I had a lower bleph 4 months ago which left me with retraction. I have been advised to do a mid face lift, plus a graft on to my lid from my mouth, and then a tightening procedure. Is this wise? I've read right here on this forum of those who's mid face life CAUSED their retraction! Also, what should I expect to pay for those procedures? Many thanks
How Much Does This Retraction Fix Normally Cost?

Eyelid Retraction after Blepharoplasty
Midface lift along with a hard palate graft and lid tightening is a good method to correct eyelid retraction after blepharoplasty. Whether this is the best procedure for you or not, I don't know since I did not examine you. I would tell you that it is a good idea to wait at least 6 months after the procedure to do the repair.
The cost would depend on several factors and therefore I could not give you any specific number.

Midface lift with lower eyelid graft is a valid option if the problem is lower eyelid scarring/tethering and/or skin shortage. Paresis/weakness of the eyelid muscle can also contribute to it, for which surgery is not the answer. There are also nonsurgical options for lower lid retraction.
