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

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.

Mini Facelift FAQs

How many years does a mini facelift last?

The results of a mini facelift have the potential to last 10 years or longer. It’s important to remember that how long your mini facelift results last will vary depending on your body’s natural aging processes. Dr. Martin may suggest considering non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures like dermal fillers and injectables to better maintain your desired results for the long run.

At what age should you get a mini facelift?

While there is no perfect age to get a mini facelift, Dr. Martin typically sees patients between the ages of 30 and 40 come in for the procedure. That being said, he’s happy to provide a mini facelift to patients in their fifties, sixties, or seventies who wish to refresh their look. The best way to find out if a mini facelift is right for you is to come in for a consultation with Dr. Martin.
