What is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is the most common type of facelift performed. It helps to eradicate wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of the face with small incisions around the ears. Definition is also restored to the chin by removing tightening and removing excess tissues.

Benefits of a Mini Facelift

The recovery time for this procedure is shorter, and incisions placed during surgery are minimal and nearly invisible.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate for a Mini Facelift?

If you are someone who is frustrated by signs of aging, but you do not feel that those signs are significant enough for a full facelift, a mini facelift may be for you.

What Do I Need To Do Before a Mini Facelift?

As with a traditional facelift, you will be examined to confirm that you are a good candidate for a mini-facelift. Tell the doctor if you have had any other injections within the past four months and if you’re taking any medications like aspirin or other blood thinners, allergy medication, NSAIDS or muscle relaxers.

How Long Does It Take to Perform a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is typically complete within two hours.

What to Expect After a Mini Facelift

Recovery time is usually less than two weeks for a mini facelift. You may feel confident returning to work after about a week, or it may take more time for your healing to allow you to resume normal activities. Swelling, bruising, sensitivity and discomfort are likely in the weeks following a mini facelift.

Will I Have Scars After a Mini Facelift?

Scarring is minimal with a mini facelift.

When Will I See The Results?
