One of the most exciting and popular additions to cosmetic surgery has been the mini facelift. It is a minimally invasive facelift procedure that addresses facial aging in the mid to lower region of the face. Both men and women can enjoy the natural rested and refreshed look of the mini facelift. Typically the mini facelift rejuvenates the nasolabial and marionette folds, sharpens the jaw line, lifts and defines the cheeks, and improves the neck.
Although the mini facelift is not as extensive as the facelift, it definitely will enhance your appearance. Candidates for the mini facelift are people who are demonstrating the signs of aging but do not want to undergo a more intensive surgery and anesthesia such as the facelift. This surgery is typically done with a local anesthetic and medications by mouth such as anti anxiety, sedatives and or pain medications. The skin is lifted and the underlying muscle and tissues are tightened, repositioned and excess fat is removed. Fat grafting to the nasolabial and marionette folds and cheek area can be performed at the same time. Also liposuction to the neck may be another modality added to the mini facelift. If indicated, laser resurfacing as well as eyelid surgery can be performed at the same time. The procedure takes anywhere from 2½ to 3 hours as you remain relaxed but conscious. This is an outpatient procedure and you will be able to return home shortly after the procedure with a family member or friend to take care of you. The mini facelift is designed to deliver superior results and less recovery and down time when compared to a traditional facelift surgery. Recovery from a mini face lift is much shorter than a traditional facelift and usually takes 1-2 weeks.
Finally the mini facelift procedure is much shorter and less invasive than a conventional facelift surgery and as a result the cost of the mine facelift is typically lower than a standard facelift operation.
