Mini Facelift Surgery
As you get older, your skin starts to lose its elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to form as the skin starts to sag. A mini facelift is an ideal solution for individuals who are just starting to show early signs of aging. Many individuals seek mini facelift surgery in their mid-30s or older. It can help you boost your confidence and self-esteem. Recovery can be faster than a full facelift, which makes it a popular facial option for many individuals.
What is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift is an outpatient cosmetic procedure for men and women that corrects sagging skin along the lower part of the face. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia and takes under two hours to complete. Incisions are typically made around the hairline and extended behind the ears. Excess fat and skin are removed, and muscles are tightened to provide a more youthful appearance.
Minimal scarring and bruising are expected but can be managed with over-the-counter medications and ice packs. You may be able to resume normal activities within a few days with full recovery typically occurring within two weeks. A conventional facelift can take three weeks or more for a full recovery. Results for a mini facelift can last up to 10 years. A mini facelift can be combined with other cosmetic procedures for a fuller facial rejuvenation.
