Mini Face Lift To Add Lift To The Mid-Face

Mini Facelift

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift, also referred to as a mini lift or S-lift, can achieve substantial facial rejuvenation results with less healing time than a traditional facelift. Mini facelift surgery is ideal for patients who are beginning to experience the first signs of aging, including laxity in the mid and lower face. Skin begins to lose collagen as you get older, leading to a loss of elasticity, structure, and volume. Cheeks begin to sag and facial wrinkles become more prominent. The mini face lift is designed to lessen these effects while also providing an alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Those who do not want to undergo a more invasive procedure, such as a full facelift, can opt for a mini facelift to tighten loose facial skin. The mini lift can improve jowls and elevate the cheeks for a younger-looking facial profile.

Your Mini Face Lift Procedure

Your mini facelift procedure may be performed at either an outpatient surgical facility or local hospital, depending on your particular surgery. Tiny incisions are made to carefully lift facial tissues that contribute to sagging or wrinkling. Any excess skin can be repositioned and removed, if necessary, to accentuate the natural contours of your face. Your mini facelift incisions are strategically placed to remain virtually unnoticeable.

Your mini face lift can be utilized alongside additional facial surgery procedures, including brow lift surgery, chin liposuction, and blepharoplasty, to further improve the appearance of your facial profile.

What To Expect After Undergoing Mini Facelift Surgery

Mini facelift patients can go home the same day of their surgery. Since the mini lift is less involved than a traditional facelift, you can expect less bruising and swelling to occur. Many patients experience approximately 1 week of downtime and usually return to work and most of their daily activities in that timespan. However, the specific timeframes of your recovery can be discussed in more detail with your mini facelift surgeon during your consultation.

Mini face lift surgery can achieve long-lasting improvements to the contours of your mid and lower face. The mini lift is designed to produce subtle enhancements to your profile for a natural-looking result that can last years.
