WHAT IS A MINI FACELIFT?
A mini facelift is an excellent procedure for making quick, subtle changes that can help slow the aging process. The lifestyle lift can improve the appearance of the neck, lift the jowels and create a more youthful looking face. The procedure is popular among both men and women. It is especially done in younger patients because it can reduce the appearance of aging later in life and maintain a youthful appearance.
THE MINI LIFT PROCEDURE
A mini facelift is performed under local anesthesia in the office. The procedure takes around two hours and has a shorter recovery time than facelift surgery. The procedure is similar to a traditional facelift, however, the procedure is quicker and incisions are fewer and smaller. Our qualified surgeons at JJ Aesthetics – Hair Transplant & Skin, can customize a mini facelift procedure for his patients to address select problem areas, such as early jowling and mild laxity under the chin.
MINI FACELIFT RECOVERY AND RESULTS
Patients emerge from the procedure with a refreshed, youthful appearance, without looking like they have undergone surgery. The recovery time is about a week. However, some patients are resuming to their normal lives before the sutures even come out. In general, patients can expect a shorter downtime with a mini facelift than they would experience with a full facelift surgery.
HOW LONG DOES A MINI FACELIFT LAST?
After the recovery period, the results will last for a very long time, if not for the rest of the patient’s life.
