The best candidates for this procedure are women or men between 30 and 45 years old with mild to moderate upper or lower facial and/or neck laxity.
The mini-facelift is ideal for people who want to stay ahead of the aging process. It is also effective for patients who have previously had full facelifts, but desire an additional rejuvenation of the face and/or neck area.
As one grows old, skin loses its elasticity and many people develop loose skin folds that create a heavy, jowly and tired appearance. The mini-facelift gives an overall lift to eyes and forehead, the cheeks or the neck area. This minimally invasive outpatient procedure firms and restores the upper part of the face, the cheeks, or the lower facial area (improves jaw line definition/neck-chin angle) into a more youthful appearance.
The mini-lift is a good option in many cases because it is less invasive than a full facelift. Its short recovery time and lower cost have made it accessible to a wide range of patients who are looking for facial rejuvenation at a reasonable price. Mini-facelift patients see quick, natural looking results with very short recovery times.
Patients should keep in mind that this procedure is recommended when slight sagging is present in the skin of the forehead, eye, cheek or neck areas.
The mini-facelift is done under local anesthesia and sedation. This surgery can be done in conjunction with other surgical procedures.
