Why Get a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is a lightweight procedure that heals very fast and has very little risk of scarring. This is why it is one of the most demanded facelift surgeries today, especially for people with only moderate facial sagging. It refines your facial tissues to give you a revitalized appearance and highlight your beauty at reduced costs in addition to the minimal healing time.

What Is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is a procedure to lift a small area of the face around the cheeks to correct sagging skin and wrinkles. Two small incisions are made in front of your ears as compared to a full facelift that involves supporting procedures on your neck or brow. Your skin is restored by removing the excess tissue under the skin and tightening what remains for a fresh and youthful appearance.

Why a Mini Facelift?

First, a mini facelift offers a very short recovery period and minimal swelling. Since only two small incisions are made, it is easier to heal than a full facelift which might involve serious incisions. Healing can take from three days to a week. Scarring is minimal since the two incisions are made on the hairline or facial contours where they can be concealed. The procedure itself is also very efficient as it takes only one hour to complete it.

In addition,a mini facelift is also very safe as compared to a full one. This is because it is a very small procedure and can be carried out under local anesthesia and sedation. With conservative anesthesia, you will not experience the disorientation that comes with general anesthesia meaning you can go home the same day! The recovery time for a more extensive facelift is two weeks.

Who Is Eligible for a Mini Facelift?

Most people seeking out a mini facelift procedure are young people with moderate facial sagging in the lower third of the face. The procedure is best for minor skin laxity compared to older people who have significant laxity in the face and neck area.

If you have a sagged but thinner jaw, you are also an ideal candidate for a mini facelift. People with thinner jaws have minimal fatty deposits on their faces which reduces the stress on the skin. Skin sagging is thus reduced which can easily be corrected with this small procedure.

Correct Signs of Aging with a Mini Facelift Procedure

Has your skin started to sag in a way that ages you? Do you see more wrinkles than you’d like in the mirror? If this sounds like you, it may be time to consider a mini facelift to reverse the signs of aging.

A mini facelift is a cosmetic surgery that takes care of wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower part of the face. This kind of facelift removes excess tissue around the chin and tightens the remaining tissue.

There are several emotional and physical benefits that a mini facelift offers such as minimal scarring. Since it is a smaller surgery, it is less invasive than a traditional facelift. This allows you to recover and enjoy the results faster. Also, a mini facelift complements a person’s natural features and can make a huge difference in a person’s quality of life. Most importantly, this cosmetic procedure can be done in a few hours.

What makes this cosmetic procedure attractive to many is that provides results that are natural looking. A mini facelift can also clearly define a person’s face and provide a more youthful look. A mini facelift minimizes drooping or sagging in the lower portion of the face, reducing the signs of aging.

Those who make a good candidate for a mini lift are people with minor sagging skin and wrinkles. Of course, good health is important for this procedure. Keep in mind, this procedure is less invasive than a facelift but it is still surgery.

For those who have high blood pressure or diabetes, our doctor may want you to postpone the surgery until these issues are under control. Smoking should be curtailed several weeks before surgery and certain medications and supplements may need to be avoided. Most importantly, one should also have realistic expectations for this cosmetic surgery. There are several differences of a mini facelift compared to a full facelift.

Treat the Jowls and Neckline with a Mini Facelift

A traditional facelift is performed to smooth out the entire lower half of the face. This is accomplished by lifting away the skin and draping it back into place after some skin has been removed. If only a localized area of the face needs smoothing, such as the jawline, a limited incision facelift, also known as a mini facelift, can be performed.

A mini facelift is a rather simple surgical procedure because only tiny incisions are made, and any subdermal tissue repositioning or removal can be accomplished through the use of tiny tools. This procedure can greatly improve the appearance of the jawline by eliminating sagging jowls.

Versus a Traditional Facelift

A mini facelift is a much simpler procedure because it treats only the skin and subdermal tissue around the jaw. This makes it appealing as an alternative to a traditional facelift because the incisions are smaller, and the overall procedure is less invasive.

Ideal Candidates

The jawline can be a depository for excess fatty tissue. This results in a drooping of the skin, the appearance of jowls and some folding of the skin on the upper neck. If the skin can be pulled upward and outward, the folding disappears and the jowls are much less noticeable. Adults in good overall health who have otherwise taut skin on their cheeks and upper face but who suffer from drooping skin on the jaw are ideal candidates for a mini facelift.

A Simple Outpatient Procedure

When we perform a mini facelift, we give the client a localized anesthetic with sedation. General anesthesia through intravenous means is rarely necessary. This is an outpatient procedure that is performed in the comfort of our surgical suite. You are able to go home on the same day as your procedure.

Long-Lasting Results

The skin will now be more taut and smooth, and the jawline will no longer show drooping. The uppermost portion of the neck skin will also show improvement. Properly performed, a mini facelift can result in visual improvement for a long time.
