There is no one operation that lasts longer than the next. The quality of the result depends upon the surgeon, as well as the individual tissues.
Try a cheek suspension
I offer cheek suspensions instead of mid face lifts. It is less recovery time and it will lift your sagging tissue from the area above the nasolabial fold up and lateral to its original position. It will also improve your lip and the sagging skin next to it.
Longest Lasting Midface Lift Technique
The longevity of results depends on the surgeon, not the technique. It is fair to say the results will last forever because you'll always look better than you would if you didn't have the surgery. The method selected does depend on the needs of each patient, but I prefer doing the midface lift via a lower eyelid incision with Endotine fixation.
Long lasting results from midface lift
The longevity of results from a midface lift depends on several factors, including actual technique employed by the plastic surgeon and inherent tissue qualities of the patient. Your plastic surgeon should discuss what results may reasonably be expected in your particular case.

The mid face lifting is a delicate operation. E
When a mid face lift is done effectively, it has to last forever because if not, the effects can be disastrous. The reason is that the mid face lift is often done with a lower blepharoplasty so that the excess laxity under the lower lid can be removed. If the results of the midface lift do not last then the lower lid would pulled and this would cause an ectopion or at least a deforming scleral show. Many different techniques exist but you have to make sure you go to the surgeon with the best experience who is confident that his result will last.
Midface Lift longevity
There is really no way to compare longevity of methods, as there are so many different methods used. I, personally, do not do a separate midface lift. Instead, I lift the midface when doing a facelift or lower blepharoplasty (eyelift). You need to ask whomever you see to show you results and discuss longevity. A simple guideline, however, is that methods that secure the elevated tissues to something solid, like fascia or periosteum instead of other soft tissue, will generally last longer.
