The Mini Facelift Guide | Pros and Cons

Everyone loses facial contour as time passes, but your natural beauty can come together as harmoniously as it once did with the help of a plastic surgeon. A mini facelift can provide results to smooth away wrinkles and lift sagging skin without the time and effort of traditional facelift surgery. Mini facelifts are the most common facelift procedure for men and women because they are less invasive. A skilled surgeon can help you achieve a refreshed look by accentuating your natural beauty with a mini facelift procedure. If you’ve lost definition in your jaw due to excess tissue, a mini facelift could be for you.

What are the Benefits of a Mini Facelift?

Highlight the beauty that is yours. When a mini facelift is appropriately timed, it will create a youthfulness and glow, while preventing the need for more dramatic changes later.

Minimal Scarring

A mini facelift is a minimally invasive procedure with fewer incisions than traditional surgery. Incisions placed along the hairline and near the ears will help pull back excess tissue and reconstruct the facial muscles.

Conservative Treatment, Local Anesthesia

Since there are fewer incisions, the recovery time and potential for complications are significantly reduced. Mini facelift surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. Since local anesthesia is used, you’ll be conscious during the procedure, but anesthetized and comfortable. The surgery time can vary, depending on the length of the procedure.

Self Confidence

There are many benefits to a mini facelift. You should look the way you feel inside — timeless. This procedure is noninvasive and can enhance your natural beauty, while improving the most noticeable signs of aging with minimal downtime.

Things to Consider

A mini facelift is for people who are looking for a little lift, especially in the lower half of their face. It is a perfect choice for younger patients because it is a maintenance procedure. The results are less dramatic than a traditional facelift, but can pinpoint specific signs of aging. You can also pair this procedure with other services to enhance your natural beauty.
