A mini facelift is a type of cosmetic surgery that addresses sagging skin and wrinkles on the lower third of the face. It only requires small incisions that are placed around the ears to remove excess tissue and tighten the remaining tissue. Our skilled plastic surgeon will customize a mini facelift to give each patient a more refreshed and youthful appearance. The aim is to accentuate your natural beauty and boost your confidence.
A mini facelift is appealing to men and women because it removes the most prominent signs of aging, such as the loss of definition in the jaw line. During a consultation with our expert, you can learn about the procedure and if you are a good candidate for a mini facelift. Our specialist will examine the structure of your face, including the texture and the elasticity of your skin. The underlying bone structure and muscles may be contributing to sagging and lines in certain places that make you look old and tired.
There are many benefits of a mini facelift, both physical and emotional. There is minimal scarring because the incisions are very small and are easily concealed by hair and your natural facial contours. There is less discomfort after surgery than with an extensive facelift. Your appearance will most likely improve, giving you self-confidence. It may even improve your quality of life.
Mini facelifts are not one-size-fits-all. Our talented plastic surgeon will examine your face, discuss the different options available and help you have reasonable expectations of the outcome. It does not affect the eyes or forehead, but reduces sagging around the jaw line, neck and cheeks.
The mini facelift procedure is usually completed in a few hours. The results may last for five to ten years. It is important to understand that the normal aging process will continue and your face will be affected by smoking, gravity, sun exposure and pollution.
The recovery time for a mini facelift is much shorter than a full facelift. However, it does take a little bit of time. You will see immediate results, but the final results may take up to a year to be apparent. Our specialist will monitor your recovery to ensure that you are achieving your desired results.
