Mild asymmetry is common after recovery from complete facial paralysis or following major reconstructive surgery. The mid-face is prone to developing imbalances because the force of gravity gradually overcomes the weak facial muscles, which produces drooping of the cheek.
Mid-face lift procedures can frequently provide effective correction of the drooping cheek and are often performed bilaterally in an effort to maximize facial symmetry. After undergoing a mid-face lift procedure patients are usually kept overnight in the hospital and discharged the following morning.
