day of Surgery

On the day of her cosmetic surgery I went to see Naomi with my Anaesthetist and we explained what was going to happen. She was happy with the plan and she was first on the list that day so she was not waiting and worrying. The procedure went as planned and she was returned to the ward with cooling packs over her eyes which help to reduce any swelling and discomfort. I saw her the next day when she was less bruised than I expected and discharged her home

Post Op Care

It’s important to take it easy during the first seven days of recovery and have someone on hand to look after you for the first 24 hours after your surgery.  Your swelling/bruising should peak at three or four days post op but usually patients feel well enough to move around the house after one or two days. You will be booked in to see Mr Lambe for a post operative review after one week and then again a week after that to ensure her healing is as expected.

Patient Feedback 

I wish I could find words to express how grateful I am to you.  I am delighted with the results so far and all my expectations have been exceeded beyond anything I could have hoped for.  I will be eternally indebted to you.

Who should have a mid facelfit

If you have a sunken or tired appearance under the eyes
or have noticed a line between your cheek and your lower
eye bags.

Who shouldn't have a mid facelift

As with all surgery, smokers should not be operated on as it significantly reduces their recovery, this includes people who wear a nicotine patch and people who vape as the nicotine ingested by the body significantly impacts on your ability to heal well from cosmetic surgery so would likely result in your wounds breaking down and not healing properly which leads to added complications and more time in hospital.

Why is it more expensive for a Mid Facelift

This is a more extensive dissection and so it takes longer and has slightly increased risks. It also needs lots of skill and expertise to ensure the best results.
