Do you want a more permanent anti-aging solution but don’t have the patience for a long recovery time traditional facelift brings? A mini facelift may be the procedure to meet your needs. Get all the benefits of reduced signs of aging with a mini facelift
What is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift is a surgical procedure that corrects signs of aging in areas that span the cheeks to jawline. Often called the “one-hour facelift”, the mini facelift fights early aging by lifting sagging cheeks and reducing wrinkles around your nose (nasolabial folds). The mini facelift is a great way to maintain a youthful jawline and rejuvenate your cheeks all with a quick recovery time.
Who Benefits From a Mini Facelift?
If you want to improve particular areas of your face such as tightening your cheeks and reducing wrinkle lines around your nose or mouth, you may benefit from a mini facelift as it typically concentrates on rejuvenating the middle face, cheeks, and lower eyelids. Other benefits you may experience from a mini facelift include:
- Younger, firmer skin
- Improved confidence
- Lifted cheek and jaw lines
- Shorter healing and recovery time
How Does the Mini Facelift Differ From the Traditional Facelift?
A mini facelift improves your face from under the eyes down to your jawline. The surgery is great for candidates with a youthful neckline and target areas above the jawline. A traditional facelift improves both your neck and facial features. In addition to correcting drooping cheeks, rejuvenating a youthful jawline, and reducing wrinkles from your nose to mouth, the traditional facelift also corrects “jowls” by removing excess chin and neck tissue.
Another difference between the mini facelift and the traditional facelift is recovery time. While the traditional facelift takes up to a month to fully recover, the mini facelift gets you back to your normal routines in half the time.
What Is the Mini Facelift Procedure Like?
The mini facelift is less invasive than the traditional facelift, but uses many of the same techniques to render similar results. With the help of local anesthesia and sedation, you will feel no pain during the procedure. First small incisions that follow your natural contours in front of your ear and along your jawline area are made. Then the provider skillfully separates underlying tissue from the skin. A thin thread is inserted into the muscle to pull the excess skin giving you a more youthful, rejuvenated positioning.
How Long Does Recovery Take?
Discomfort and healing time from a mini facelift are considerably shorter than a traditional facelift. You will feel some pain and tightness immediately after your surgery that normally subsides after three days. Stitches are removed within a week, and you may return to your normal routine.
